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 1850 is an exclusive resort with fantastic pistes for all abilities. The resort is very well connected to the entire 3 valleys ski area opening up 600km of well maintained slopes and a whole host of exciting opportunities and activities such as cross country skiing and paragliding.

The congenial lounge has alpine charm with a modern edge, and afternoon cakes and pastries are offered in front of the open fire. Relaxation facilities include a sauna, fitness room and massage treatments.
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.

In a superb location, two minutes walking distance from both town and the slopes. The light lounge area is great for families; with a huge fireplace and lots of separate sofa areas it is an ideal place for families to spend quality time together. The views from the restaurant are incredible; remember to request a table by the window so you can look out over Courchevel 1850 and the adjacent mountains!

A great hotel option right in the centre of the resort, the large, cosy, living room is great for relaxing with a hot chocolate after skiing next to the fire. The hotel is great for long weekend with a group of friends, or nice for families during the holidays, it is a hotel for everyone!
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.
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

Hot air ballooning
A serene and peaceful way to see the Alps, a hot air balloon ride will make your holiday truly memorable.
