Pistes, pizza and Montepulciano  

The pretty cobbled streets of Courmayeur, which sits at the tip of the Aosta valley, belie some epic off piste and superb skiing for all levels. Plan a corporate event in Courmayeur and you'll get a heady combination of Italian style and authentic mountain experiences – including skiing the amazing Tula glacier or the Vallée Blanche from the Italian side. Huge, wide pistes are great for beginners and intermediates while experts can go up high via the Youla lift. The views are amazing, with fleeting glimpses of Mont Blanc as you ski.

The skiing in Courmayeur is only a notch above the eating. Piste-side restaurants are superb and well priced. Be careful – lunch could take you all day as the sun drenched terraces and great wines often distract from the snow. Needless to say après and evening come with Italian flair making Courmayeur a brilliant choice for groups out to socialise and relax in a friendly atmosphere.
