Courmayeur in the heart of Italy’s Aosta Valley is an Alpine municipality that is home to just under 3,000 year-round inhabitants. Situated at the foot of Mont Blanc, it is one of the highest altitude towns in Europe.
Historic and gastronomical resort
Courmayeur is renowned for its unrivalled cuisine and boasts no fewer than 20 restaurants offering varied Italian specialities to visitors. So why not take the opportunity to discover the area's rich gastronomy?
The ski area in Courmayeur comprises some 100 km of runs, with something to suit all ability levels. On one side of its mountain ridge location is Plan Chécrouit, a less busy area with wide pistes and few trees, whilst the Entrèves slope on the other side features pistes through the heart of the forest, which as a result are less sunny and visited by fewer tourists.
An ascent to the highest point in this ski area requires you to take two different cable cars, both built in the 1960s, and which do not necessarily serve the slopes. Fans of freeriding and freestyle should ride the cable car to Cresta d’Arp from where they must tackle an off-piste route before returning to the resort.
