The area takes its name from Monte Rosa as the heads of its three constituent valleys are located within the Monte Rosa massif. These valleys are the Val d'Ayas and the Lys Valley, located within the Aosta Valley, and the Valsesia in Piedmont.
The connections between the valleys are at the Bettaforca Pass (Ayas and Lys), and the Passo dei Salati (Lys and Valsesia). These connections are susceptible to closure in the case of high winds.
Since 2010, most of the lift system open in summer for mountain bikers and hikers. You can reach Frachey (Ayas), then Alagna and back within the same day using only the lifts.
There are approximately 180 km of ski slopes, from the most simple to the more technical, and 38 lifts that start at a minimum altitude of 1212 m above sea level and reach up to 3275 m s.l.m. at Indren Peak. The overall uplift capacity of the lift system is about 50,000 people per hour. The Valsesia part of the district is known for its many off-piste skiing and ski mountaineering.
