Driving to Monterosa ski resorts
For Gressoney and Champoluc, road access is via the Aosta Valley A5 toll motorway. The Gressoney exit is Pont St Martin and the Champoluc exit is Verres. The route to Alagna is via Borgosesia, with a significantly longer section of mountain approach road. Day trips, by road, to other resorts are not a practical option from Alagna.
For Champoluc and Gressoney, a car is useful if you’re either staying in an area away from the lifts (such as Gressoney St Jean) or want to ski in some of the outlying areas like Brusson, Antagnod and Bieltschocke/Weissmatten. These can all be reached by bus but by car is quicker. You can also drive to Pila in less than 90 minutes.
If staying in Alagna, you’re unlikely to need a car within the resort unless your accommodation is a far from the ski lift (for instance, if you’re staying in the village of Wold), and there are no other resorts nearby.
