In quieter resorts like Gressoney and Pila, hotels put on huge multi-course feasts of the very best in alpine food, before hotels open up to let patron’s party into the night. Torch lit descents are the standard in every resort, and Champoluc usually has live bands as well as fireworks displays.
Courmayeur is known to put on a good party to see in the New Year - live DJs and bands playing in bars across the towns usually let you party into the night, and the car-free centres let you get home safely.
Cervinia and La Thuile often have extended multi-day celebrations. Concerts, theatre shows, live bands and DJs occupy the bars and hotels in the build up to the big event, with the fireworks and torchlight descents seeing in the New Year in-between the partying. If you’re looking something a little more contained, you can even host your own soiree if you’re staying in a chalet or apartment and want to keep things intimate with family and friends.
