Stolemberg to Gressoney Map

This run is one of the classics of the ski area. It requires some effort to walk up but you will be well rewarded by an amazing run, with a wide slope that can be skied very fast. Snow usually good in winter but during spring temperatures rise up very quickly and it could be dangerous to ski here. The run is quite easy to locate but pay attention- it is quite steep and exposed to avalanches! it has to be skied early in the morning and with safe snow conditions. Avoid this run in the afternoon or when temperatures are rising. Experienced skiers only!
