Coumayeur, Italy, I have a soft spot for this small ski area in the Italian Aosta Valley. It was the first place I visited in the Alps with Alpine Adventures out of Ft. Lauderdale back in 1997. What a great experience it was too, this small scenic area opposite Monte Bianco, visits to Chamonix, Valle Glace and over to Zermatt. I highly recommend the area and Alpine Adventures for folks interested in a great locale for mountain sports, great food and ambiance.

Chamonix, a marvelous place for things alpine with some excellent memories. Sharing half of the Mont Blanc Massif with Courmayeur, Italy, this place is a nexus for intense alpine happenings.

You can experience marvels of the Alps in three countries close to this area.

Its called Chimæra; which is a utopia. A dream or fantasy. Mythological, it references a fusion of forms that is the personification of winter. By slowing down our perception of reality we get a unique look at a skier's life. Just plug in your headphones and let your senses take over.
I could not find it on youtube so i decided to upload it myself so more people can see the beauty of skiing.
