Snowshoes and walks

The best way to experience snowshoes is to seek out fresh snow! This is why, depending on the season, we propose different destinations: Pastore Refuge below the southern wall of Monte Rosa, Peccia lake in Val Vogna or along the Sesia river. Not much snow? There is still a chance: climb to 3000m and snowshoe around Passo dei Salati!

If you don’t like snow so much, you can have that same wild winter experience with trekking boots and Nordic walking poles.

Free-riding & Heli-skiing

Ski off-piste in Free-ride Paradise! Alagna Valsesia is known as Freeride Paradise. Skiers and snowboarders come from all over northern Europe to try the legendary La Balma slope! You climb past Passo dei Salati to 3030m using the new chairlift, before descending to Pastore refuge, all off-piste, snow permitting. Alagna Alpine guides are known all over Italy for their expertise and training on the matter of safety. Their familiarity with the 4000m of Monte Rosa is your guarantee of an exciting and adrenalin-fuelled experience!

Winter Running

Where’s the pleasure in running in a cold wood, maybe even in the snow? Well, if you are a runner there’s no need for an answer! You already know! Our manager considers it a regular appointment! Followed by the Spa! On the slight slope connecting Alagna with Riva Valdobbia, there are 6 km or 12 km routes, in the woods, beside the river, along the road and on the snow too! We can build a route together, based on your fitness.

Bring winter running clothes: trousers, t-shirt and long socks, a fleece, warm gloves and cap. And the shoes? Your normal running shoes will do, but if you have them, bring your trail shoes! Remember the words of Aldo Rock: “there is no such thing as bad conditions, just weak athletes!!”

Winter paragliding

All you need is a little courage and a beautiful day! Then you take the cable-car up to Pianalunga at 2000 metres and you fly for 20 minutes as far as Riva Valdobbia, right over Alagna Valsesia.

Michele Enzio, who will fly with you, will follow the thermals and the wind: he says it’s fantastic!
