Courchevel Valley

Courchevel 1850 Ski Area

The Courchevel Valley is probably the best all round ski area in The 3 Valleys.

From Courchevel 1850, a vast set of green slopes in the immediate vicinity of the resort allows novice skiers to enjoy the pleasures of skiing without delay. This set of green slopes allows a very progressive learning of skiing or snowboarding.

At higher altitudes, the ski slopes gradually become more difficult. Splendid off-pistes are also quickly accessible.
The largest part of the ski area is north facing which guarantees very good quality snow.
From the bottom of the slopes you can quickly reach the areas of Courchevel 1650, Le Praz, La Tania and the Meribel valley.

Courchevel 1850 ski resort

Courchevel 1850 is set in a beautiful forest environment and is a ski in/out resort. It has a reputation for being elitist, and there’s no doubt it’s the priciest resort in The 3 Valleys, but that’s the only downside.

Apart from the elitist rates, it is difficult to find disadvantages in Courchevel 1850.
