Yes, I know it’s June and I am talking also about winter sport and snow ecc…but we know well that in North Europe people start planning their holiday one year in advance, and this is a good habit you have guys.., therefore, before making up your mind about the location for your next holiday, you can’t miss reading this blog article!
Even for your summer holidays, Courmayeur is a great location.
Courmayeur is considered the Capital of the Alps. Despite being a small village, it’s grandeur is obviously due to its fantastic setting, the Mont Blanc. On the #Italian side of the Mont Blanc, the most challenging side to #climb , you will find everything to make the perfect holiday: you will find sport, food, tradition, shopping, well being, sight-seeing, all in a wonderful natural setting, high up in the #mountain .
#winter Skiing : Let’s talk about the novelty of last season, which will continue fully next season, and it is sking at the Arp which is the slope(s) overlooking the South face of his majesty the #Mont Blanc. The downhill of #Arp is about 700m and gives access to another black piste facing North. The high slopes are always beautifully covered with snow both at the beginning than at the end of the snowing season. The activities on the snow are many and are suitable to all levels of preparations. We have famous champions, skying in Courmayeur, as well as young children learing the first rules of #snowing with the help of the professionals at the #ski-schools . A really unique descent is, for example, the #Vallée Blanche crossing, which is very popular, This descent develops on the Mer of glace #glacier , starting from Punta #Helbronner (3466 mt ) to be reached by the #Skyway , an Italian cableway that is a real technology jewel, unique in its class, and skiing down arriving in #Chamonix (France). Of course, apart from this challenging proposals, there are slower sport options such as #snow-shoeing in #Val #Ferret or fat bikes and a lot more.
#Italianfood #food. Another plus of the Italian tourist area of the Mont Blanc is , last but not least, the #food experience! You cannot miss the delicious food and #haute-cuisine, expressed by local cooks using the local traditional products such as polenta with local #chees ( #Fontina ) , #carbonada, soups and of course, local #wine. The highest wine produced in Europe. The production is low in number but high in #quality of our white and red wine. Excellent quality.
#Shopping #fashion and #entertainment: The shining pedestrian street is called “Via Roma”. It is in the heart of Courmayeur, where you will find luxurious boutiques, technical sport equipment, handmade crafts, fashion, food & wine , trendy bars and clubs with beautiful people!…What else can we say, Courmayeur should not be told, it should be lived!!!
