You’re starting to plan your pre-holiday vacation. Ski towns are fun. Aspen, with all its glorious panoramas and luxury resorts, seems like a solid choice for a destination…right? My advice: skip the corporate sponsor vibes and overpriced burger bars, and head, instead, to Courmayeur, Italy. Never heard of it? That’s okay. Courmayeur is northern Italy’s best-kept secret: a small, adorable cobblestone-laden town where you can eat well, ski with a view, and feel like a fancy, in-the-know European.
