Courmayeur, Italy, is located in the western end of the Valle D’Aosta on the border of France.
The old village is perched under beautiful Mt. Blanc (15,780 feet), the highest mountain in Europe. Courmayeur is a long time favorite of ours and clients ask to return year after year.
The locals are friendly, the skiing and snowfall abundant, and the nightlife lively. Because of its location, on the border of France and near Zermatt Switzerland, skiers have the opportunity to ski 3 different countries in one week!
Courmayeur is world famous for combining Italian and French ambiance and charm. The locals are multilingual in French, Italian, and English.
Skiers enjoy fresh pasta and the local red wine at the many cozy slope side restaurants.
Evenings are spent strolling the winding cobblestone streets, exploring the many shops, and relaxing in cafes and restaurants. Intermediate skiers appreciate the wide open slopes and beautiful vistas, while the Valee Blanche, an 11 mile glacier run starting in Italy and ending in Chamonix, France, is available for more advanced skiers.
