About The Resort
Courmayeur ski resort is one of Europe's great Alpine resorts, set in the impressively scenic upper end of northwest Italy's historic Aosta Valley, and centered on a charming old village full of character, with a local ski area best suited to leisurely intermediates.
Nestled at the foot of Monte Bianco (Mont Blanc), Courmayeur is a traditional Italian resort with bags of character and is surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery. The centre of the village is car-free with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars, and a lively après-ski scene. Like Chamonix, on the French side of Mont Blanc, Courmayeur is so much more than simply a ski resort - it's one of Europe's classic mountain towns, and receives many more visitors who are there for the sightseeing, the hiking and the mountaineering than it ever does skiers and snowboarders.
"A place where you can find all the happiness you're looking for". One hundred kilometers between on and off-piste. On the perfectly groomed slopes or down virgin snow chasing after the last snowfall, on skis or a snowboard, in the presence of the highest mountain in Europe. This is the Courmayeur ski area.
