FAQs: Heliskiing and Catskiing in Courmayeur

What should I know about Heliskiing and Catskiing Courmayeur?

Located at the foot of Mont Blanc (a.k.a Monte Bianco), the charming resort town of Courmayeur is one of the Alps’ main winter sports centers. Although ski conditions may not always be as good as Chamonix (located just 22 km away on the French side of Mont Blanc), Courmayeur receives a lot more sunshine and is famous for it fun apres-ski scene and lively nightlife. The ski area is not as large as others in Europe (41 square-kilometers) but Courmayeur compensates with great off-piste skiing terrain. The Skyway Monte Bianco, a 3-stage cable car, will get you to Punta Helbronner, the closest you can get to the Mont Blanc summit in public transport. From here, you can access Chamonix Vallee Blanche.
