One of the benefits of having the Mont Blanc Unlimited lift pass is the fact that you can ski in Italy at no extra charge, in the ski resort of Courmayeur. Nestled at the end of the Aosta Valley and just on the other side of the Mont Blanc Tunnel, Courmayeur is more than just a little bit special. With an atmosphere of easy-going friendliness, fantastic restaurants (you are in Italy after all!), wide sweeping pistes and awesome vistas of the massif, Courmayeur is a day out full of fun, good food and great skiing. See our recommendations for mountain restaurants.

Local tip

Being separated by Mont Blanc, the weather conditions in Courmayeur can be very different to Chamonix and it can therefore be a great alternative to skiing in Chamonix if the weather conditions aren’t great. Check out the weather forecast to plan ahead and pick a day to go through the tunnel to Courmayeur.
