Route description:

The ski area of Courmayeur covers a large area of terrain in the shadow of Mont Blanc. It really is a ski area for everyone, featuring friendly blue pistes right through to long off piste runs and steep couloirs.

Most of the skiing is above 1700m and the season is reliable. Much of the terrain is north facing, and it's possible to find good soft snow to ski many days after the last snowfall. For those skiing in Chamonix for a few days, a weeks ski pass will get you a free day in Courmayeur, so it's well worth coming through the tunnel

. As well as the excellent skiing, it being Italy, there are numerous excellent restaurants and places to stop for Italian food and coffee! As well as the lift to lift off piste runs there are many itinerary runs that involve a small ski or boot pack, which adds to the adventure and keeps the crowds away!

There is a lot of skiing to be done at Courmayeur whatever your level and combined with the stunning views and excellent food you'll join us in describing it as one of your favourite ski resorts.

Last lift accessed ski tour of (my) season from Contamines yesterday.

Plenty of folk out enjoying the good conditions on the classics.

A weeks holiday away from the mountains now. Rest time before the @trofeomezzalama race at the end of the month.

A big couple of days on the wild Miage glacier taking advantage of the great spring ski touring conditions.

Up Mont Tondu and then today over the Miage after a night in the Conscrits refuge. Which served a vegetarian meal to the whole hut last night, meaning it’s now my favourite refuge. 🌱

Over 3500m of ascent and some very good snow on the way down.

Well the express Haute Route didn’t exactly go to Plan. A meter of fresh snow at altitude put paid to that.

We headed south and spent a great couple of days around the Mont Thabor area. Nice hut, quiet and loads of good skiing. Despite the cloud.
