Italy! On the other side of the Mont-Blanc range (25 minutes by car through the Mont-Blanc tunnel), Courmayeur ski resort welcomes you. It’s not only a different country but also a different atmosphere. Courmayeur is a compendium of the Italian art of living. A quality ski area with many off-piste, varied restaurants on the slopes and a panoramic view of Mont Blanc.Here, we can enjoy a perfect ristretto, which often means Grappa too!

Skiing or snowboarding surrounded by the highest mountains in Europe. This is the Courmayeur area, the sunny side of Mont Blanc. Freeriding spots. The snowmaking covers more than 70% of the area, guaranteeing, for the whole season, the chance to discover, have fun and to test yourselves. Because here, we cultivate your happiness.
DAY 3: MEGEVE (FRANCE)
Megeve is one of world’s iconic ski destinations. Created by a Baroness of the famous Rothschild family a century ago as a French equivalent to St Moritz, it has always been synonymous with the best of everything. Unlike most well-known French ski areas, Megeve was founded upon an original village that dates back to the 13th century and, with its cobbled streets surrounded by enticing restaurants and boutiques. Megeve’s local ski slopes are divided into 4 main areas: Le Mont d’Arbois, Rochebrune, Côte 2000 and Le Jaillet. Megève is part of the Evasion Mont-Blanc ski area. Added together the lengths of runs total nearly 450 km – one of the world’s biggest areas and plenty to keep you entertained for a week, or even a season. This vast amount of terrains means that there’s something for all standards of skier, but regular recreational skiers will particularly enjoy the huge amount of easy, cruising, blue and red slopes which in many cases are attractively located on tree-lined slopes and offer magnificent views as you descend.
DAY 4: VERBIER (SWITZERLAND)
Linked to the 4 Vallées, Verbier forms part of Switzerland’s largest ski area with 410km of pistes. With activities such as ski touring, heli-skiing, and freeride on world-renowned marked routes, the ski area lacks for nothing. The summit of the domain (Mont-Fort) culminates at 3330 meters and offers a multitude of skiing possibilities.
DAY 5: CHAMONIX (FRANCE)
This last day, we are back in Chamonix to ski Les Grands-Montets. Located in Argentière, 3 miles from Chamonix center, the Grands Montets area enables you to ski the greatest height losses in the world in the heart of the mountains, close to a glacier. The slopes are spread over three areas - the Argentiere glacier, Lognan and the Pendant which also offer magnificent off-piste, known throughout the world and essential for good skiers and freeriders. The quality of the snow coverage is remarkable up until May. For freestyle enthusiasts, a snowpark and a boardercross are open in the Lognan area.
