Courchevel is the largest of the resorts in the renowned 3 Vallées in the Savoie province of France. The Three Valleys comprise the world's largest ski domain, an area with 372 miles of trails and slopes that are interconnected with 198 lifts. America's six largest ski resorts would fit into the Three Valleys. Courchevel alone has 65 lifts and 102 runs, with a top vertical descent of more than 4,700 feet. Courchevel is built on four different levels, from 4,290 feet to 5,940. The highest cluster of buildings at Courchevel 1850 (metres) are, arguably, the most fashionable with luxury hotels and chalets and an energetic night life. Much of the accommodation allows skiers to step out of the door, after breakfast, and into their skis to embark on a journey to see how much vertical they can log or how far across the Three Valleys they can go. Sophisticated skiers will know in advance which mountain restaurant they will stop at for lunch (see also the listings for Meribel and Val Thorens.)

Resorts close to Courchevel include: Bozel (2 km), Champagny (5 km), La Tania (5 km), Méribel (6 km), Mottaret (6 km),

Visitor Reviews of Courchevel


JK Oxford from United Kingdom writes:

Have been lucky enough to have visited Courchevel for the last seven years and love it every time. The kids have learnt to ski here and with it's gentle runs down to the Croisette and a well marked green down from the top Chenus it made those early years enjoyable for all.

We have always used Magic for lessons and their positive attitude has led to the kids enjoying their skiing whislt giving them confidence to push themselves. Some places are pricey, but go self catering. Stop off in Moutier on the way and enjoy some of the best skiing anywhere in the world.

Love it.
