Champoluc after heavy snow last winter

Champoluc after heavy snow last winter.
Champoluc is a picturesque quiet village. As a resort, it focuses more on family vacations, but lovers of extreme sensations are among the regular guests. Champoluc is the center of the Monte Rosa ski area, which is unofficially called the “Italian Three Valleys”.
The ski area got its name in honor of the Monte Rosa massif, which dominates the surrounding landscape: Dufour peak reaches an altitude of 4634 meters. The three valleys of the skiing region connected by a single network of lifts - Alanya-Valsesia, Val de Ayas (Champoluc is located here) and Gressoney - provide fantastic opportunities for off-piste skiing.

Is there such a thing as too much snow? That week, when I arrived in Champoluc in the Italian province of Valle d’Aosta, it seemed to me that the whole village was buried under the snow. The trees looked like dense clouds of cotton candy, cars were hiding under huge snowdrifts, and it would take days to dig them out. The air itself sparkled with frost.
Every morning, a fresh set of hastily printed warning posters appeared on the walls of the Chalet Champoluc. “High avalanche hazard,” one said. “Do not enter the area near the church.”
You know, the situation will seem serious to anyone, even if going to church is a dangerous adventure.
Maybe we are on the verge of an era when winters will gradually disappear, but that was one of the rare weeks when life in the resort freezes due to heavy snowfall.

At first I was delighted because I had long dreamed of riding the famous freeride slopes of the Monte Rosa region. And the better the freeride, the deeper the powder.
I came with a group of old friends. We had our children with us, who, we hoped, would soon be able to hone their basic skiing skills in the friendly atmosphere of the resort’s ski school and would appreciate the 180-kilometer network of trails in the three valleys. But the snow ruined our plans: the school did not work, the increased avalanche hazard did not allow us to cross the slopes, and the connection with other resorts in the region - Gressoney and Alanya - was closed.

Ski: “PROS” and “CONS”

A limited number of open ski slopes led to large concentrations of people near the ski lifts and triggered an increase in accidents. The problem recurred in February – due to the high daytime temperatures and the lack of snow, most ski slopes again became bare. Snow cannons do not work on all the slopes.

Thus, planning a trip to Andorra in advance could lead to coming across bad skiing conditions.

The Principality does not have its own airport or railway station and you can only get to Andorra by bus or private transport. This means that, for example, from London, taking into account a two-hour flight, waiting for a bus and a four-hour journey to Andorra, takes a whole day.

At the same time, the price of a bus from Barcelona to Andorra is much higher compared to similar destinations within Europe due to the monopoly the Principality has on these routes. The price for a one-way ticket is almost 35 euros for 200 km, and, for example, the fares of the Spanish Alsa company to travel from Barcelona to Madrid (more than 600 km) is only 16 euros.

Andorra has faced a transport crisis in recent years. Only two roads connect it with the rest of the world: N145 leads from Spain and N22 from France. The road from France is a “serpentine”, it has not been modernized for many years, and therefore it is often blocked in winter even when there has only been a few centimetres of snow because of the danger of avalanches. Therefore, the French themselves often prefer to get to Andorra via Spain on the N145.

According to experts, the Andorran slopes are one of the best in the world for such events.

The low rate of VAT makes Andorra a European shopping centre.

With a universal skipass visitors have access to the slopes of both lift systems. Today VALLNORD encompasses an area of 67 slopes and has the capacity to hold 55,690 skiers per hour.

In terms of the upcoming Winter Olympics-2022, SKIMO could be on the list of Olympic disciplines, said the President of the Andorran Federation of Ski-Mountaineering, Jaume Esteve

The President of the Andorran Federation of - (Federació Andorrana de Muntanyisme), Jaume Esteve, told that in terms of the upcoming Winter Olympics-2022, (Ski-Mountaineering) could be on the list of Olympic disciplines.

“This year, Andorra once again held one of the stages of the ISMF World Cup Font Blanca , which in 2018 began in the Wanlong ski resort in China – now the candidate for hosting the Olympic Games in 2022. It should be noted that the International Ski Mountaineering Federation (ISMF) held the in China for the first time. The continued in Swiss Villars, then athletes from 13 countries arrived at the Vallnord ski resort in Andorra.

In addition, open competitions were held in Andorra on January 28, in Arinsal, where 117 athletes took part. There were vertical races held on two pistes: one with an incline of 730 m (men, women and young men) and the other 465 m (girls). Individual SKIMO races in Arcalis were cancelled due to strong winds and poor visibility the day before, on January 27.

The number of participants in open competitions this year proves that this sport is evolving, becoming more professional and more popular among highly-trained athletes. This is easy to explain – ski mountaineering gives you a great freedom – “with skis in your backpack” you can climb to any peak covered by snow, enjoy the beauty of landscapes far from civilization, and then with dizzying speed, descend.

For Andorra, holding such a competition is a matter of prestige. The organizing committee did a good job – for the first time in the history of the ISMF, a live broadcast of the vertical race was conducted both on Andorran television in Catalan and in English via the official ISMF website and social networks.
