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.
The newly opened L'Apogée Courchevel has raised the bar for luxury hotels in Courchevel 1850, one of the world's very best ski resorts. With its superb ski in/ski out location, L'Apogée Courchevel is the ultimate choice for a luxurious ski retreat.

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.

This is a high-end hotel where nothing is too much trouble. There is a high staff to guest ratio and the guest doesn't need to lift a finger. Smooth and discreet service alongside delicious gourmet dining. The location is brilliant and having the ski valet to ensure your skis are placed on the slope ready to go makes getting out on to the slopes even easier.

Overlooking Courchevel, this hotel is stunning and perfectly finished from its personalised furniture to the gold taps in the bathrooms.

The choice of restaurants will spoil you with Le Comptoir de L'Apogee offering some of the worlds finest produce and French cuisine, as well as their newly opened Japanese restaurant, Koori. The childrens playroom is futuristic and fun offering a huge choice of activities. The ski butler will have your skis ready for you on the slopes in the morning so you can begin a fantastic day skiing and will meet you at the top of the magic carpet to relieve you from your skis and offer a hot chocolate to warm up!

L'Apoge is in a fantastic location, nestled amongst the trees just above the main hub of Courchevel 1850 in the Jardin Alpin area. On arrival you are immediately greeted by the warm and friendly staff - many of them come from the hotel's sister hotel - Chateau Saint-Martin in the Cote d'Azur. The design of the L'Apoge is very different from how you might expect a ski hotel to be. It is individual and tastefully decorated with a contemporary style. Bamford products in the bathrooms were a particular favourite aspect of the rooms!
The dining options available to guests are excellent, the selection of food for breakfast is vast, more than enough to keep you fuelled until lunch on the slopes. The bar has attentive staff who will make you any kind of cocktail or drink, the cucumber gin and tonics were particularly good!
The children's club at the L'Apoge is an amazing feature, rather than just putting on a DVD the staff will create a fun and educational experience, from perfume making to music writing. There are two rooms, one for older children and one for the younger guests which are both visually fantastic and stocked with amazing games, toys, books and beanbags.
As one of the largest aquatic centres in the Alps, Aquamotion offers swimming with flumes, indoor surfing, inflatables and a climbing wall as well as a fitness gym, spa and fitness classes such as yoga.
