Wine buckets on the slopes


Courchevel is known for both the quality and variety of après ski. Once the lifts have stopped churning, you will find there are plenty of bars that kick-start the evening’s entertainment. Being the most glamorous village in Courchevel means the nightlife scene here does come at a steep price.

There are a number of slope-side bars that tend to offer après ski during the afternoon, however, it’s not quite your ski boots dancing on tables atmosphere compared to other lively resorts. For that, Courchevel guests tend to head over to Meribel where they can partake in all the proper table dancing festivities that the heart could desire! In Meribel, the only place for the Courchevel crew to après ski is the Folie Douce, but let’s face it, where else do you really need?! Just be sure you don’t miss the last call from the announcers for the last lift back over on the Saulire Express – you may otherwise find yourself with a long hike up the mountain if you don’t want to get a taxi home!

Closer to home you will find ‘Le KuDeTa’ – part of the renowned nightclub ‘Le Kalico’ – is a piste side bar that really caters to the big party atmosphere scene. It’s located next to the Forum building in the centre of the resort. Expect things here to start from 4 pm onwards and enjoy the funky live bands and the vodka bar. Here you will be joined by a mixture of holidaymakers and seasonal workers as you get down and party in the snow!

Courchevel 1850 Nightlife

If you are looking for a lively après scene then the places to go to are Le Tremplin, in the Place du Tremplin or Le Milk Pub which is in the Place du Forum, both venues are affordable by Courchevel standards. Bar Le Jump near La Croisette is also a good destination if you are looking for somewhere that stays open till dawn.

For other après ski options, Le Refuge is a small and intimate French bar in the centre of Courchevel. With a relaxed atmosphere, live music and reasonably priced drinks it attracts a lively and fun crowd.

Situated near the entrance of Courchevel is the nightclub, Les Caves. This venue often has weekly events such as guest DJs and is very popular with the tourists and locals. However, for those on a budget, drinks here can be pretty expensive.
