Courmayeur Intermediate Skiing

It’s an intermediate’s mountain, for sure, laced with interestingly varied, genuine red runs. But it is small; the avid piste-basher will ski it in a day. There are some good long runs – it’s 700m vertical from Col Checrouit to Zerotta, and 1400m vertical from Cresta Youla to Dolonne – but they are few. On the steeper Val Veny side of the ridge there are challenges to be found – while the reds and blues cut across the mountain, a row of easy blacks go down more directly.

For the timid intermediate, on the other hand, the area is short of confidence-building blue runs. There is basically one long blue on each side of the ridge, reached from Plan Checrouit via the six-seater Pra Neyron chair; that on the Val Veny side is better for the challenge-averse. Many of the reds, particularly up around Col Checrouit, and down to Plan Checrouit, do have the merit that they are generally wide, which helps a lot.
Adventurous, fit intermediates can try the off-piste Vallée Blanche run to Chamonix, and the local heli-skiing.
