Ski info
Top Tips
  • Ski area

    With 150kms of piste in the Courchevel ski area alone and a great variety of runs for all levels of skier and boarder, from open mountain to pretty tree lined runs and easy links to the rest of the Three Valleys ski area. There are plenty of local pistes at Courchevel 1850 for beginners to learn on. Intermediates will enjoy the many reds on the Saulire Creux and for the brave hearts, the steepest black run in Europe; the Grand Couloir, is a must.

    Blue cruisers will love the rolling terrain from Chanrossa down to the picturesque Bel Air, a great sunny spot to take a break and take in the view. Courchevel snowboarding weekends are popular as the pistes are well groomed with very few drag lifts, the Prend ta Luge et Tire Toi being the Courchevel 1850 snowboard hangout. There is good, easily accessible off piste in the Courchevel area - a guide must be used for off piste. On white out days, taking the tree lined runs down from Courchevel to La Praz and La Tania make for easy navigation.

    Links to the rest of the `Three Valleys' ski area are excellent. The Chenus gondola from 1850 up to the Col de la Loz, quickly and easily via blue runs, connects to the Meribel area to then ski on over to St Martin and Les Menuires. There are several gondola options to access Saulire to connect via red runs over to Meribel Mottaret and then on to Val Thorens and Les Menuires.

    The resort

    The ski weekend village of Courchevel 1850 in the Three Valleys ski area was one of the first purpose built ski resorts so great access to the slopes was a key consideration. The great ski location, along with great snow reliability, makes this a popular short ski break holiday resort. 

    Even though Courchevel is known for its' up market hotels and chalets along with Michelin starred restaurants there are a few affordable options too. Its easy access to the slopes, ski schools and the central La Croisette area, makes this a good destination for families. For late night après ski there is a choice of late bars and clubs to choose from on a Courchevel ski weekend.
