The Resort
 

The five resorts which make up the the Courchevel valley were recently renamed to reflect their individual personality rather than just being a number.

Courchevel (was named 1850)
Moriond (1650)
Courchevel Village (1550)
Le Praz
La Tania


We've been referring to 1650 as Moriond for years and nothing will change the fact that it has cheaper prices, fewer queues and quieter pistes!


We’ve been wittering on about how good Courchevel’s lifts are for many a long year now. A whopping €118million is being invested in updating the lift system over the next few years. The major change last year was a brand new Moriond bubble, and this winter brings a new Courchevel Village bubble.

The Skiing


Courchevel has all things for all skiers.

Beginners can find their feet on the free nursery slopes, graduating to the various bubble lifts to get a bit higher once they progress to the wide blues. Intermediates of all levels will enjoy the flattering skiing on cruisy blues and reds, and venturing further afield, it’s possible to ski to Méribel on blue runs.

There’s also plenty to keep adventurous skiers occupied in the Three Valleys – a whopping 600km of pistes in total. We promise you won’t get bored! If steep and deep is more your thing, then Courchevel can offer that too – we recommend skiing with a mountain guide who will be able to show you the best off-piste areas. 


The lift pass office have a selection of passes to suit differing levels of ability.

For real beginners, there is a free drag lift so that you can practice and not need to buy a pass until you're ready to go further afield. There are half day or timed passes also available for those who aren't up to a full day.

Intermediate skiers can choose a Courchevel Valley pass which gives plenty of skiing. With this pass you can also 'upgrade' with a Three Valley extension for a day if you fancy heading into M
éribel or beyond but it's cheaper to buy a three valleys pass from the start...

If you're a keen skier and want to go into the Three Valleys more than once during your week, then it's worth opting for the Three Valleys pass which gives you access to the largest ski area on Earth!

There are also family versions, pedestrian passes for non-skiers, discounts for children and seniors and freebies for the very young and err... 'extra-mature' skier!

Ask on the transfer bus if you're unsure as to what would be the best pass for you and your group. Click here for prices.
