People who head to Courmayeur in the weeks and months ahead will find that the resort is one of the friendliest in Europe and guaranteed to provide memorable ski weekends, it has been noted.

The winter sports advice site Info Barrel explained that Courmayeur is both sunny and cheerful and is a recommended destination for urban escapists or anyone who enjoys exciting ski holidays.

Standing at the front of the Aosta Valley, ten minutes from the southern end of the Mont Blanc tunnel, the medieval town was described as a "maze" of narrow alleys and flights of steps, all leading into the pedestrianised Via Roma.

"Look up and you are confronted by Mont Blanc's tangled icefalls; look around and you see men and women in matching furs strolling along cobbled streets. For those who like their winter sports with sophistication and a sense of history, there is no better place," the site said.

It is a haven for intermediate skiers, according to the source, which noted that there are great prospects either in the trees or on three classic runs from Cresta d'Arp - the Arp Vieille to Val Veny, the deserted valley to Dolonne or Pre St Didier or the Youla gorge to the resort of La Thuile.

The apres ski in the resort is also as impressive as the on-piste attractions, with the site noting that Courmayeur's mountain restaurants rank among the best in the Alps.

It explained: "The Aosta valley food chain is highly recommended in Courmayeur. Most meals begin with pork-led antipasti -usually ham and salami - followed by pasta and a meat dish, often steak or game."

The combination of thrilling runs, great weather, amazing sights and fantastic places to eat means that people heading on ski weekends in Courmayeur in the near future are unlikely to be disappointed, the source concluded.
