Snowboarding in Courmayeur
Courmayeur is renowned as a destination for the perfect ‘snowboarding long-weekend’, so make the most of just a few short days by hiring an instructor or off-piste guide. We’d recommend that you either hire a guide or, if you’re a confident boarder, an off-piste instructor and explore Courmayeur’s backcountry, which is excellent! For example, the run down the Italian side’s Toula glacier (catching the new lift from Entrèves all the way up to Punta Helbronner), and everything on the Mont Blanc side of the resort! There’s plenty of tree-lined off piste, and fun powder to be found just off the side of the pistes too.
Why not treat your group to heliskiing?! It’s popular in the resort and you’ll head to Val Veny where the conditions are great. Courmayeur’s terrain is mostly very steep, so an instructor or guide with detailed local knowledge will be invaluable. Powder-hounds and gentle piste-cruisers alike will appreciate the peace and quiet skiing in Courmayeur on weekdays, but our top tip is to at least hire an instructor or guide at the weekends (well in advance because they get booked up) – they’ll show you where best to avoid the crowds. Simply let us know what kind of guiding or lessons would suit you and your group in Courmayeur.
We promote independent snowboard instructors and guides, or boutique ski schools and guiding agencies over the larger organisations. This is because we think you’re more likely to get access to the most highly-qualified instructors and guides, with more experience and passion for their job, and therefore a better experience - simple!
We work with snowboard instructors who agree that the best approach is to tailor lessons to your skill level, experience and aims: whether you want to enjoy a week of family snowboarding lessons, charge the steep stuff off piste, or just get down from a mountain lunch in one piece!
Let us know what you need, and one of our team will do all the work to find your ideal snowboard instructor or mountain guide.
