Grand opening of the Monterosa ski and Weissmatten ski domaines in Gressoney next 26 Nov. Gressoney St. Jean is also a haven for cross country skiers with 25 km of trails often only a few metres from the door of one’s accommodation. Very nearby is also the separate ski area of Weismatten which offers excellent downhill skiing on down hill courses used by the Canadian Olympic ski team during the Turin Winter Olympics, the European female Cup on January '10 and back next December and World Military Games. It was nominated as Italy's best ski run in 2009.

Founded in the 13th century Gressoney St. Jean is an elegant village with a sophisticated atmosphere, centred around the old cobbled square with beautifully restored original architecture. The parish church of San Giovanni rebuilt in 1725 on the foundations of the 16th century church. The village is steeped in tradition and is a centre of the old art of wood carving. The Savoy castle, once the summer residence of Queen Margherita is truly remarkable and worth a visit.

Gressoney St. Jean is an excellent location for families and skiers who like to stay in a genuinely historical and charming village enjoying traditional architecture and accommodation. There are excellent ski bus links to all the major lifts and it has a fine selection of local restaurants serving traditional culinary delights, typical dishes of the Aosta Valley.

Come and plan your ski holiday in Gressoney, one of the most beautiful location for off piste skiing, where powder is perfect for free riders and not only.

With the winter season ahead it is time to plan a ski holiday or a festive stroll through the European Christmas markets…sipping hot chocolate or mulled wine, next to the fireplace in your private Alpine rustic chalet, or sampling hot chestnuts, grilled sausages and gingerbread biscuits…Get into the jolly winter spirit and browse through thousands of holiday homes scattered around the world!

A friend just turned me onto a pretty good ski vacation discount site There's a catch and that is they promise things like free days of lodging and skiing (pay for three, get the fourth free) but U see nothing about free days of skiing on the site. You have to call the #. 888-337-6678

I'm with you, Evelyn: in my next life I' ll ski like that. Meanwhile I can dream about it. Still, not sure about the cliff thing. Unless I want to fast-forward to the next incarnation...!!

Thanks for the clarification, Evelyn; this was indeed out of bounds, big time. FYI, a year or so later, Matt blew out his knee. No longer able to be a ski bum (and a rapper) at such a high level, he taught English in India for a year and is now a medical student. I guess ski injuries really do change lives.

Holy caca! I thought I could ski! Great show, Ed!
