New Alpine Experiences - Introducing The Ski Butler!

As the upcoming ski season nears, Courmayeur Mont Blanc has announced new winter experiences unique to The Aosta Valley.

Those seeking the long-overdue thrill of the alps can explore one of the most beautiful mountain ranges on the Italian side of the Mont Blanc and enjoy the ultimate winter break, equally suitable for the mountain lover and non-skier alike.

New personalised dining and luxury overnight stays will be available at the very foot of the Mont Blanc, with exclusive ski butlers, and adaptive skiing, on hand to make the resort accessible for every guest.
Ideal for any mountain enthusiast, Courmayeur Mont Blanc offers superb heliskiing, off-piste and cross-country skiing, as well as joy skating, fat biking, hiking, snow shoeing, climbing, cycling and much more.

A regular Eurostar runs from London to Chamonix Mont Blanc, with an average total journey of 20 hours, so it is now possible to embark on this journey by rail and avoid the stress of flying.

Meet your New Ski Butler
For those that miss skiing but not the holiday admin that comes along with it, a personal Ski Butler is now on hand to make this holiday completely stress free through one of the resort’s 5* hotels: Le Massif.

This exclusive alpine-concierge can organise ski passes, ski rental, lesson booking, and even a heli-skiing tour for those really looking to explore their limits. All ski equipment will be transported in advance to the hotel’s slopeside chalet, Plan Checroit, making this offer perfect for families with little ones or for those who simply want to get out the door and hit the slopes.

Alternative snow-style activities can also be arranged non-skiers ensuring they still receive ultimate VIP treatment.
