Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Monte Rosa

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.
Heli-skiing
Paragliding
Need a new perspective on things? Try a spot of paragliding, which will enable you to get a bird's-eye-view of the slopes and beyond.
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.
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.
Ice-climbing
Fearless adrenaline junkies use whatever means necessary to climb sheer, shiny walls of ice; only the brave need apply.
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.
Olen
Olen offers a wide, open piste that would please even the most hardcore adrenaline junkies.
Castello di Savoia
Marvel at medieval history at Castello di Savoia; it is here Queen Margherita looked out across the mountains.
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.
Snow-ga
Snow-ga is a new concept that involves practising yoga mid-mountain. Perfect for the highly-strung.
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.
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.
