Hectares of white as far as your eyes can see, steep corridors, soft pow, wide corridors of powder snow … these are some of the elements that you will face during your descent into the Freeride Paradise of Alagna and Valsesia. The starting point par excellence is the glacier Indren, 3,000 meters above sea level on the border between the Gressoney Valley and Val Sesia. From this magical place an irresistible panorama opens up, which offers plenty of off-piste routes from medium to high difficulty. From Canale Rettilineo to Canale Dente Bors, from the Zube-Foric Canyon to Pass Civera, from Vallone d’Olen to Grand Couloir Stolemberg. There is always a new adventure and it’s always different for those who love an adrenaline rush and constantly on the lookout for the most authentic experience of freeride snowboarding, skiing or telemark.
