The Aosta Valley and in particular Courmayeur is one of the best areas in the Alps for backcountry and freeride skiing.

The larch and pine forests scattered with boulders, tree trunks, snow drifts and branches become a playground for this original experience.

The instructors and guides from the Courmayeur Ski and Snowboard School will accompany you and use their years of experience skiing and snowboarding in the area to unveil a new world of freeriding, a whole world away from anything you have ever experienced before.Courmayeur, thank to its strategic position is a real mecca for freeride lovers.

Reasons are really simple:

  • From Courmayeur you have access to MonteBianco, the highest peak in Europe, 4810mt
  • In Courmayeur, there is a brand new cableway SKYWAY, that runs up the breathtaking glaciers of MontBlanc massif, where there are no groomed trails but only offpiste trails
