Gressonay consists of two parts, Trinite and St Jean, both of which have access to the Monterosa Ski area. St Jean is the more beautiful and bigger one of the two, but Trinite is a friendly little resort that has a lot of character.

Gressoney offers some of the best skiing in the Monterosa and the snow is quality quite reliable. There are a number of excellent runs for intermediates, and experts have some excellent off-pistes at Alagna. Beginners have a good choice of runs, but they are spread all over the area and may take some time to get to.
