The real asset of Val Vény is its wild nature. This valley is still almost untouched by men. Few footprints of human activity are the altitude stop off points, such as Refugio Elisabetta Soldini Montanaro. The valley starts north-west of Courmayeur, a well-known and posh ski resort. It ends with the Col de la Seigne: This pass stands for the border between Italy and the French Tarentaise Valley.
