Leading steadily up and northwards from Valle d'Aosta, the Gressoney Valley hosts the lovely Lys river flowing from the high glaciers on Lyskamm down in to the Aosta Valley. The high ski lifts from Stafal give swift access to the even higher glaciers and Gnifetti & Mantova Huts which, in turn, provide the launch pads for sorties in to this magnificent Italian side of the high Monte Rosa massif.
