Skiing Holidays in Courmayeur

Courmayeur is on the Italian side of Mont Blanc, over the Alps from Chamonix, in the Aosta Valley. It's a popular resort for a ski holiday especially for a short ski break or ski weekend as the airport transfers are short. Courmayeur possesses some of the traditional Alpine history of its French neighbour, but at considerably lower prices.
Courmayeur Ski Holidays: The Skiing
Courmayeur ski holidays give you reign of 100km of pistes, most of which cater mainly for intermediates. Courmayeur also offers access to the other resorts in the Aosta Valley and the Chamonix valley (via the Mont Blanc Tunnel), with a combined total of near 800km of runs to keep just about everyone happy. Cross-country skiers will also find 51km of excellent trails to keep them busy on their skiing holiday in Courmayeur. Courmayeur is blessed with a fine snow record and supported by widespread snowmaking facilities.

Courmayeur Ski Holidays: Off the Snow
With its proximity to Mont Blanc, the scenery you get on a skiing holiday in Courmayeur is majestic - the resort itself does its location proud. It's based around a traditional village, with a car-free centre (making it great for family ski holidays), loads of good shops, restaurants, cafés and bars, where the après-ski is very much Italian in spirit. Eating in Courmayeur, both on and off the mountain, is almost more important than the on-snow activities and the high quality of the eateries reflects that.

The only possible downsides to ski holidays in Courmayeur are the rather irritating walk from some of the accommodation to the lifts and the slight lack of variety when it comes to non-skiing activities. 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.
