Courmayeur: tips

Locals do

Locals don't

 

Get to Arp early and miss the queues for safer off-piste.

Vallée Blanche at weekends.

 

Eat hog roast at Petit Mont Blanc.

Checrouit on a warm afternoon - slush!

 

Ski at lunchtime when the mountain is practically empty.

Venture off-piste as much as you'd think.

 

Object strongly to the amount of trucks going through the Mont Blanc tunnel.

Mind having a friendly chat with strangers - it's a welcoming place.

Pros

Cons

 

Charming old village; car-free centre with stylish shops and bars

Very small area of pistes

 

Stunning views of Mont Blanc, which can be reached by a new (for 2015/16) rotating cable car

Lots of drawbacks for beginners

 

Some good off-piste and heli-skiing

No really tough pistes

 

Comprehensive snowmaking

No runs back to the village, only to Dolonne (where you catch a bus)
