  1. I have just read your report with horror! We leave to do the TMB in just under 2 weeks and with the current weather patterns am fearing plenty of rain for us too! Rifugio Elizabetta is fully booked so we have to do Les Chapieux to Courmayer in one day. Any tips?

    • Rosemary, try not to fret. We had non-stop rain on the TMB, but still enjoyed ourselves. It’s hard to feel like you’re missing all of the best views, but it’s still a beautiful walk. Like you, we walked from Les Chapieux to Courmayeur in one day. It’s along walk, but doable. When you reach Lac Combal, the TMB climbs up again before descending to Courmayeur. Skip this section and take the road downhill that will lead you directly to Courmayeur. This was listed as an alternate route in our Cicerone guide book, and we were glad to have it as the rain was falling pretty hard when we reached Lac Combal. It’s a very long day of hiking, especially when it’s raining. Happy trails!
