The Champoluc ski school/guide company does a free day of guided off-piste skiing each week, conditions permitting. So if you're staying in one of the hotels, check with the front desk about that. I think the ski school also does a free on-piste tour from Champoluc to Alagna as well.
That's one of the reasons I like the place: no crowds, free guides (for a day), what's not to like?
