People heading on ski weekends in Courchevel in the coming weeks will have a good chance of spotting a famous face, according to one source.

Henry Samuel, writing for the Daily Telegraph, said that Courchevel is regarded by many as the playground of the rich, because so many wealthy people spend their winters in the resort schussing and slaloming down the slopes and enjoying the apres ski facilities.

However, British winter sports fans still make up 50 per cent of the clientele that heads to the resort, he said, providing that people on all budgets can enjoy the area.

Another key attraction is the number of Michelin-starred restaurants in Courchevel which provide some of the finest dining on the continent, he said.

One famous face to visit Courchevel recently was popstar Christina Aguilera, who celebrated her 30th birthday in style last Saturday and Sunday by taking to the slopes for a ski weekend, the People reported.
