Valle d'Ayas - what a wonderful valley!! Everywhere you look in this valley there are opportunities to practice winter sports. Firstly, you can ski from Champoluc to Gressoney, and even go as far as Alagna along the 180 kilometres of pistes in the MonterosaSki area. The ski-lifts are within easy reach of Residence Bettaforca, in Frachey (about 700 metres from Residence Bettaforca) or Champoluc using the handy bus service that links Saint Jacques with the rest of the valley every half-hour.
