The famous Mont Blanc Tunnel is open, so skiing in Courmayeur, Italy is accessible once again. Your Mont-Blanc ski pass gives you access to all the ski areas in the Mont-Blanc region and Courmayeur, Italy, with over 700km of trails. For the non-skiers in our group, activities abound from snowmobiling, snowshoeing, sledding and day trips to places such as Annecy, Megeve, Geneva (Switzerland) and Aosta (Italy).
The famous “Vallee Blanche” ski run is an experience not to be missed. As you climb from 3,379 to 12,604 ft on the Aiguille du Midi cable car, you’ll admire the Massif and the Mont Blanc summit, the Bossons Glacier, the Aiguille Verte and the Drus. The 12-mile descent takes 4 to 6 hours, depending on skiing ability and length of photo stops. The glaciers, peaks and couloirs form a stupendous background to an unforgettable experience. Since this is an entirely off-piste run, a qualified high mountain guide is recommended. Non-skiers should ride the cable car to the top for some spectacular photo opportunities.
Our home for the week will be the centrally located First-class Hotel Prieuré. Our Saturday arrival will include a welcome drink and program presentation about our week in Chamonix with our hotel representative. The hotel features 81 rooms with restaurant, bar, open fireplace, lounge, sauna and Jacuzzi. The hotel is centrally located in Chamonix with bus service from the hotel to the various ski slopes.
All guest rooms have private bathroom, telephone, TV, mini bar and balcony. After a week in Chamonix we will transfer to Paris for 3 nights and 2 full days of exploring this beautiful city before returning home. Take this opportunity to see the “City of Light” with Eva Thomson who has made this her favorite destination and has been to Paris on over nine occasions.
