Skiing in Courchevel

Country: France

In a nutshell: A glitzy ski resort at the end of the enormous 3 Valleys ski area

We like:

  • Some of the best skiing in the enormous 3 valleys ski area. A genuine ski paradise for skiers of all abilities
  • The range of resort bases offer something for everyone – it’s not just the oligarch’s playground of 1850
  • With it’s mainly North facing slopes, Courchevel often has some of the best snow in the 3 Valleys
  • Good skiing above and below the tree line, so there is still good skiing when the weather closes in

We don’t like:

  • Limited options for those on a budget. Courchevel 1850 is very expensive, as are most mountain restaurants
  • The resort bases are fairly unremarkable, even uber-luxe Courchevel 1850
  • Poor terrain parks so limited options for freestyle skiers and boarders

RESORT DESCRIPTION

Courchevel is an upmarket ski resort in France’s epic 3 Valleys ski area. The skiing is absolutely fantastic, with Courchevel having what is regarded as the best skiing in this world-beating ski area. There is a huge range of slopes with terrific beginners slopes, seemingly endless red and blue cruisers for intermediates and plenty of challenges both on and off piste for advanced skiers. All this is topped of with a fantastic lift network that quickly takes skiers and boarders through the enormous area.

Courchevel isn’t just one resort, it’s actually four: Courchevel La Praz (1350) which is was and still is an old rustic village; Courchevel Village (1550) which is more a collection of chalets than an proper resort; Courchevel Moriond (1650) which has a huge watersport centre, an attractive centre and lots of shops bars and restaurants; and the world famous Courchevel 1850, which is visited by wealthy Russians, Parisians, celebrities and pretty much anyone who wants to be seen in this uber-luxe (and uber-expensive resort).

Courchevel Moriond (1650) will be best suited to most people as there is plenty going on in the resort, has more affordable prices and a good selection of blue and green runs for beginners. 1850 has the best location for skiing is suited to those who want five-star luxury.
