Courmayeur

Ski resorts in Italy
The old, picturesque Italian village of Courmayeur is located at the bottom of Mont Blanc. Approximately 3,000 people reside here and they are all adrenaline junkies. With unlimited off-piste skiing, great restaurants and a nightlife beyond the usual, Courmayeur is very popular.

It should be said right away that Courmayeur has a different "climate" than the French side of Mont Blanc by Chamonix. The snow may not always be as good as on the French side, but in exchange you will be guaranteed more sun than if you were in Chamonix. In addition to skiing, Courmayeur is famous for its climbing and attracts many world climbers to the mountains. Something that you should try out yourself if you are in Courmayeur.

The proximity to both Geneva and Turin airport makes Courmayeur the perfect weekend getaway if you can't find the time to go away for an entire week.
