A week at the foot of Mont Blanc
Winter is one of the most spectacular seasons: immaculate ice laces capture the morning light, shining dew drips in the sun, darkness shrouds the evening sky. A holiday at the foot of Mont Blanc is absolutely thrilling. Many sports are available: heliski, La Toula downhill run accompanied by the Courmayeur alpine guides, alpine skiing (the cable car is within a stone’s throw of the hotel) and nordic skiing in Val Ferret; snowboard, ice climbing, or simply a night excursion with snowshoes absorbed in an almost surreal stillness. It is always fascinating to reach Punta Helbronner via the Mont Blanc cable car and enjoy a breathtaking view of the Alps as well as visiting the crystal museum.
