Les Bodochys, the Courmayeur folklore group

With their dashing clothes and their dances, folklore group “Les Bodochys” are iconic figures in Courmayeur Mont Blanc, custodians of its most authentic tradition.

Courmayeur Mont Blanc’s folklore group Les Badochys keep Courmayeur’s cultural traditions alive with their time-honoured dances and music.

Whenever the community holds an important event, Les Bodochys are there to entertain with their music and folk dances.

The group was formed in 1956 by a group of friends who got together to carry on the traditions and old dances of Courmayeur Mont Blanc. Traditional parades always line up behind “Le Badoche“, a sort of halberd and emblem of Courmayeur.
