Courchevel is the access to the largest ski area in the world, Les 3 Vallées, with 372 miles of slopes, 7 connected resorts, 327 pistes, 186 lifts…this is an exceptional domain in every way.
It’s the combination of its premier location, and place in the world’s largest ski area ‘Three Vallées’, that makes Courchevel so special. Often overshadowed by its notoriety as the most exclusive destination in the Alps, Courchevel 1850 also deserves fame for its all-rounder excellence.
The town center exudes luxury from every corner with Michelin-starred restaurants, incredible 5* hotels and up-market boutiques in abundance.
The skiing is fantastic too. Many chalets and hotels here set new boundaries of opulence and are simply magnificent with first class service and “ski in, ski out” locations to match.
Celebrity spotting and designer labels aside, however, the pistes and terrain are great for all levels of skier from the absolute beginner to those seeking knee-deep powder fields. The town center lies at the bottom of a bowl surrounded by wide, green and blue pistes which are perfectly suited for novices.
The peaks of Chanrossa and Saulire provide spectacular views of the Three Valleys for intermediates and there are plenty of off-piste and alpine runs to keep even the keenest expert busy. With over 375 miles of pistes to choose from as well as some of the best accommodation available in the world, Courchevel 1850 is hard to beat.
