Winter Storm in Alagna Valsesia

Winter Storm in Alagna Valsesia

During January 2021 Alagna was Buried in Snow. Some photos I captured of the winter scenes in Alagna Valsesia.

The New Year storm of January 2021 started just after New Years day and continued for a week thereafter.  Over one metre of snow fell in the village, being the biggest dump of snow at village level for around 14 years.  Roads in Valsesia were closed due to avalanche danger and much of the week was spent digging with whatever tools you had available.

In between daily digging sessions I managed to venture out and capture a some amazing photos of this rare winter event in Alagna Valsesia.  Everything looks better in the snow!


Snow was coming down thick, it was difficult to see the neighbours place.
There is a long path to the small hamlet where I live, this is my neighbour going about the daily snow clearing duty. We met daily on the path and followed a well practiced routine

There are many beautiful churches in Italy and indeed Alagna, which look even more fantastic in the snow. This is stunning little but prominant landmark is called Oratorio della Visitazione
We love going for a walk in the snow, the silence and beauty is mesmerising. My wife showing the way as per usual.
And again..
Via dei Walser - the 'high street' in Alagna. It would usually be bustling at this time of year being the holiday period and a load of fresh powder, however sadly it is almost deserted due to quarantine restrictions.

Almost everyone in Alagna was snow clearing in some capacity, though some clearly were better equipped than others.
