Le Bouc Blanc is easy to access via the La Tania lift, making it an excellent option if you want to include non-skiers in your afternoon dining plans. Even when their huge sundeck is full, the food is excellent and the service is flawless. At the top of La Loze, La Soucoupe is perfect for slope-side dining.

Courchevel 1850 Ski Area

With dreamy runs through the trees and sweeping views all the way to Mont Blanc, Courchevel is a picturesque place to ski. Long and wide pistes are a pleasure to explore, and you have the world’s largest interconnected ski area at your fingertips. Whether you’re planning on cruising between mountain restaurants or pushing your ability to the next level, you’ll find plenty of terrain to inspire and delight.

The ski area

In 1850, you’ll be steps away from the main lifts serving the Courchevel ski area, giving you easy access to 150km of piste. With altitudes up to 2,738m, flawless grooming, and top-notch snow-making facilities, the surrounding slopes are a pleasure to ski down.

Gentle runs back into town help beginners save all their energy for the slopes. Intermediate and advanced skiers will find entertainment higher up the valley but if you want to venture further afield, the 3 Vallees ski pass gives you access to a wider 600km of piste.

From Courchevel 1850, these are the main areas you’ll be skiing:

  •   As the biggest resort in the valley, Courchevel 1850 has something for everyone. Enjoy the best selection of ski schools and nursery areas, a glorious choice of intermediate slopes, and challenging advanced and off-piste terrain.
  •   Courchevel 1650 is the ultimate cruising spot, with long intermediate runs and some fun backcountry when you’re feeling adventurous.
  •   La Tania is packed with fun intermediate, expert, and backcountry routes. If you’re looking for extra action, you can hop on a lift from here and explore Meribel.

Boarders

Snowboarders will have a fantastic time in Courchevel, with wide, north-facing slopes and some of the best-groomed pistes the Alps have to offer.

Keep in mind that the resort can be crowded, especially during school holidays, so it may not be the best option for less confident riders. Total beginners may want to avoid the drag lifts in 1650 and opt for the travelator at Biollay.

The Family Park at the top of the Verdons piste keeps growing every year. Show off your moves on boxes, rails, and kickers separated by ability, reach new heights on the giant airbag, and get competitive on the boardercross. If you want to mix things up, you’ll find more snow parks in Meribel and Val Thorens.

Freeriders will appreciate a good selection of accessible backcountry, especially the routes through the trees in Le Praz on bad weather days. Get your heart racing on the steep cliff drops in 1650 or ignite your inner adventurer with a day discovering the off-piste around Val Thorens.

Beginners

If you’re clipping on your skis for the first time, Courchevel is an excellent place to learn. There are dedicated ‘Zen’ areas to keep things relaxed while you build your confidence, and free lifts serving the beginner slopes spread across the valley.

1850 is a prime location for beginners, with many of the best ski schools based here. Schools meet close to the centre of town in the mornings, and you can wrap up your days sweeping back in on gentle greens and blues. 1850 has the best variety for new skiers, thanks to a wonderful network of greens that will spike your interest in exploring the mountains. When you’re feeling confident, the blues by the Altiport offer gentle progression.

If you’re helping your little ones take their first steps on skis, they’ll have a fantastic time at Village de Enfants. It’s the world’s largest enclosed ski area for children, providing a safe and fun place for them to learn.

Our recommended ski schools:

  •   New Generation have schools in 1650 and 1850. They offer group lessons in skiing, snowboarding, freestyle, and off-piste. They also have separate lessons for teenagers.
  •   ESF Courchevel offers lessons in 1550, 1650, and 1850. Their kid’s lessons are in small groups to enable fast progression. They offer group and private lessons for all levels and ages.
  •   Supreme Ski use friendly and knowledgeable instructors to teach skiing and snowboarding, with only 6 children or 4 adults to a group lesson.

Intermediates

Intermediate skiers will find infinite opportunities in the Courchevel valley and across the wider 3 Vallees domain. The blues above 1850 are the ideal place to find your ski feet again. For non-stop action, head to the top of Vizelle at 2,660m and take a route of blue runs that’ll plunge you down to Courchevel Village. When you’re ready to take things up a notch, Vizelle also has a brilliant selection of reds and a smooth transition to 1650.

1650 has some of the best intermediate options in the valley. Its Les Indiens blue is popular for winding routes through the woods and a fun photo opp at a Native American camp. The Chapelet run offers a gentle transition to red runs, while the Jean Pachod will get your heart racing.

Thanks to its tree-lined slopes, Le Praz is the best option on a bad weather day. But it also hides some great reds and uncrowded slopes. Ride the long Brigues red all the way down then take the gondola back up to 1850 just in time for apres. Your legs will definitely appreciate the rest.

Advanced

Les Suisses from Vizelle is one of the more challenging black runs in the valley, but you can ease yourself into it by trying the quieter M piste first. For ultimate bragging rights, attempt the World Cup l’Eclipse run. If your legs can take it, you can even join it from the top of Dou Des Lanches and round off the day with almost 1,000m of black terrain in one go.

Overall, you’ll find the best backcountry around 1650 or over in Val Thorens. For outstanding and accessible off-piste, take the Saulire lift to the Grand Couloir. Once you’re confident on the piste, you can choose between three challenging red itinerary runs. But to really get the most out of your time freeriding, we recommend hiring a mountain guide for at least one day. They know the area like the back of their hands and will help you to find those hidden gems.

Weather

85% of the runs in the 3 Vallees are above 1,800m. Paired with premier snow-making facilities, they are able to offer a snow-sure experience from early December until the end of April. Courchevel’s slopes are excellent at holding the snow and a strong dedication to grooming delivers satisfying corduroy pistes all season.
