The Courchevel valley is made up of 4 well-connnected and very different ski resorts. Here they are in height order:
Courchevel Le Praz
Our chalets in this valley are in Courchevel Moriond, where we arrived 40 years ago. Moriond is the most friendly, offers the best value, has fewer (if any) queues and much quieter pistes - and that is why we have stayed there. We've also carved oursleves a niche in Moriond. When you are a Le Ski guest you have the back up of our heritage in the resort. We are well respected and the locals look after Le Ski guests in the knowledge that they will probably be back...they're not daft!
Courchevel got itself a name for being the home of Russian skiers but that was always limited to the outrageously priced palaces in Courchevel 1850 - and is now a thing of the past for obvious reasons. Moriond has never been like that and has a very relaxed, friendly vibe. There are lots of bars and restaurants, an excellent lift connection and some of the best pistes in the 3 vallees area. There is much more about the skiing below...
If you’re a non-skier or simply fancy a change of adrenalin rush, then Courchevel has quite a bit to offer. You can go snow-shoeing through the forests, ice-skating, cross country skiing, paragliding, snow-mobiling, piste-basher driving, sledgeing 300 vertical metres on a 3 kilometre track or visit the incredible Aquamotion. And if you are into firework displays then you are in for a huge treat - Courchevel's are very special indeed. The Telegraph recently declared that Courchevel was the best ski resort in the world - who are we to disagree?

Courchevel has all things for all skiers.
Courchevel is the largest of "Les 3 Vallees", which itself is the largest ski area in the world. 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, getting over to Meribel in no time. Experts will be delighted with some of the steepest slopes in the world. The incredible lift system in "Les 3 Vallees" means you can ski from Courchevel via Meribel to Les Menuires and Val Thorens in no time - and be back in plenty of time for afternoon tea.
Once you've skied in Courchevel you'll not want to go anywhere else.
