It is possible to practice cross-country skiing in the Ayas and Brusson areas where the World Cup Ski Championships of December 13th 1995 were held. This year the cross-country skiing world championships are still in Valle d'Aosta on 16 and 17 February 2019. Even in summer you can ski on the glaciers of Monte Rosa.
In the summer it is also possible to go horse riding or mountain biking among the easiest paths and trekking and mountaineering at high altitude for those who want to do something more challenging; there are also areas where canoeing and rafting can be done.
We can organize summer trips along the ancient canals like the Ru d'Arlaz or the Il Ru Courtod. The Ru Courtod takes water from the Rosa's glacier to take it after a good 25 km to Saint Vincent. The peasants continued their work during the summer with regularity for forty years, until 1433, the date of the ratification of the imprisonment by Count François de Challant. Nonostatnte the length of his dislivelo is minimal and the path is also suitable for children.
Did you know that in the Valle d'Aosta region of francophone culture a German-speaking community lives? They are the Walser. We can organize with you a journey to discover the ancient German people Walser who in the XIII emigrated from the Rhone on the high pastures of the Ayas valley founding the villages of Frantzè, Soussun, Resy and Saint Jacques des Allemand. the passage of goods between the southern and northern slopes of Monte Rosa at the time was so thick that the territory occupied by the Walser was called, by the Swiss Vallese, Krämerthal, "Valley of the Merchants", almost the Walsers practiced only the trade. The Walser were fine soapstone carvers from which they made pots, containers for seeds and even stoves. They also carved the wood from which apart from agricultural tools such as rastelli, they produced sideboards, furniture and even the famous clogs very similar to the Dutch ones, though less rounded and made with heavier wood.
You can visit the ancient gold mines of Chamusia in Brusson, The Chamousira mine Fenilliaz is the most important gold mine in the Valle d'Aosta. The discovery of this mine dates back to 1899 and its history therefore accompanies the modern era of metallurgy in Valle d'Aosta.
The mine has an underground extension of about one thousand six hundred meters and had a complex of external installations for the transportation and treatment of the ore. Today the Chamousira Mine Museum is the only museum with an underground visit to the Valle d'Aosta.
