Courmayeur Mont Blanc will be hosting the 7th Mountain Gourmet Ski Experience from 17 to 20 March 2022.

The event, which is being run in collaboration with Grand Hotel Royal & Golf, was created by Momentum Ski’s Amin Momen and celebrity UK chef Heston Blumenthal. It has built up a reputation for attracting top chefs and this season’s line-up includes Michelin star chefs Tom Kerridge, Paul Ainsworth and renowned local-chef Paolo Griffa.

Momentum Ski has again chosen Courmayeur to host the Mountain Gourmet Ski Experience because of its well-known foodie scene and beautiful alpine scenery.

This season’s event is to include a new dinner-only format, as well as a range of accommodation options, flights and transfers as available add-ons which will suit groups of friends, individuals and families.
