Courmayeur

Emerge from the Mont Blanc tunnel into Courmayeur, a traditional Italian resort, steeped in history, full of character and surrounded by the most beautiful scenery.There’s something for everyone both on the mountain and down in the town. The perfect ski resort with a touch of Italian chic.

Courmayeur is perhaps the best known of the Aosta Valley’s winter resorts, and with good reason. Nestled at the foot of Mont Blanc, it enjoys a spectacular location.The old village has a delightfully traditional atmosphere, and its narrow cobbled streets and piazzas are home to chic boutiques, delicious patisseries and a wide choice of restaurants, pizzerias and bars. In the mountains above the village there are over 100 kilometres of exciting, varied runs. The Baby Bowl provides a safe haven for beginners, whilst the open runs, mogul fields and outstanding back country skiing tempt the more advanced. 6 day lift passes include the option to ski two days in another Aosta Valley resort. You can even arrange to ski the awesome Vallée Blanche over the shoulder of Mont Blanc down to Chamonix. Throw in a great choice of mountain restaurants, perfect for a relaxing lunch, and maybe a hot chocolate or two, and you have a truly fantastic resort.

During winter, skiing is without doubt the main draw to the Aosta Valley. An area so culturally and geographically diverse obviously has much more to offer to keep visitors occupied.

Maybe you have someone travelling with you who doesn’t ski or perhaps you just fancy a change for a day? Whatever the reason, here are a few suggestions that might help you fill a spare couple of hours, an afternoon or even a whole day. There’s always plenty to do in the Aosta Valley!
