Skiing in Courchevel

The ski resort

The ski area of Courchevel spreads over 150 kilometers of ski slopes with 58 ski lifts. The area offers many ski slopes for all levels with 19 green slopes, 35 blue slopes, 34 red slopes and 8 black slopes.

Courchevel also offers several "themed" skiing areas on its domain. Beginners, families and anyone looking for a quiet ski area will particularly appreciate the Zen and Easy Rider areas in Le Praz, the Altiport, the Jardin Alpin and Moriond. Specific ski passes to access these beginner areas are available. In 2018, the Family Space gets a brand new environment where children and parents ski through the lands of Incas!

The Western Skipark offers a cowboy and Indian atmosphere to the families, a protected play area (enclosed area) for gentle and wide slopes. There are also two canyons: the Indian's Trail and the Fun Park.

The resort has also partnered up with the Aqua Center Aquamotion. Are you in Courchevel to ski 2 or more days? Enjoy a free entrance to the "aqualudique space". For 6 days of skiing, enjoy two free entries, including one to the wellness space.

The Stop Zone offers a timed slope and challenges skiers to a quick and controlled stop at the end of the descent ...

The Carabosse ski slope offers easy and fun terrain and the Snake Park is ideal to improve sharp turns.

The BMW XDrive offers a timed and filmed slalom, each skier can then retrieve the video of his exploits!

Finally, the Avalanch'camp is an educational space that allows you to learn how to find avalanche victims.

Snowpark - Courchevel ski resort

The 3 Valleys Ski Area

The 3 Vallées is the largest connected ski area in the world, it includes the resorts of Courchevel, Val Thorens, Méribel, Les Menuires, La Tania, Brides-les-Bains, Saint-Martin-de-Belleville and Orelle.

The figures speak for themselves with a total of 600 km of skiing on 328 alpine ski slopes, 166 ski lifts, 130 sq.km of surface area and 62,000 meters of cumulative gradient ... What to please skiers of all levels!

With 4 Funitels (two-cable disconnectable gondola, capable of operating at high speed even in windy conditions), 3 cable cars, 32 gondolas and 61 high-speed chairlifts the 3 Valleys ski area claims that the time spent in their ski lifts is divided by two compared to competing ski resorts.

The snow

85% of the ski area of Courchevel is located above 1800 meters and the majority of the slopes are oriented north, which guarantees a qualitative natural snow. The area also has 4 glaciers and 25 accessible summits, for a maximum altitude of 3230 meters.

To compensate for the vagaries of the weather the resort is equipped with a park of 700 snowmakers. In 2018, Courchevel gathers 26 new snowmakers, to cover the snow guaranate up to the Lac du Creux et de la Rama slopes.
