Chamois

Chamois Ski Resort Italy

Chamois is a delightful, traditional ski resort sitting high above the Valle d'Aosta on the road to Cervinia. The Chamois ski lifts may be old and a tad slow, but if that is a problem, you have missed the point of visiting Chamois.

Chamois is Italy's only car free village and is linked to the rest of the world via a cable car from the town of Buisson. Its stunning location perched on a precipitous cliff above the valley is perfect on a sunny day for pleasant skiing, quiet contemplation, delicious food and a few tasty spritzers & negronis.
