Discover Courmayeur, Enjoying Italy at its peak

Located in Italy, between France and Switzerland, at the foothills of Mont Blanc, Courmayeur is a place of sincere hospitality tradition, capable of welcoming everybody with warmth, thanks to its sense of style which is 100% Italian.

Being located at high altitude, thanks to its climate, Courmayeur snow conditions are often the best in the West Alps. The summits form a barrier to the clouds, and even in the depths of winter the resort often boasts a beautiful bright blue sky as well as perfect powder.

For that reason, Courmayeur is a paradise for skiers: the location offers a magnificent view of the Mont Blanc range and a great variety of perfectly powdered slopes.

Courmayeur is particularly renowned for freeride, with its stunning scenery of 65 km of fabulous slopes, lovely blankets of powder, and an incomparable landscape.

Courmayeur is also the only resort under Mont Blanc, which offers the opportunity of heli-skiing, away from the crowds and the usual classic slopes, and all allows for the experience to connect with nature.

The bird's-eye view of Mont Blanc from the helicopter is stunning, an enchanted realm of snow and rock pinnacles. Once arrived to destination, you can finally enjoy your freeride moment, on the search for the “perfect line” in fresh powder.

After a day spent on the slopes, the après-ski aperitif is a social event that can’t be missed. Thanks to the Courmayeur cable car, which is open every night until midnight, skiers and non-skiers can spend the night in the bars and restaurants on the slopes, for a drink and a gourmet dinner, enjoying shows, music, and fun.

Courmayeur represents a unique example of excellence in the alpine region, not only in the restaurants of the town center, but also, and above all, in the many mountain huts and restaurants at high altitude boasting the most privileged vistas of one of the most stunning sceneries in Europe.
