Chic resort with some of the best skiing in the Alps
Courchevel has the reputation for being the world's best ski resort. Immaculate pistes, superbly interlinked skiing on the vast 3 Valleys ski area amidst beautiful scenery are just some of the reasons the area is so popular. Add to this an astounding range of bars, restaurants, chic boutiques and nightspots and it's no wonder that Courchevel is so highly rated. Our accommodation has been carefully selected, all villages are well linked by a free bus service (with lift pass) and a variety of ski lifts.
The slopes of Courchevel are amongst the best groomed in Europe. The Verdons and Jardin Alpin télécabines will whisk novice skiers to a number of gentle, wide pistes with easy gradients, perfect for practising basic techniques.
Intermediates will relish the huge variety of runs in the 3 Valleys with exciting reds, leisurely blues and the occasional black. Some of the best runs in the world.
Experts can hit the black run under the Chanrossa chairlift and then shoot under the Roc Mugnier chair, down to Courchevel's Fruit Junction to find out the true meaning of steep and deep!! Now you've got the taste, head for the Ugly Sisters - an infamous trio of couloirs, racing down from the Saulire summit.
