See the map for this beautiful ski marathon on the glaciers of Monte Rosa.
The organization of the classic race has decided to ostpone the start because of the very bad weather forecasts for this week-end. At the moment it is not yet decided when it will be possible to start. Hopefully the participants have to wait only for a couple of days. News on www.trofeomezzalama.org
See Carlos blog with very intersting pictures and information during his top tours and trekkings in the Spanish mountains and on Monte Rosa's Dufour Spitze 4643 meters peak.
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.
We started our web site in 1996 with the aim of informing about the Monterosa area; the mountains and the villages surrounding the second biggest mountain chain of Europe. We also include suggestion of tours both in winter and in summer to explore and enjoy the mountains and we offer our expertise to help you travel here with us.

This time I'm presenting a guest blogger, Maja Aase. She writes of her experiences on her and her son's trekking trip with me to Refugio Arp. Enjoy!
It is Halloween or even better in Italy it is called ”The Dead”. It is the holiday when people are allowed to leave their jobs for a couple of days to go home and honor their dead ones. An old tradition, still living in the soul of many.
I was making my trip to check some new hotels and places in Italy for coming travels with my guests, and had totally forgotten about the celebration that was expected. Except for the fact that nearly everything this time reminded me of dead, witches and phantoms.
The differences in the Italian landscape are huge, as everyone knows. The mountains are big and real and the Mediterranean is always present not only because of the blue sea that surround nearly all the borders of my country, but also because it is the cause of the good food and wines, and of the spirit of the people, even the people living in the Italian Alps.
