Skiing in Courmayeur and La Thuile - great powder, great food, fewer crowds, Italian feel. What’s not to like? In a typical off piste skiing week in the Chamonix area, a day in Courmayeur is a popular favourite with guests, so why not explore the area further and ski there for a week? The lifts on the Italian side of the Mont Blanc offer access to amazing off piste terrain.
Starting from the iconic and unforgettably rustic Youla and Arp cable cars, superb descents can be found in the Val Veny, Arp and Dolonne valleys. Tree skiing from the Gabba lift offers great terrain for all abilities. The new Skyway cable car can even whisk you unto 3500 meters in under 10mins, giving unrivalled and easy accesses the Thoula glacier and the world famous Vallee Blanche.
A visit to la Thuile gets us even further off the beaten track, with the possibility to descend into La Rosiere, on the French side of the Petit St. Bernard pass. The stunning views of the Mt. Blanc south face and the glacier expanse of the Rutor, never disappoints. With the Mt. Blanc Unlimited ski pass we can also quickly drive through the Mt. Blanc tunnel and access the terrain in Chamonix if the conditions are better there…
A stay in Courmayeur allows one access to many different restaurants, shops, bars and cafès lining the Via Roma - the pedestrian street in the village. A fireside apperitivo in the café de la Poste after a great day skiing, or a trip to the relaxing thermal baths in Pre St. Didier, Courmayeur certainly has it all - che bella!
