Description

The newly branded Le K2 Altitude (previously the Kilimandjaro) comprises nine chalets arranged around a central lodge, all built in traditional stone and wood and decorated with alpine memorabilia. The hotel has recently been renovated and its 32 rooms and suites were redesigned by Thomas Capezzone and the family's teams to create living spaces ranging from 27m2 to 85m2, as well as one large 140m2 suite. Its luxurious rooms, some with open fireplaces, are lavishly furnished with Italian tiled bathrooms and arranged around a central courtyard with magnificent views of the surrounding mountains.

Arranged in a 'village hamlet' design, the chalets are connected via an underground area and surround the central hub of the spa, swimming pool and lounge-bar.

At the Michelin-starred restaurant Le Montgomerie, guests can enjoy exquisite fine dining and superb attentive service accompanied by a rich selection of vintage wines from the wine cellar sourced from the finest vineyards. The hotel features a cosy bar and lounge serving fine champagnes, rare spirits and daring cocktails, a 3- level spa with swimming pool and jacuzzi, cinema, large fitness suite, salon and barbers.

For a more intimate vacation you may wish to take over one of the 8 lodging chalets in its entirety where your own personal chef can prepare dinner for your party.

During school vacations the K2 Altitude provides special programs for children such as mini car racing in the garage, sledge night-races, magic lessons, boat races and aquatic games at the swimming pool.

Activities

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

Piste side location. Nearest lift is Pralong chair. 25 minute walk to the town center.

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.
