Overview of Courchevel

Skiworld Team In-Resort- We have a Skiworld team based in this resort who are there from the moment you arrive until you depart to make sure that every aspect of your holiday runs smoothly. As well as having their contact details should you need them, they will be in contact with you during your stay to help with anything you may need and to make sure that you get the most from your ski holiday with us.

Courchevel ski holidays are to skiing what Marks and Spencer is to food shopping. Built on the perfect blend of good snow, varied terrain, fabulous accommodation, extraordinary food and a vibrant nightlife. Courchevel holds its own as one of the Big 4 ski resorts, without even mentioning its links to the mighty Three Valleys ski area.

Although purpose-built, Courchevel accommodation and especially Courchevel ski chalets have in most cases been sympathetically constructed to complement the mountain. Made up of four separate village-resorts, each station has its own personality and patrons.

The free bus service winds up from Le Praz (1300), the quaintest village, past Courchevel Village (formerly known as Courchevel 1550), through Courchevel Moriond (the old Courchevel 1650) to the highest village of Courchevel (formerly known as Courchevel 1850) – the most cosmopolitan village in the Three Valleys and one of the top luxury resorts in the world. In fact, glitzy Courchevel is probably more akin to the Harrods food court than M&S. Smart, sophisticated and expensive, with exceptional restaurants, shops and bars, this is the snowy playground of the rich and famous.

Courchevel Moriond is quieter, with an old village centre, lively bars and cosy Courchevel chalets, while Courchevel Village and Le Praz are much quieter and more family-friendly with a handful of quaint bars and restaurants.

Ski holidays in Courchevel offer something for everyone, but one thing that does come with a resort of this calibre is prices as high as it’s peaks and in Courchevel (formerly 1850), pretty much everything will cost you, but the lower you go, the more down to earth the prices become.

For lunch on the mountain it’s advisable to drop down into Meribel or Val Thorens for affordable eats, however, gourmets will find that the sky’s the limit in the choice of fine dining. Of course, if you’ve heard of the legend that is Courchevel, then so has the world and his St Bernard, but for cruisy pistes and a taste of the high-life, you can’t beat a ski holiday in Courchevel.

3 Things We Love About Courchevel

  1. Quality Skiing – Courchevel has some of the best-groomed slopes in Europe, as well as an excellent lift system, making it a great place for beginners and intermediate skiers. Many of Courchevel’s slopes are north-facing, meaning the snow is usually the best in the whole ski area.
  2. Les Trois Vallées – Courchevel makes up one-third of Les Trois Vallées (The 3 Valleys) and with 600km of pistes, it is one of the largest ski areas in the world. With a full area lift pass, you can easily ski over to Val Thorens for lunch, dance on tables in Folie Douce, Meribel and make it back in time for afternoon tea in Courchevel.
  3. Aquamotion – The largest European water park in the mountains opened in Courchevel. It is located at the Grandes Combes, between Courchevel Village and Courchevel Moriond, which is just a short bus ride away. Aquamotion has several water-related activities, from waterslides to hot tubs and even a surfing simulator. There is also a large wellness centre too, in case you’re feeling all skied out.
