Courchevel’s prestigious and opulent reputation is proceeded only by its standing as one of the worlds best ski resorts, forming part of one the largest linked ski areas in the world.

With run’s always immaculately groomed, Courchevel really looks after their slopes for your enjoyment. Above this area the terrain begins to steepen with skiing up to 2740m. Here you will find a plethora of red and black runs, like the well known ‘Le Grand Couloir,’ accessed by the Saulire cable-car and forming part of 3 differing chutes and mogul runs, challenging enough for the most advanced skiers. With the altitude gain visitors can also take-in the breath taking views above the peaks. Courchevel also has partly forested areas to ski in, head for Les Praz or La Tania to take cover, so if the weather does come in you won’t be driven back to your chalet.
Although Courchevel is not home to a freestyle scene as such, their own family park provides learners and intermediates a good place to grasp the basics and have some fun, it is best to head over to other Three Valleys resorts like Val Thorens, (easily reachable from Courchevel), for more challenging and varied parks if you want to go big on jumps and rails.

More Information about Courchevel
The resort of Courchevel can be better navigated when you understand its differing villages and heights.
Made up of 5 resorts in fact, scattered up the valley, each resort has something different on offer. The previously named Courchevel 1850 (and now more commonly know as just Courchevel) is the highest of them all, and where the glamour and 5 star hotels can be found (11 to be exact!). Courchevel Village (formerly Courchevel 1550) has a slightly more relaxed atmosphere than its luxurious counterpart, Courchevel Moriond (previously Courchevel 1650) Les Praz (1300) and St Bon (1100). Aside from the later, all the villages offer easy, direct access to the piste’s and with a good transport system in place, shuttle buses can connect you where needed. The lower laying villages offer more traditional charm versus the height of 1850’s glittering palaces, and all offer a wide variety of accommodation options including chalets, apartments and hotels.
Of course the most expensive resort is Courchevel itself with high-end designer retailers and top notch restaurants, this is where the rich and famous will congregate. But there are plenty of other more reasonably priced options in the surrounding villages, that have equally enjoyable atmospheres and will suit many, depending on the type of group you are travelling in and your tastes. In recent years further development to architecture has made apartment buildings significantly more attractive than many of the other purpose built resorts in the Three Valleys.
There is plenty to do in resort, Courchevel hosts a number of great events during the year such as the Pyro-techniques festival, set to shock and wow with its fireworks and fire throwing displays, or if you want something a little more refined then why not take a Michelin star cooking lesson? Or perhaps take a piste basher for a ride? Of course you can also partake in more low-key activities, especially if you are not a skier. Courchevel has fantastic indoor sports centres, music concerts, cinemas, and even helicopter rides on offer. Of course if that doesn’t interest you there is always the legendary Après Ski to get involved in!
