This vintage travel poster takes us to Italy's Valley d'Aosta, an area surrounded by the highest peaks in the Alps and synonymous with Courmayeur, one of the world's top ski resorts. Maga (Giuseppe Magagnoli), in his dramatic Art Deco style, shows us the snow covered peaks of Mont Blanc rising between the steep slopes of the valley floor. The stylized type-face is also noteworthy.

This is the English version of the poster published in 1931 by the Italian Government Tourist Board (ENIT).
Reference: Ottaviani 18, Art of Skiing p. 70
