Ski Holiday in Courmayeur
Lovely and leisurely. With great snow, varied terrain, fabulous scenery and plenty of time for lunch, Courmayeur takes a very Italian approach to skiing. It has an excellent snow record, backed up with a very impressive snow-making system and a very efficient lift system, including a new gondola and a fast four man chairlift. The ski area has a varied selection of easy and intermediate runs liberally sprinkled with welcoming huts, each with its own panoramic sundeck and spectacular view.
At the top of the cable car is the nursery area for beginners. For stronger skiers the possibilities are endless, with famous off-piste runs such as the Vallee Blanche into Chamonix, the Toula Glacier in the shadow of Mont Blanc and access to some of the best value heli-skiing in Europe (with a mountain guide). The Vallee Blanche descent into Chamonix is outstanding and one that you'll never forget.
Our Chalet Hotel in Courmayeur
The Chalet Hotel Cristallo is tucked away in a quiet side street just off the main Via Roma which runs through the heart of the village. It’s only a five minute walk from the hotel to the main cable car lift and to make life even easier for you, there are ski lockers available by the cable car entrance, so you don’t even have to carry your ski gear with you.
This 27-roomed hotel is child free for most of the season and during school holidays; children aged 7 years and upwards are welcome. However no childcare is provided.Charm is the order of the day inside the hotel, with its beamed ceilings, whitewashed walls and antique furniture. The rich, honey-coloured wood panelled bedrooms are gorgeously comfortable and all are ensuite with a bath or shower and WC.
