- Grab your skis and take the Checrouit gondola to Col Checrouit, head to Plan de la Gabba for your first runs…wide, open, groomed and quiet. It's my favourite! An amazing start to any day!
Courmayeur is a traditional Italian resort full of character, and surrounded by spectacular scenery.

What the experts say
More About Courmayeur
About the resort
First developed around two ancient churches at the foot of Mont Blanc, the now large village of Courmayeur is steeped in history. While retaining plenty of charm, the resort is also well equipped for the modern visitor with shops, restaurants and bars galore. Here you can read a little more about its history, ambience and attractions, and how to access the slopes.
On the mountain
Courmayeur caters for all levels of skier, offering the most variety and scope to intermediates. However, beginners also have plenty of opportunities here, and experts will particularly love the off-piste terrain and heliskiing opportunities. Links to Chamonix enable skiers to venture further afield, and the numerous mountain restaurants on offer mean that stopping for a break is always a pleasure. Now that the new Skyway Monte Bianco cable car is open the link to Chamonix is not only quicker but also pretty spectacular.
