For sports, Courmayeur is undoubtedly one of the most suitable locations in the whole of the Aosta Valley. You can do almost everything, except some types of sports that require special equipment and, of course, the typical sports of the seaside.
As a mountain resort, it may be useful to distinguish between summer sports, winter sports and sports that can be practiced all year round.
The Courmayeur side of Mont Blanc has been called “The Sunny Side”, due to the fact that it is sunnier than the French one. This fact makes it perfect for enjoying all major summer sports. In particular, those related to the mountains and nature, such as hiking, mountaineering, sport climbing, mountain running, cycling, mountain biking.
But Courmayeur also offers incredible opportunities for other less common summer sports or those that require special conditions, such as horse riding, rafting on the rapids of the Dora, canoeing and canyoning, sport fishing, paragliding, hang gliding and, above all, golf.
The Courmayeur area is subject to excellent snow cover. This makes it ideal for all types of winter sports. Of course, downhill skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing are the masters.
The morphology of the territory, consisting of a main valley with two large side valleys (Val Ferret and Val Veny), determines a great variety of terrains and ideal conditions for other winter sports, such as ski mountaineering, hiking with snowshoes, the ascent of the ice falls and sleddog (dog sledding).
Sports practicable all year round
The opening of the Courmayeur Sport Center has opened up great possibilities. Inside, special spaces are set up, which allow you to practice many kinds of sports all year round.
To be mentioned are the rink for ice skating, ice hockey and curling. Indoor tennis and squash courts. The basketball and soccer fields. The climbing wall and the gym rooms. And then the swimming pool and the mini golf fields.
