Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Monte Rosa

Pre-Saint-Didier Thermal Baths
More of a complex than a spa as such, the Pré-Saint-Didier Thermal Baths offer more fabulous facilities and treatments than anywhere else on Monte Rosa.
Tako Ski Rental
Tako Ski Rental does what it says on the tin and rents super-stylish ski equipment to a chic clientele of slope surfers; the store also offers free overnight storage.
Snow-ga
Snow-ga is a new concept that involves practising yoga mid-mountain. Perfect for the highly-strung.
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.
Alpenstop Refuge
Alpenstop Refuge is one of Monte Rosa's newest places to eat, but that's not to say it's any less worthy of your custom; in fact, it's a must-eat with a sun-soaked terrace and a traditional menu that gets it right every time.
Caffe delle Guide
Caffe delle Guide is as hot as hotspots get; in-the-know crowds congregate here for excellent coffee and pastries, as well as piled-high plates of plasta.
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.
Casa Nostra
Olen
Olen offers a wide, open piste that would please even the most hardcore adrenaline junkies.
Andrea Enzio
Andrea Enzio certainly knows his way around Monte Rosa's mountains; born and raised here, you'll certainly be in safe hands.
Carlo Cugnetto
Monte Rosa-born Carlo Cugnetto is the resort's ultimate insider; together with a team of 10, he'll have you conquering these parts in no time.
Castello di Savoia
Marvel at medieval history at Castello di Savoia; it is here Queen Margherita looked out across the mountains.
Walser Museum & Ecomuseum
Culture vultures should head to the Walser Museum and Walser Ecomuseum, which provide an insight into the history surrounding Monte Rosa.
Café du Centre
Feeling weary? Head to Café du Centre in Champoluc, where you can refuel with cocktails and light bites. You'll be ready to hit the slopes again in no time.
Must-Have Stylish Ski Kit 2012/13
Caffe della Guide
Caffe della Guide may be small in size but it certainly packs a punch with a lively crowd of locals packing it out every night of the week.
