Courmayeur 2013! X
I'm on my first skiing holiday, and i'm actually skiing, yey! X
Courmayeur is an extremely popular resort in the shadows of Mont Blanc. The resort is linked from the pretty town by one of Europe's largest gondolas. There are a lot of snow cannons that top up the lower slopes, which can become thin as everyone heads back to the gondola. Powder-hounds will revel in the upper slopes and lower down there are plenty of wooded areas for some superb tree-skiing. Despite its impressive surroundings, Courmayeur is not the most challenging resort but is certainly tamer than Chamonix. Off the slopes, the town of Courmayeur is pretty, very lively and its centre is car-free.
