The Courchevel Valley is part of the world-famous ‘Trois Vallées’ and lies at the eastern end of this enormous ski area which has the largest number of kilometres of linked pistes on earth (600km)!
With many seasons’ experience of living and working in the valley of Courchevel, we’re familiar with the local area and know our way around the winding snowy roads as well as having a good relationship with hotels, chalet companies and private accommodation. We also able to recommend our favourite bars and restaurants as well as well-being and spa venues in the valley – do feel free to ask!
The Courchevel Villages
The resort of Courchevel is made up of 6 smaller villages and each has its own distinct personality. What they each share is easy access to the unrivalled skiing that Courchevel has to offer: the chalets, hotels and apartments are generally very close to the slopes and lift system.
The villages that make up this celebrated resort are called Courchevel Saint Bon, Le Praz, La Tania, Courchevel Village, Moriond and Courchevel itself which lies at 1850m altitude.
Skiing in Courchevel
The high percentage of North-facing slopes means that the snow lasts longer, making Courchevel a snow-sure resort which has a long season from early December until late April. Courchevel 1850 has some exciting steep skiing for experts as well as long greens and blues and a great Family Park which is great for children and anyone that enjoys the odd jump! There is also a big air bag where you can practice tricks in the safety of landing on a huge cushion of air.
Heading down into the lower resorts means that you can enjoy a good long descent and ski all the way from the top of La Saulire at 2700m down to Courchevel Village at 1550m or through the forest into Courchevel Le Praz at 1300m.
Over in Courchevel Moriond, the lifts are quiet and the slopes are gentle, making it a lovely place for intermediates to enjoy the wide blue runs. La Tania is also great for intermediates – try the blue Folyeres with its lovely rollers and trees, or the long and winding green slope that brings you back to the gondola.
It’s easy to access the rest of the Three Valleys via Courchevel La Saulire or the Col de la Loze which is above La Tania.
The valley of Courchevel offers a free bus service which runs between all of the villages mentioned above. Click here for a bus timetable
