Boasting first-class slopes, luxury shopping and Michelin starred restaurants; Courchevel is one of France’s most renowned ski resorts. As part of the Three Valleys, skiers have access to the largest ski area in the world with over 600km of pistes to discover, the large variety of slopes making this resort the perfect choice for both experts and beginners alike. The perfectly groomed slopes, snow topped forests and high altitude all add to Courchevel’s unique charm.
Courchevel has an exceptional range of runs for all ability levels. Courchevel Moriond is the perfect spot for intermediate skiers with its famous rolling red and blue runs such as Grandes Bosses. Beginners also have many slopes to choose from, a large majority of which are north-facing meaning great snow conditions throughout the day. Once you’ve found your feet you can start cruising the blues and reds in the snow-covered forest. Advanced skiers will love the more challenging terrain higher up the valley with electrifying black runs, couloirs and impressive off-piste skiing. Don’t forget the epic Creux blue piste, which descends from the resort’s highest point.
Courchevel offers much more than premium ski terrain with its excellent variety of winter activities. To ease any aches and pains after a day on the slopes you can head to the Aquamotion centre for steam rooms, saunas, Jacuzzis as well as indoor and outdoor pools. Children and adults alike will love the wild rivers, wave surf zone and water slides.
