At Courmayeur-Mont Blanc there are slopes for absolutely every level of skier, from beginner to expert. Experts looking for a challenge will likely prefer Courmayeur’s off-piste offerings. However Val Veny’s moguled black runs will surely get anyone’s blood pumping. Courmayeur’s best off-piste routes are found off the top of the resort's chairlift network and can be explored in a clockwise loop from Arp Vieille to Val Veny, or skiers can head east from the summit to Dolonne or Pre-St. Didier, or south to the Youla gorge. An experienced backcountry guide is highly recommended for optimal safety and enjoyment. Intermediates will find plenty of wide-open red and blue runs to keep them occupied, especially in the Col Checrouit area. First-time skiers have a magic carpet and learning zone at the top of the Entreves tram. Cable cars, gondolas, chair lifts and poma lifts offer remarkable efficient connections to every part of the mountain.
Food & Wine on the slopesAmazing restaurants all over the mountain. Espresso bars and great wine lists and great apres ski. Steep runs, long lift lines during New Years week. Italians have no manners in line, pushing and shoving and will ski right over your skis. That took some getting use to and no one working the lift lines. Once up on the top it was great. No snow for the week but sunny everyday. No real grooming and with the sun it promotes icy conditions felt a lot like east coast skiing.
