Adventure on Italy’s Highest Commune
Located in northern Italy at the foot of Mont Blanc, Courmayeur is the highest commune in Italy and is among the most famous ski locations in Europe. It is perfect for skiers of all ability levels. Beginners can take advantage of moving carpet lifts and Ski School lessons. Intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders looking for adventure on the European slopes have a variety of well-groomed on and off-pistes to choose from. Thrill-seekers can even try heli-skiing while visiting Courmayeur.

There are 21 lifts, 8 blue runs, 17 red runs, and 4 black runs. Courmayeur’s ski season starts in mid-December and ends in mid-April.
