Here is the Courmayeur Ski Area, the sunny side of Mont Blanc: 18 lift facilities, with 11 blue, 17 red and 5 black slopes
In Courmayeur they’ve been skiing on the Plan Checrouit slopes since the 1940s.
Between 1941 and 1945 the first wheeled sledway was constructed, going from Plan Checrouit up to Colle Checrouit.
In 1952 the Courmayeur-Plan Checrouit cableway was completed, followed several years later by the Youla cableway and other facilities on the Val Veny side, bringing us to the present day.
SKIING IN COURMAYEUR
There are 100 kilometres, between the slopes and off-piste areas, in which to have fun and ski either by yourself or in company.
Perfectly-beaten slopes, but also descents that haven’t been touched since the last snowfall, await you so you can give your best on either skis or snowboard.
Starting from the town at an altitude of 1,200 meters, you arrive at the Youla crest at 2,624 meters. Historic facilities merge with new additions, allowing you to explore a world that brings together the open vistas of the Checrouit’s slopes and the woods of the Val Veny.
