Located right on the French border, Courmayeur in the Italian Aosta Valley is a superb resort for a ski weekend, with a good range of slopes to tackle for all ski-levels. For those staying longer, Courmayeur's proximity to Chamonix (it's just below the exit to the Mont Blanc Tunnel on the Italian side) and other resorts in the Aosta valley means there is huge variety for those staying longer.
A Courmayeur lift pass should give you access to just the right amount of pistes to keep you busy for a weekend, but if you're staying longer the Mont Blanc Unlimited Pass provides unlimited access to nearby Chamonix (France) and Verbier (Switzerland).
Visitors can also hop over to La Thuile by bus - it's just a 30-minute journey, plus it connects to the La Rosière resort in France - but you have to buy a separate ski pass for the day when you arrive.
To get an idea of which runs you'd like to try out, take a look at our Courmayeur piste maps below. You'll also spot a FATMAP which points out all the top backcountry routes in the region, plus a Google map of the resort itself highlighting all the best drinking, eating and shopping venues.
If you're keen to get to grips with Courmayeur's off-piste skiing opportunities, check out the FATMAP of the resort below. It's essentially a 3D map which crowdsources info on numerous off-piste routes as people ski them. The interactive Courmayeur ski map additionally shows snow conditions, safety levels and avalanche risk for any given trail.
Keen to map out a new route? As well as tracking your movements to share with future skiers, you'll also see live piste and lift statuses for marked runs within the resort itself.
