The ultra luxurious five star Le K2 Palace takes style to another level in Courchevel 1850. With its enviable Cospillot piste side location, mountain and valley views, and impressive contemporary Alpine architecture, it offers guests an exceptional ski experience. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal and the service is faultless. And with only 29 beautifully designed rooms, the hotel is perfect for couples, groups of friends and families.
The facilities at the K2 Palace are nothing short of fabulous. The two restaurants - Le Black Pyramid and the two-Michelin starred Le Kintessence serve innovative gourmet food, and both are complemented by an expertly created wine cellar. Bar 8611 is a place for cocktails and relaxing, whilst the Winston Klub cigar lounge is a perfect after dinner retreat. The hotel caters wonderfully for non-skiers too. There's the spacious Goji Spa, spread over two floors with one double and three single treatment rooms, and a hammam, using La Prairie products. The very well equipped fitness room is complete with a personal trainer for guests' use, and there's an indoor infinity pool overlooking the valley. Families with younger children love the playroom - there's a mini K2 mountain to climb with a bobsleigh slide back down, interactive games and films, whilst the Teens room has an interactive dance floor, recording studio and arcade games. The K2 also has a cinema room which can be taken over privately or even transformed into a nightclub or theater for a special event.
The service at the K2 Palace is efficient, warm and very personal. A concierge service operates 24 hours a day, and is on hand to help with any inquiry a guest may have. The hotel has its own ski boutique, where equipment may be bought or rented, and private lessons can also be arranged. And factoring in Le K2's driver service and Scott Dunn's nanny service, our guests staying here experience a truly pampered ski vacation.
The K2 features 29 rooms of exceptional luxury and quality. Stretching along the Cospillot slope, it gives guests an incomparable panorama of the valley and mountain massifs.

There is a choice of two restaurants, a bar and cigar lounge, and a cinema room which can be hired privately.

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.
Location & Directions
Courchevel 1850, France
K2 enjoys a very central location in Courchevel 1850, near the Croisette. The Cospillot lift is directly outside the hotel giving access to the entire Trois Vallées.
When to go
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.
