Courchevel Ski Holidays

Unparalleled luxury and glamour, several Michelin-starred dining options, access to exceptional slopes - there are plenty of reasons to love stylish Courchevel. This cosmopolitan ski resort is the perfect mix of exclusive alpine destination and fun-loving winter playground. 

Enjoy the resort

Courchevel is made up of four separate villages, perched at varying altitudes on the mountainside. You’ll find the main hub at Courchevel (1850) – the highest, largest and most prestigious of the four – where the streets are lined with upmarket boutiques, gourmet restaurants and picturesque timber chalets.

We’ve selected a beautiful choice of hotels in both glamorous Courchevel 1850 and its more laid-back cousin, Courchevel 1650.

Famous for having no fewer than nine Michelin-starred restaurants, including Le 1947 with its coveted three stars, the celebrated Courchevel culinary scene treats diners to incredible fine dining. The cuisine is varied, as chefs create everything from Japanese to authentic Savoyard dishes. There are more relaxed options as well, including some enthusiastic après-ski bars where you can let loose and dance in your ski boots. 

Skiing in Courchevel

Courchevel is the most extensive and varied part of the Three Valleys which is itself the biggest linked ski area in the world with terrain on offer for every taste and ability ranging from wide open green runs to narrow black couloirs.

There are excellent beginner areas above both Courchevel Moriond (1650) & Courchevel (1850). In Courchevel 1850, the best beginner area is above the main village at Pralong, near the Altiport. There is also another beginner zone around the Jardin Alpin area. Both areas also have some nice blue runs nearby, allowing easy progression further afield. Courchevel Moriond is generally quieter than Courchevel 1850 so can also be excellent for beginners and the lovely rolling runs are great for leisurely cruising as well as for providing a welcome break from Courchevel 1850's busier runs. For the very young the ESF in Courchevel 1850 provides fantastic childcare facilities, thanks to its ski garden and crèche which children can join from the age of 18 months.

The Three Valleys is the greatest intermediates' playground in the world, with enough on offer to keep you busy for months! One of our favourite runs is the long, cruising Combe de la Saulire which is ideal first thing in the morning when it has been freshly groomed and is empty.

There is also plenty to interest experts within the Courchevel valley itself, the most popular runs being the couloirs at the top of the Saulire cable car. There is a lot of steep terrain on offer, both on and off piste. If you are a sucker for moguls then you'll love the black Suisses & Chanrossa runs or try the off-piste moguls under the Chanrossa chair (with a guide).

If you want to venture off-piste then there is plenty to keep you busy - for first timers the Tour du Rocher de l'Ombre is great and for more experienced off-piste enthusiasts then Les Avals is a popular choice. However, please always remember to ski with a guide when going off-piste.

Après-Ski in Courchevel

Reflecting the cosmopolitan nature of the resort, Courchevel's après-ski options are both rich in quantity and quality.

In 1850 Le Tremplin is a great place to catch some afternoon sun on the terrace and there's often live music in the late afternoons. If it's more of a nightclub you're looking for, Les Caves is a fantastic option, attracting glamorous locals and tourists alike.

In 1650 Le Bubble Bar is the place to be. Live bands have the 'straight off the slopes' crowd dancing enthusiastucally with friendly and efficient staff keeping the glasses full. For something more traditional, head to Bar Le Schuss, a typical mountain lodge in the heart of the village. The chic Fire & Ice Bar at the Hotel Portetta has a large outdoor terrace complete with log burning fire, fire snugs and heated seating where you can enjoy a frozen shot with a slice of pizza.
