March in Alagna

Spring has finally come and Alagna is ready to reveal her highest territories and secrets.
It’s the beginning of the ski touring season: on the 5th of March Gnifetti Hut is going to open as well as Rifugio Mantova on the 23rd.
For the ones who’s dream is to overlook the glacier and his 4000m,  the Monterosa’s refuges are the place to be, reachable with  skins starting from Indren.
Ski can still be a part of the game with his “Firn” snow (soft on the top, hard at the bottom) loved by every free-rider.
Days start to get longer and you’ll have more time on your hand to discover the territory,
there are many trails to get started, one of the most remarkable is the one leading to Otro valley, where you can admire the ancient Walser houses.
A few steps away from this path, you’ll find the manganese mine, still used during the second World War.

The Sesia river that was in hibernation, awakes, with the start of the fishing season:
you can buy daily permit at the playground  in Ponte hamlet. (Il Baretto +39 328 9089493)

Walser’s museum opens every Thursday morning, Lorena will take you on a journey to the past, showing to you the 1628 house, discovring their way of living and the tradition.  (Booking is required  +39 347 1377404)

Even if you don’t ski, you can take the lifts up towards Pianalunga or Salati pass, where sun shines until 6p.m. and you will lose your sight overlooking the Po’ valley.
