The Courmayeur Alpine skiing district is a favourite with skiers from all over the globe. For off-piste skiing, the downhill run on the Tuole glacier is exceptional as is the downhill run in the Vallée Blanche, which passes through the Mer de Glace glacier and leads to Chamonix, on the French side of Mont Blanc.

The Nordic skiing piste at Val Ferret is great fun and is also suitable for non-experts. Moreover, part of the piste is flanked by a pedestrian trail that allows those not skiing to immerse themselves deep into the Alpine natural world, just a few miles from Courmayeur.

The Courmayeur district is situated in the Aosta Valley (called the ‘Val d’Aosta’ in Italian) and has two sides to it: the Chècrouit side, which faces north-east and so is bathed in morning sunshine, and the Val Veny side, which faces north-west and is sun-drenched throughout the afternoon. For this reason, Courmayeur is known affectionately as the ‘sunny side’ of Mont Blanc – the 4810-metre summit that towers over everything here.

Did you know?

Courmayeur is the oldest ski resort in Italy, and lies at the foot of Europe’s highest mountain – Mont Blanc (4810 metres / 15,781 feet). With its 60+ miles of (always perfectly prepared) pistes, Courmayeur is perfect for all types of skiers and snowboarders.

Unbeatable In Courmayeur, the snow conditions are always excellent, even in periods of limited snowfall, thanks to the level of coverage, which exceeds 70% of the skiable surface area.

Not to be missed Referred to as the eighth wonder of the world by journalists and mountaineers, just a stone’s throw from Courmayeur – right on the Italian/French border – you will find a three-stage cable car run that is utterly breathtaking. In 20 minutes, the cable car takes you up 2000 metres from the base of the valley to Punta Helbronner, a magnificent, 360˚ panoramic terrace taking in the whole of the Alpine arc, encompassing everything from Mont Blanc to the Dente del Gigante (“Giant’s Tooth”), including Cervino (the Matterhorn), Monte Rosa (Mont Rose), the Gran Paradiso and the Grivola – an utterly idyllic landscape!
