Courmayeur Mont Blanc

Back to Aosta Valley

Courmayeur is a traditional Italian resort full of character, steeped in history and famous for its authentic foodie culture and surrounded by spectacular scenery.

The ancient centre of the village with its cobbled streets is car-free with wonderful old buildings housing fabulous shops, restaurants and bars. It’s no surprise there’s a buzzing après-ski scene too.  

The village is located directly on the Italian side of iconic Mont Blanc, western Europe’s highest mountain and one of fourteen 4,000m+ mountain peaks visible from the village.

The mountain slopes are best for intermediate skiers, although experts love Courmayeur too for its heliskiing and off-piste opportunities including the world’s longest lift-served run, the Vallée Blanche.  The Courmayeur lift pass also covers Chamonix and Argentière ski areas.

Courmayeur Mont Blanc is almost as famous for its great food as it is for its great skiing and this winter it is welcoming back its culinary month, Peak of Taste, for a second series in March 2024. 

More than 10 culinary events will take place across the gastronomic resort, and Courmayeur is inviting guests to meet and eat at altitude with some of the most prolific chefs in the region.
