News and other resort information
CHAMOIS is the highest municipality in Aosta Valley at an altitude of 1,800 m asl. In winter it can only be reached by cable car from Buisson (in Antey Saint André) and owes its fame to this very fact. No cars, complete silence, life that revolves around a warm fireplace and a good book; the charm of Chamois is in these simple things. It is the perfect alternative to the typical resorts, no coincidence therefore that it is known as the “Pearl of the Alps” (very few locations in Italy can boast this title). Chamois is truly beautiful with its old wood and stone houses of once upon a time: only the ski system with its modern facilities, the skiers with their bright colours and the lift systems (three two-seater chairlifts for a total of 12 runs) remind us that Chamois has also entered the third millennium. This “Pearl of the Alps” resort is valued by its guests for the nature of the village, appreciated by those in search of something different from what is normally offered in winter in mountain resorts. Your holiday in Chamois is perfect for snowshoe excursions (the nearby Lod Lake is a great option for all levels) and enjoying sunsets over the valley; a spectacle of light and shadows created by the sun that slowly disappears behind the Grandes Murailles mountain range.
In the Cervino Valley, a few miles from the historical main town of Valtournenche, stands Chamois (1815m), village that cannot be reached by car. The only connection to this valley is, in fact, by cable car (p/h 400) departing from Buisson,a hamlet of Antey-St-André. The trip is short and spectacular and you arrive quickly at the ski area of Chamois. 16 Km of piste (14 of which are covered by snow cannons), particularly suitable for little skiers and beginners.
5 Lifts, managed by the Cervino S.P.A., have an hourly capacity of 4125 persons and allow access to excellent off piste routes. The pistes are between 1800 and 2500 metres altitude.
