Courmayeur: Gondola

Lively old village beside busy Mont Blanc tunnel road; modest but varied ski area -- and access to Mont Blanc massif.

Courmayeur is a great place for a short midweek break or for a day trip to escape bad weather in Megève and Chamonix - we have used it for this several times. Excellent restaurants both on and off the mountain plus village bars among the most civilized in the skiing world are important factors for us too.

The piste skiing is tricky to recommend for more than a day or two, though, because it best suits competent intermediates, who are likely to have an appetite for mileage that Courmayeur will arouse but not satisfy.



Courmayeur is a traditional old mountaineering village that has retained much of its character.

La Thuile is an easy drive or bus ride away; Aosta/Pila and Chamonix are not far, and Cervinia and Monterosa are reachable; all are covered by various lift passes.
