People heading on ski weekends to Courmayeur will not be disappointed by the breadth of slopes in the region, which provide a challenge to all skiers, it has been noted.

The resort's labyrinthine town and alleys are duplicated on the slopes, with twisting runs offering a true challenge to skiers of all abilities, noted the travel advice site

It notes that the slopes above Plan Checrouit are narrow and provide a test for improving intermediates, who will be satisfied with the network of predominantly red cruisers, though beginners will be best honing their skills on the nursery slope in the area before tackling it.

"A hardcore option is the three-stage cable-car from La Palud, on top of the village of Entreves, up to Punta Helbronner at 3,470m, which gives access to the famous Vallee Blanche run on the Chamonix side," the site suggested.

Another option is the challenging serac run down the Toula glacier, which starts out with a rope swing down an ice drop-off, the source noted.

Recently, Rob Freeman, the Daily Mail's travel correspondent, explained that Courmayeur can be classed an intermediate's paradise, as it bridges the gap perfectly between nursery and beginner slopes and challenging red and black runs.
