Alagna Valsesia is one of the best freeride resort in the Alps, but in the last years the Indrend cable car was not operating and the possibilities for freeride were limited. Last season they opened a new cable car from Salati to Indrend and now the playground for off-piste skiing it’s huge again (but I miss the old Balma lift!). So after a long period I skied in Alagna for three days and, if the snow was not the best (and the avalanche risk was high), was nice to repeat the long runs of Monte Rosa and meet many friends.
Here the pictures of Saturday, Sunday and Monday:
– bad visibility (and the Indrend cable car closed on the first day) going to la Balma
– Eagle couloir, (canale dell’Aquila), La Salza, La Malfatta
– climbing to Zube pass and descent in Otro valley
