We provide a personal service and draw upon our knowledge of the area and relation-ships we have with local people and their companies to give you fantastic experiences in the outdoor natural mountain environment. Offering opportunities to being active and aware in nature, whatever the season, we aim to create experiences which have positive benefits in physical, mental and spiritual health and well being.
Moving through the mountains with companionship, your time with us will often feel like a journey, more than just the physical activity. We value bringing groups of like minded people together, sharing the collective aspirations and being guided by teachers who are experienced in their field and some, world renowned.
In the winter we offer ski tours of the Monterosa, Mindful Skiing, Off Piste back country skiing and Ski Touring.
In the summer and autumn, we host Retreats which include hiking, yoga, meditation, Tai Chi & Chi Kung and mindfulness teaching.
Monterosa Ski is in the heart of the Alps sharing a border with Switzerland and is surrounded by 18 peaks over 4000 metres. The scenery is stunning. Lift access to back country skiing is second to none, there are literally acres of mountain for off piste. Closer to the village the slopes and restaurants cater for early skiers and those requiring some gentle encouragement. Of course, being Italy, the mountain people are friendly and welcoming.
Visit Monterosa operate all year round and help us source many amazing remote mountain Refuges which we visit during our Retreats. The area is well known for mountain Refuges and with stunning scenery of the snow capped peaks, even in the summer, this area really is a perfect venue for spending time for yourself on Retreat rejuvenating and renewing your energies.
The small quaint mountain village of Champoluc with a first-class Spa Centre, many Hotels of all stars and wonderful restaurants provides us with the many comforts of traditional, local Italian mountain life.
I look forward to welcoming you to the Monterosa.
