Alagna Mountaineering: Ski guides of Monterosa
In the second half of the nineteenth century, the birth of mountaineering in the Alps profoundly modified Alagna and Riva: mountain huts were built in high altitudes and hotels were built in the lower valley, thereby changing the appearance of the two urban areas. The people who have always lived here realized this was an opportunity and thus developed new professions: porters and guides.
The Guide Corps of Alagna Monterosa, was founded in 1872 with the sponsorship of the CAI section of Varallo. It is the second largest in Italy after the founding of the Guide Corps in Courmayeur and is now composed of over 40 ski guides. Since 1989, the year in which the work of a Mountain Guide was legally recognized, they have been operating with professionalism both on the mountains in Italy as well as abroad.
Mountain guides of Alagna (all IFMGA qualified) are the specialists of Alagna’s free ride area. The free ride with us is to surf the mountain on ski in harmony with the terrain. We use wide-shaped skis that allow us to surf over the powder snow rather than submarine through it. The sensation of floating at high speed is hard to beat as you glide with large sweeping turns off-piste. We’ll explore the terrain and develop your technique so you’ll excel thanks to your skills and never look back! Rely on the mountain guides to find the most exciting heliskiing of the Monte Rosa and discover, with people born on these mountains, the vastness of the area still not reached by the slopes.
