Full review

Coumayeur is a fairly small resort, with amazing views of Mont Blanc and a great variety of runs. It is suited best for intermediates (red runners) as there are only a couple of Blue Runs and a couple of Black Runs. Everywhere is very friendly and welcoming and when I have been (mid December for the last 3 years) it has always been very quiet...
The only couple of downsides are that it is pretty small, so you could ski the whole mountain in 3 or 4 days, and that I personnally like a snow park, although not everyone would so it may not be a negative!! Off-piste is fairly limited as well.
Overall, though, a fantastic resort and highly recommended.
