Monterosa - Champoluc, Alagna, Gressoney, Cervinia, Macugnaga, Saas-Fee, Zermatt


From the melting snow and the retiring glaciers on top of the  Monte Rosa massif, rivers formed the well-known valleys of this area. From the Middle Ages people have been building their villages here and today those villages are the famous resorts of Monterosa. Starting from at the feet of the Matterhorn, we find Cervinia and Zermatt, going northeast to Saas Fee, and going southeast to Champoluc, Gressoney, Alagna and Macugnaga.

This time of the year it is the randonee ski (and splitboard) that rule the mountain. We would like to share a piece of the beautiful backcountry of Champoluc and Monterosa, in this short movie.

Oh what a day! 4810,45 meters over the sea the beautiful Mont Blanc stretches high up in the sky as the highest mountain in Europe. The massif mountain lies along the French-Italian boarder and reaches into Switzerland. Amazing and beautiful, covered with glaciers, we got the chance to head out on an adventure to experience this.
