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 favorite. 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.

Great hotel, great location lovely staff very friendly and helpful e.g. When I broke a tooth the manager fixed me an appointment the next morning with an excellent dentist. We've been skiing and traveling with you for years and the standard of accommodation and service are always excellent.

This a beautiful modern hotel suitable for both familes and couples, with its great ski in ski out access on to the Pralong piste. It is the highest hotel in Courchevel, and most of the rooms have south facing balconies so there are amazing views of the mountains.
Charlotte Carter (Staff)
The Annapurna is a family run hotel with a really warm home from home feel. For keen skiers, this hotel could not be in a better location. On leaving the boot room guests walk straight onto the Pralong Piste, an easy blue suitable for beginners. The terrace area is a great spot to people watch the skiers over a vin chaud. The hotel also features the only outdoor swimming pool in Courchevel, which children are welcome to enjoy too.
Jenny James (Staff)
The hotel has such a warm and friendly atmosphere, it is unpretentious and family run by the Pinturault family. The hotel has a lovely light indoor pool, an outdoor heated pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. Annapurna is located right at the top of the resort so it has spectacular views and it is in an ideal ski in/ ski out location, there is a complimentary driver service throughout the day and night so no walking is required! The food is honest French good food and there is also a children's menu available. I particularly like the fact that you can have dinner or lunch included in your half board so you can dine out in many restaurants and enjoy lunch in the hotel while watching the slopes in front of you. Overall it is a fantastic choice for families or couples.
Georgie Berghaeger (Staff)
