Massimo Beltrame
One of the most famous place in the world for freeride. Impressive and very wild landscapes, the huge Monte Rosa, the second tallest peak in the Alps (15203 ft) overwhelming the valley, breathtaking itineraries between glaciers and fantastic valleys. The town is famous for its buildings built in the XV and XVI century. Unesco World Heritage since 2013. Balma, Malfatta, Olen, Giacchetti the most famous freeride itineraries. ... Full Review

Awarded as on of "The Top 7 Ski Resorts in Europe Right Now" from National Geographic in December 2016, Alagna includes 6,500 feet of vertical slope and features three lifts, which connect it to two additional valleys and the ski areas of Champoluc and Gressoney. Together, the three areas form the Monterosa Ski Area and access 111 miles of inbounds runs. But you don’t come to Alagna only to ski inbounds. You come to ski lines like the Malfatta and Vitoria couloirs, and the six-mile-long La Balma, which winds down a glacier and past ancient farming hamlets. You come to ski huge off-piste bowls and heli-ski untouched gems like the Col du Lys, Colle Ippolita, and the Valley of the Black Horse. Off the mountain, Alagna is quite basic—a smattering of ancient houses, hotels, and family-run restaurants. So, if it’s a rowdy après scene or five-star amenities you’re after, Alagna isn’t for you. But, if you’re looking for some of the best skiing—and food & drink—of your life, and to soak in the mountains and the culture of a place that hasn’t changed in hundreds of years, Alagna is your spot. ...

Alagna it has got the international reputation for being the Freeride Capital of the Alps. Well deserved. Huge slopes from 3300m to 1200m (or from 3780m if you eliski from Tre Amici Peak) wild landscape, huge variety of itineraries (Balma is the most famous together with Malfatta) very professional guides, a sense of mountain difficult to find anywhere. Very close to Malpensa Airport (110km) ... Full Review

The town is non existent and there is absolutely nothing to do. There are barely any people around and if they are then they are hiding in there rooms from the awful site. The food is great and probably the best thing but unfortunately there's nobody on the restaurants. THERE ARE NO HOT ITALIAN MEN. Weather was good 3 days out of week but otherwise you were going through clouds. ... Full Review
