Monte Rosa / Alagna is superb place for off-piste skiing.
The profile is very varied and with small hiking/skinning
you can gain huge amounts of skiing. In my personal
opinion, its better than La Grave. Why? In La grave
the area of skiing isnt that huge, the profile is steepcouloir/almostflat/steepcouloir, and you inevidably end up at lifts L2 or L1, so theres not that variation that you have
in monte rosa area. And if you want steep chutes theres
plenty of that one too, from punta strolemberg, corno rosso or stralivo towards alagna. If you want high mountain hiking
go to pyramide vincent, or balmenhorn and ski towards
staffal. Hopefully this year the snow situation would be
little better than last year...
Good news is that it cant be any worse.
