Airbnb creates ultimate sleepover for ski fans nestled on slopes of Mont Blanc

Airbnb has partnered with Europe’s highest cable car station to create the ultimate sleepover for ski lovers with jaw dropping views of the slopes.

Two lucky guests will have the opportunity to sleep in Europe’s highest listing, the Mont Blanc mountain range, for one night’s unique stay.

Hosted by Olympic medallist and Ski World Cup winner, Federica Brignone, guests will sleep in style at 3,500 metres high in a designer-filled room nestled in the mountain, complete with panoramic views of the snow-capped Italian Alps.

The futuristic Punta Helbronner cable car station has been transformed for the sleepover, giving unprecedented access to guests who will sleep in the ‘Mont Blanc room’ – a spectacular space with a floor-to-ceiling window, offering views of the snow-capped Alps, including Monte Rosa, the Matterhorn, the Gran Paradiso and the Grand Combin.

The experience will include the exclusive opportunity for the two skiers to ski down the slopes of Mont Blanc before the season officially begins and a special dinner at “Tavolo dell’infinito” at Punta Helbronner cable car station.

Federica Brignone said: “As a sports professional, I’ve often had the chance to ski on the Courmayeur slopes all to myself with the spectacular panorama of Mont Blanc right behind me. It’s an incredible experience that excites me every time, and I’m delighted that two travellers can now experience these same mountains in such a unique and exclusive way thanks to Airbnb.”

Bookings for the once-in-a-lifetime stay open at 9m on November 23 at http://www.airbnb.com/montblanc, with the stay taking place on November 27.

The cost of the stay is 190 euros excluding taxes, which will be donated to the “Save the Glacier” project to adopt an alpine cherry tree. Guests will have to organise and pay for their own air travel to the resort.
