Europe, Where's the best noncarving terrain?


Recommended Posts

We're looking for the best area for an early to mid March trip over to the Alps. Looking for the best advice for a 10 ski day trip. All of the guys that are going love the bumps and the steeps, so we're not looking for the best corduroy. We firmly believe that if you don't come back from vacation completely worn out, you should have stayed home and worked.

We'd also like a large area or one that several short trips exposing a lot of terrain is possible. Don't want the same run day after day. We will be hardbooting it but on shorter, quicker and less stiff boards that we use off-piste. Anyone else interested?

Early to mid-march, at least adapt your plans to holiday periods.

French alps normally school holidays are from mid-february till mid-march (approximately).

Make sure to avoid this period, because liftlines are much longer and slopes very crowded.

Italy doesn't have such school holiday period, except for around newyear. So that would be a nice option.

Very good destination is Valle d'Aosta in the extreme NW-corner of Italy. Best-known resorts there: Cervinia, La Thuile, Monterosaski, Courmayeur.

Especially Gressoney-la-Trinite in the Monterosa-ski area is very interesting


The long awaited connection between the Gressoney valley and the Alagna valley is opened this season.

-Beautiful area extending over 3 valleys, 180 km's of slopes

-Very modern lifts

-Very quiet (still....) slopes

-The best offpiste of Europe 2 lifts away, in Alagna

-And old-charm villages, not a tourism factory
