Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Monte Rosa

Canale dell’Aquila and Eagle Couloir
Gently does it, as they say, and that's certainly the case at Canale dell'Aquila and Eagle Couloir; both offer relaxed, gentle off-piste descents.
Weissmatten
While it may not be connected to the main lift system, Weissmatten still provides seasoned skiers with exciting runs; they're even better when the snow is thick.
Jolanda
While the routes at Jolanda may not be the trickiest in Monte Rosa, they are by no means boring; use these when bad weather prohibits you from being more daring.
Passo Zube
Skiers may need to climb to reach Passo Zube, but by God it's worth it; a 1,700-metre vertical ascent awaits at the top. Those who dare win, as they say.
Canalino Pilone
At just four-metres wide, Canalino Pilone requires the technique of a seasoned guide to safely navigate. Be sure to wise up before you tackle it.
La Balma
La Balma meanders through some of the most picturesque scenery in Alagna, but that's not to say it's any way slow-paced.
Malfatta and Punta Vittoria
If you're looking for steep slopes, call off the search; Malfatta and Punta Vittoria offer some of the steepest in Monte Rosa, and require supreme skill to safely navigate them.
Olen
Olen offers a wide, open piste that would please even the most hardcore adrenaline junkies.
Walser Museum & Ecomuseum
Culture vultures should head to the Walser Museum and Walser Ecomuseum, which provide an insight into the history surrounding Monte Rosa.
