Monterosa 2000 S.p.A has spent last moths completing its investments on the 2020-2021 winter season. The speech of the head Luciano Zanetta.

We’re working to let you live soon your extraordinary days in Valsesia!

Dears,

During the last summer season and the first weeks of autumn we made significant investments, to improve the experience on the snow in Valsesia. We are ready to welcome you again, to make you live in safety the emotions that we have always given to you, to show you the result of the continuous improvement work that distinguishes our Company.

In Alagna we have built a new artificial lake, paying particular attention to inserting the work into the surrounding natural environment. It will allow us to reduce the snow-making times of the slopes by about 30%. In addition to the realization of the new projects, we proceeded with the twenty-year general overhaul of the Alagna-Pianalunga gondola lift and the Bocchetta chairlift. It means the complete adaptation of the control systems of the lift and of the electronic and mechanical components, to constantly ensure their use in complete safety.

Moreover we have enhanced the network of LED screens on the Alagna slopes, with three new gate-screens at the access of the lifts Funifor, Cimalegna chairlift and Bocchetta chairlift.

At Alpe di Mera, on the other hand, we will be able to count on 30 new snow machines and an additional section of the line on the snowmaking system. This will allow to increase the coverage of the skiable area and decrease the snow production times. To improve the usability of the area, there will also be a new underpass, 42 meters long and dedicated to pedestrians and snowmobiles, which will allow them to cross the Primavera track underground.

A new Fun Slope will be built in area Campo, nearby the skilift. Right next, you’ll find the new playground we’ve built for this summer, still available on snow, and a bobsleigh track. Both will be protected and with free access. With the aim of connecting this fun park, but also other areas of Alpe di Mera, we will propose a new shuttle service, which will allow pedestrians, beginners and anyone to cover some routes.

In both locations the online ticketing system allows you to buy any type of ticket, Monterosa Ski, Monterosa Freerideparadise or Valsesia, by reloading a card or choosing to pickup at the automatic cash machine. Those who do not wish to ski but still want to go up to Alpe di Mera, can use the smartphone as a real passepartout, as gates on the way can read the QR from the e-commerce receipt. And a new automatic vending machine will be soon located in Scopello, with the function of purchasing or collecting a ski pass.

We have scheduled the start of the season for next 4th December and we are working to ensure that everything is ready for you.

While we work, we promise to update you, waiting for the green light from the Italian Authorities!

See you soon!

Monterosa 2000 S.p.A.
