Ski Courmayeur

Another of those nearly-in-France ski resorts in Italy (just 12kms away from Chamonix on the other side of Mont Blanc) where the prices are Italian-reasonable and the atmosphere is charming. It's a resort that's refined, tasteful and beloved by Italians from Turin and Milan who like to promenade as well as ski, a little more upmarket than some other resorts in the country. It's surrounded by no fewer than 15 peaks of more than 4000 metres so if that's not spectacular, nothing is.

The main ski area is reached by one of Europe's biggest ever cable cars. Beginners can have such fun at Plan Chécrouit or Pas de Passal. Improvers and intermediates will have the time of their lives on the reds of Val Vény or the amazing Cresta Youla down to Dolonne. Advanced skiers can go from Entrèves up to Punta Helbronner and ski down the Toula glacier, take in some off-piste excitement with a guide, the World Cup Downhill and the International Run, or tackle the Vallée Blanche to Chamonix. The lift pass includes skiing in La Thuile as well, which you can reach on a free ski bus.

The terrain park caters for every level and has a fabulous over-sized airbag.

Après-ski Courmayeur

Courmayeur is a pretty village with cobbled streets, balancing perfectly its desire for tradition and, at the same time, appealing to a younger ski set with an active bar and café scene.

Meet up at the Roma, straight from the slopes or try the Caffé del Centro and the Cadran Solaire. There are pizzerias, places to sample fondue and raclette, and even a Michelin-starred restaurant for contemporary haute-cuisine in the Hotel Royal E Golf, if you're feeling flush. The J-Set club has the interesting combination of sushi and disco.

The town has two cinemas, or you could go swimming, ice-skating, bowling, paragliding, winter mountaineering, dog sledding, snowshoeing or hiking. That's enough to keep you smiling off the slopes!

It's captivating, it's comprehensive, it's Courmayeur! Let GetSkiing arrange a perfect holiday for you!

Gary's Little Gems

"Courmayeur is a traditional old mountaineering village that has retained much of its character, located at the foot of the spectacular Mt Blanc. The main ski area spreads out from the mid-mountain base at Plan Chécrouit, reached by cable car from the centre of town. The skiing is ideal for beginners and intermediates and the lift pass includes a day skiing in Chamonix which is well worth a visit."
