Courchevel offers a great balance of high and medium altitude and predominantly north-facing slopes to offer excellent skiing throughout the winter. In December, huge capacity for artificial snowmaking and the connection to the Val Thorens valley make good skiing probable. Courchevel really comes into its own from January to March, typically seeing regular snowfalls. When it gets really cold, runs to the lower villages are bearable and come spring time, north-facing pitches hold up well.

Courchevel has a reputation as a place for rock stars and royalty but make no mistake, it is one of the world’s premier ski resorts with good reason. The skiing has breadth and depth that is unequalled. The extent of the Three Valleys combined with perfectly groomed runs, vertiginous off-piste couloirs, gentle runs at village level and much admired tree skiing mean Courchevel has lots for skiers of all standards.
If skiing is just a sideshow for you, the boutiques and art galleries will keep you occupied until it is lunchtime at one of Courchevel’s many fine restaurants. Most renowned eateries including Cap Horn, Chalet de Pierres, Bel Air and Soucoupe are accessible by road or by gondola.
Apart from skiing, the village has plenty to offer. We recommend a flight from the famous altiport or a cookery course with Michel Rochedy, the Michelin starred chef at Le Chabichou. The toboggan run to 1550 is another favourite. There is a farmers’ market on Wednesdays and the Forum is home to an Olympic ice rink, bowling alley, climbing wall and small gym. Paragliding, horse drawn carriage rides, forest walks, show-shoeing, cross-country skiing, ice karting and hot-air balloon rides are also possible.
Courchevel hosts special events including the International Pyrotechnic Festival, the most impressive fireworks display you will ever see, and ski-jumping competitions at the Olympic ski jump in Le Praz.

If you are looking for one of the most luxurious hotels in Alps then look no further. They have thought about everything at this hotel, the detail is incredible. Expect a true 5* service. Special gifts await guests booked into suites. Perfect for couples due to the oustanding spa, wondeful option for families due to interconnected room options and state of the art kids club.
Claire Medlock (Staff)
Barriere is without doubt one of the most luxurious hotels in 1850 - befitting it's Palace status. The rooms are styled in a classic Alpine style but with every detail carefully thought out with the guest in mind. The ski room is one of most beautiful I've seen with ski in ski out access onto the Bellecote piste. I loved the attention younger guests were given too, with personalised check-in and activities for them during their stay!
Après ski with a difference. If there's still some energy to burn off at the end of the day, the climbing wall at Courchevel 1850 is an entertaining option.
Drive a piste basher
A mountain experience that is quite possibly every child's (and adult's) dream when they see these being driven up and down the pistes.
Hot air ballooning
A serene and peaceful way to see the Alps, a hot air balloon ride will make your holiday truly memorable.
Ski with a champion
Do you want to ski like a champion? Well, now is your chance to train, workout and hone your skills as you learn from the best. Florence Masnada, two times Olympic medallist and World Championship medallist and 15 times Champion of France.
Skiing The Three Valleys
Being part of the three valleys means Courchevel has access to a vast area of pistes for your enjoyment, 600km of them to be exact.
Snowshoeing in Courchevel
Leave all the hustle and bustle of the slopes and the lift queues behind as you discover the tranquil, natural surroundings of the mountains on snowshoes. Using a private guide, discover the best snowshoe walks and access places skiers can't get to.
Once night has fallen and the skiers have deserted the slopes, you can still enjoy the thrill of shooting down a mountain with the wind in your face – on a sledge!
