Best tips for Courmayeur / Chécrouit - Val Veny
Courmayeur is a great place for a short midweek break or for a day trip to escape bad weather in Megève and Chamonix – we have used it for this several times. Excellent restaurants both on and off the mountain plus village bars among the most civilized in the skiing world are important factors for us too. The piste skiing is tricky to recommend for more than a day or two, though, because it best suits competent intermediates, who are likely to have an appetite for mileage that Courmayeur will arouse but not satisfy. Courmayeur is a traditional old mountaineering village that has retained much of its character. La Thuile is an easy drive or bus ride away; Aosta/Pila and Chamonix are not far, and Cervinia and Monterosa are reachable; all are covered by various lift passes.
- Charming old village; car-free centre with stylish shops and bars
- Stunning views of Mont Blanc, which can be reached by a new (for 2015/16) rotating cable car
- Some good off-piste and heli-skiing
- Comprehensive snowmaking
- Very small area of pistes
- Lots of drawbacks for beginners
- No really tough pistes
- No runs back to the village, only to Dolonne (where you catch a bus)
