Courchevel ski resort

Nestled in the heart of the Alps, in the upper part of the Tarentaise Valley, Courchevel and its 6 villages gradually reveal themselves as you round each corner of a pretty zig-zag road, surrounded by forests and breath-taking views… 6 villages connected by ski lifts or free shuttle buses form a single ski-in / ski-out resort boasting multiple worlds. The quest for excellence and minute attention to detail echoes throughout like a repeated refrain. In every village, countless little touches guarantee you an unforgettable stay… Give in to temptation and soak up the resort’s different atmospheres until you find the one that suits you best…

Courcheval has 150 kilometres of trails, including 19 green runs, 35 blue, 34 red and 8 black. It’s part of the Three Valleys, which stretches for 600 kilometres from the Mont Blanc massif in the north to the Les Exrins massif in the south. There’s also a terrain park with rails, jumps, moguls, boardercrosses and a children’s toboggan slope.

Courchevel has 45 hotels catering to all budgets, including three highly prestigious six-star hotels, known as ‘palaces’, in its tree-lined Jardin Alpin area. It is the only resort in France to have hotels with the palace ranking. It also has a large selection of chalets and apartments, from standard to deluxe.
