Courmayeur Ski Resort

When flying into GVA its located on the south side of the Mt Blanc tunnel it requires a 15 minute traverse through this impressive infrastructure to reach the lovely village of Courmayeur. If Courmayeur were to be judged purely on its pisted runs (largely intermediate and relatively short), the skiing is quite limited in comparison to some of its larger alpine neighbours, but the same cannot be said for its mountain restaurants. No other resort can boast the amazing statistic of having more mountain restaurants than ski lifts, with 23 eating places and 22 lifts. This not only sheds light on the Italian ski mentality, but is also one of the many reasons why Courmayeur qualifies as one of the best resorts in Europe.

The restaurants are not only plentiful, they represent everything that is great about eating in the Italian mountains: hot chocolate so thick that you have to finish it with a spoon, risottos with shavings of truffles, succulent fresh pasta, lavish spreads of home-made desserts and south-facing sun terraces full of Italians.

The local chest warming alpine shot known as bombadino is a must on wintery mornings. This delicious mixture of cognac, chocolate and a secret ingredient is highly addictive and will have you craving for some more Courmayuer. “LA BOMBA’ Pop along and see Jacamo up at the Maison Vielle for some legendary Aosta faire and dancing on tables until the small hours http://www.maisonvieille.com/
