Courmayeur needs little introduction to the keen skier and mountain enthusiast. Its superb location at the foot of Mont Blanc ensures wonderful skiing in spectacular scenery, and a holiday in this chic mountain town has plenty to offer the skier and non skier alike.
Courmayeur offers a good range of pisted runs, easily accessible off piste itineraries, fabulous cross country ski routes, superb mountain restaurants and a wide range of sporting and other leisure facilities.
It is easy to travel to the neighbouring ski resort of La Thuile using the local bus, and most lift passes will include a day of skiing there.
Courmayeur offers a wide range of accommodation options with some excellent hotels in the outlying historic hamlets of Dolonne and Entreves (both served by their own cable cars) and there are some fabulous restaurants, both on and off the piste.
