Courmayeur

Overview

Nature and snow at the foot of Mont Blanc

The municipality of Courmayeur is best known for its breath-taking views and endless array of ski slopes. But this Alpine resort at the foot of Mont Blanc in the Aosta Valley has surprises in store for visitors all year round, not only for trekking and sports enthusiasts. In the summer months, you can enjoy outdoor activities in the nearby Val Ferret and Val Veny. Family-friendly cultural events and concerts are also organised. 

In winter, Courmayeur bursts into life: thanks to the Skyway Monte Bianco cable car, you can reach Pointe Helbronner (3,466 metres above sea level) and admire the 360-degree panoramic views from the circular terrace. The resort remains a skier’s paradise, with a total of 100 kilometres of slopes and off-piste terrain. The most famous include the Courmayeur Internazionale, Gigante and Youla slopes. 

At the heart of the town centre is the historic and renowned Via Roma, brimming with shops and places to shelter from the winter cold while sipping a delicious aperitif. Among the narrow streets, overlooked by mountain-style houses, time seems to stand still.
Also worth visiting is the Saussurea Alpine Botanical Garden, Europe’s highest alpine garden, home to a wide variety of plants from around the world.
