With 600km of slopes and a huge variety to suit everyone, no matter what your skiing ability you will be spoilt for choice. For beginners it is one of the best in the Alps, with great ski schools and great pistes to progress on.
Intermediates will not know which run to choose next and there is plenty of easy off piste too. For experts, the Grand Couloir is a real test of skill and nerve and adventures onward into Méribel and Val Thorens, part of the extensive 3 Vallées, await your discovery.
At the foot of the slopes in Courchevel 1550 / Village you will find the “Maison des Enfants”. This is the perfect starting point for even the youngest snow lovers, who can take their first memorable steps from the age of 18 months up to 12 years. The south facing “Maison des Enfants” offers a safe ski area in which children from the age of 3 and over can learn to ski. Also, being a quiet and peaceful village, away from all the noisy nightclubs and bars, it is easy to see why it is such a popular winter destination for families.
There are several bars and restaurants to sample or enjoy a deliciously warming vin chaud after experiencing the excitement of the twisting and thrilling toboggan descent. In 2015, the new aquatic and spa complex Aquamotion opened, and being Courchevel the facility did not disappoint.
