Courmayeur Resort Info

Courmayeur skiing

Courmayeur, Italian neighbour to big boy Chamonix, has 100km of its own pistes, most of which cater mainly for intermediates. Advanced skiers need not panic however, as Courmayeur offers access to the all of the other resorts in the Aosta and Chamonix valleys (via the Mont Blanc Tunnel), which have a combined total of near 800km of runs. Cross-country skiers will also find 51km of excellent trails.

Courmayeur ski resort

With its views of Mont Blanc, the scenery in Courmayeur is majestic. A traditional alpine village with a car-free centre, Coumayeur has plenty of good shops, cafés and bars, where the après-ski is very much Italian in spirit. Restaurants, both on and off the mountain are top class and not overpriced. The only downside is the walk from some of the accommodation to the lifts. Courmayeur can also get swamped by the Milanese at weekends and peak season times. It's a great venue, only occasionally marred by the closure of the tunnel.

Snow Overview - Italy  (snow news updated 04-Dec-2017)

Loads of fresh snow has fallen upon our featured Italian resorts this week. Thursday 27th April was a day of limited access powder skiing in Val Senales (0/110cm) and Livigno (83/115cm). Both resorts received between 35 and 45cm of fresh snow in the past 12 hours and well over half a metre in the past 24 hours. With limited options to ski below 2500 metres it is worth noting the currently very high avalanche risk further up the mountain. Conditions on snow are excellent, however, the prevailing weather is still offering very poor visibility and at time strong winds gusts. Current cloudy/stormy weather seems set to continue into the weekend, although the heavy snowfalls should start to taper off over the next 24 hours. The weekend should offer a chance to score some excellent last season lift accessed powder.

European Weather Outlook

Across the central European Alps, snow and cold temperatures are forecast to stick around until Saturday. Accumulations of snow on the upper slopes could be huge for the time of year, with some Swiss resorts predicting around 80cm over the course of today and Friday. By the weekend the snow is predicted to subside in many regions and a mixture of sun and cloud is expected for much of Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland. In the Pyrenees, Saturday should be the pick of the day for any skiing in Andorra. Our featured resorts are now closed for the season, but for anyone strapping on their skins, you can expect a mixture of sun and cloud, with temperatures around +3C In Germany, 44cm of fresh snow is being forecast for Garmisch (0/380cm), who will be in disbelief at the moment for all the snow they have received of late. Further north you can expect temperatures of around -3C and snow showers in Norway, which are set to continue right through to Sunday for resorts such Trysil. Across the border in Sweden, the weather should be fairly similar, but any snow that does fall is likely to be light and bring only 1-2cm. Despite some recent biting temperatures and cold winds in the UK, any snow that does fall on the Scottish mountains is most likely to be on Thursday. Thereafter, rain could destroy any hopes of some late season turns.
