Ski and snowboard enthusiasts from around the world:

We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will shut down on July 13, 2020. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience. For inquiries about Mountain News Corporation, please email Feedback_OTS@mountainnews.com.

We want to thank our loyal employees for their tireless work over the years to bring great information to all of you. We take comfort knowing that our collective passion for the sport of skiing and snowboarding will certainly live on.

We’ll see you on the mountain.

Overview

The Val di Viù is the destination of numerous skiers who can choose between 23 km of downhill ski runs accessed by the lift systems of Pian Benot and the cross-country skiing circuit of Piana di Usseglio, a picturesque basin dominated by the mountain group of the Torre d’Ovarda, the Lera and the Rocciamelone. The Nordic ski run is FISI approved and winds for 11 km through fantastic natural scenery, with 5 rings which offer courses suitable both for beginners and for expert skiers. It also has a modern equipment hire centre, a ski school and an artificial snow system. For those who wish to experience new excitement, a stretch of the track has been created for use with sled dogs and for skijoring, a fascinating discipline of Nordic origin which combines the cross-country skiing technique with pulling by one of two dogs harnessed to the skier: it is a collaborative sport which requires skill and an excellent relationship between the skier and the dog.
