Inside the Cristallo you will find loads of charm and personality with ruustic stone floors, walls panelled with carved wood and hung with pictures of local history. Antique furniture and the use of deep colours give the bar and lounge a feeling of warmth and elegance. In the dining room the convivial atmophere continues, with large tables for dining with friends - or, if you prefer, a table for two.
For relaxation after an energetic day on the mountain, relax in the hotel's sauna on the ground floor.
Just a short taxi or bus ride 3kms from Courmayeur at Prè Saint Didier, is a fantastic spa and wellbeing centre. There are hydrotherapy baths, 3 outdoor heated pools with some of the best views of the mountains, tranquil treatment rooms and hot tubs and saunas. Why not take the afternoon off from the slopes and enjoy some holiday indulgement with the ultimate relaxation.
Ski hosting is available 5 days of the week. There are two ski hosting groups for you to join, each split according to level of ability and speed. You can join the group for leisurely or intermediate to advanced skiers for half of the day or the whole day, or switch groups whenever you wish. It's up to you.
Ski hosting groups meet after breakfast at 9am and all groups stop for lunch at the same restaurant, giving you the chance to catch up with friends, family and fellow guests. Choose to continue in the afternoon with the group or take time out to do your own thing. At the end of the day our hosts will accompany you back to the hotel for a well deserved cup of tea.
Our hosts are advanced skiers and know the resort intimately, but they are not instructors or accredited mountain guides. If you are a beginner the we can assist you in arranging lessons with the local ski school.
For those looking to ski off-piste, we recommend booking a day with Gianni Carbone, a qualified mountain guide with many years experiece. In addition to off-piste skiing, Gianni can arrange ski mountaineering , ice climbing and heli-skiing.
Intermediate skiers and more advanced can enjoy a variety of off-piste terrain, including the famous Vallée Blance from Courmayeur into the Chamonix Valley. The route starts at Punta Helbronner, followed by a scenic and leisurely 4-5 hour descent before the bus ride back to Italy. Alternatively you can explore the wide slopes, high fir woods and powdery snow of Val Veny or discover the Toula Glacier.
Gianni visits the chalethotel Cristallo at the start of your holiday to discuss his services and any questions that you might have.
