Courchevel: The Chic French Resort With Excellent Skiing Opportunities

Courchevel French Alps resort ski destination

Courchevel is part of the huge Three Valleys ski area, which has 600 km of pistes. Many of the slopes in this resort are faced north so the snow is some of the best in the whole area with pistes for everyone, from beginner to expert. The interesting thing about Courchevel is that, in fact, it’s not one resort village, but four separate ones, connected by lifts and pistes, as well as, a road. The four resorts are named Le Praz (1300), Courchevel Village (1550), Moriond (1550) and Courchevel (1850).

Le Praz is a real French Alps village and the wooden chalets give it a rustic appeal. Here you will find the ski jumping hill which was built for the Olympics in 1992. The Courchevel Village is a quiet and peaceful area, perfect for family holidays. Moriond has an attractive village centre with good restaurants and bars. For non-skiers, there is a large watersports centre.

Located at the top, Courchevel is the biggest resort village which shines with glamour and luxury. The resort is full of exclusive facilities and services, from five-star hotels to Michelin starred restaurants. Luxury comes at a price, so Courchevel (1850) requires a bigger budget.
