Gressoney La Trinitè is the last residential area at the top of the Valley, which the Lys creek passes through. The village is located at an altitude of 1627 meters, in a flat area dominated by the majestic Lyskamm glacier. During the Middle Ages, this area belonged to the bishops of Sion and was populated by shepherds, who had previously passed through the territory of Valais. It is for this reason that such shepherds are known under the name of Walser.
Gressoney La Trinitè is an internationally renowned Alpine resort: it is very well-equipped and is very popular for Alpine climbing as well as for the practice of winter sports. It is part of the Monte Rosa ski district, which is one of the most extended (thanks to its ski runs, which are 150 kilometers long) and most suggestive in Europe.
In Gressoney La Trinitè (where you can also find a beautiful cross-country skiing trail), the ski lifts reach Passo dei Soldati (3000 meters), on the border with Piemonte, and Punta Indre (3275 meters). Stafal gives you access to some of the most exciting off piste and ski mountaineering slopes, which reach Punta Gnifetti (Monte Rosa, 4459 meters) and the Regina Margherita Hut, namely the highest refuge in Europe.
