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.

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.

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.

The Aquamotion is an impressive centre for indoor swimming, surfing, kids splash area and indoor climbing.

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.

For skiing, the location is perfect, you are ski in ski out on the easy blue Pralong piste. After skiing, Le Base Kamp offers the best in luxury aprs. The south facing terrace with panoramic mountain views is right on the slopes. The roaring firepit adds to the friendly atmosphere the best place to enjoy a drink or appetiser after skiing.

Bronwen May (Staff)

This recently renovated hotel is arguably one of the most impressive in Courchevel, with its modern Himilayan inspired dcor and endless facilities. From the well equipped children and teen rooms, to the relaxing spa and 2 Michelin Star restaurant 'Le Montgomerie'. It is the perfect place for both families and couples to explore the 3 valleys with its ski in / ski out location on to the Pralong slopes.
