Courmayeur is one of the most appreciated winter resorts of Valle D'Aosta. It rises at an altitude of 1224 metres above sea level just in the heart of Alta Valdigne, on the slopes of the impressive Mont Blanc mountain range. The Mont Blanc Pass connects Courmayeur with France and Switzerland,  thus making this winter centre an internationally renowned holiday destination.
Dolonne, which is separated from Courmayeur's city centre from the course of the river Dora Baltea, is a tiny village gathering plenty of sports facilities, such as the so-called Dolonnecable car, excellent tourist services and luxury accommodation facilities.

Courmayeur is part of Courmayeur Mont Blanc Funivie ski district, which is made up of 26 slopes and extends across over 100 kilometres, gathering thick woods and pinewood forests and offering sweeping views  of the surrounding valley. Mont Blanc Cableway and the ski-lift facilities of Dolonne and Entrèves (the latter being situated 2 kilometres far from the city centre, halfway between Val Ferret and Val Veny) lead to the main peaks of the surrounding area.

In winter,  Val Ferret, which extends just across the border with Switzerland, gathers skilled climbers looking for well-equipped mountain shelters and the lovers of cross-country skiing, the latter being attracted by the most renowned slopes of Valle d’Aosta. In summer, lush green meadows attract the lovers of walking, cycling and trekking flocking to well-equipped golf courses, riding grounds, charming streams and Alpine lakes where it is possible to perform sports fishing.
Val Veny, situated just across the border with France, is the main access to the slopes of Mont Blanc. Wild landscapes and impressive peaks, Brenva Glacier and the Sanctuary of Notre Dame de la Guérison, which has been a traditional pilgrimage destination for more than two centuries, contribute to give this valley utmost profusion.
A short distance from Courmayeur is Mount Chetif, which is topped by an outstanding Madonna statue which attracts large numbers of pilgrims.

Apart from exciting slopes and modern ski-lift facilities, expert skiers and snowboarders staying at  hotels in Courmayeur will have the possibility to experience off-piste skiing. The most famous itineraries depart from Youla and Arp Cableways.
The lovers of climbing will have the opportunity to enjoy a remarkably wide array of different footpaths. More than 100 routes provided with fixed ropes and iron steps lead to the top of Mont Blanc, which is situated at an altitude of 4810 metres above sea level. Among these, Via Normale iIaliana departs from Courmayeur and is to be covered in two days.
Sports lovers looking for off-piste skiing or hard trekking can rely to the largest association of Alpine guides in Italy, whose history is told by Duca degli Abruzzi Museum, which is hosted inside its ancient seat, just in the heart of Courmayeur's city centre.
