Call 01242 547 705 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Courchevel 1850 is a world class luxury ski resort and deservedly so. Superbly manicured pistes, a brilliantly efficient lift system and impressive snow-making, means near perfect ski conditions all winter long. In the Courchevel valley alone there are some 63 lifts and around 150km of pistes. With 563 snow cannons, mostly north facing slopes and a ski area that rises from 1,300m to 2,738m, you are guaranteed quality snow cover from mid December to late April. Every evening the pistes are groomed to perfection, in fact the snow grooming rivals the standards found in some of the most popular North American resorts. The resort centre itself exudes luxury with an abundance of designer hotels, chic chalets, Michelin-starred restaurants and up-market boutiques. This is the place to see and be seen - it’s not difficult to understand why this exclusive resort attracts the rich and the famous.

Bowling alley - With the lanes that can be adapted for children it is something that all the family can enjoy. It is fairly small so booking is essential, but it is something to fill those evenings after a big day on the slopes

Hang gliding - If you fancy knowing how it feels to fly like a bird then hang gliding is certainly something you should try. Off you’d go with an experienced pilot seeing Courchevel from heights that many wouldn’t go to

Indoor ice-skating - Being able to ice skate out of the elements is something that not many resorts offer. One night a week there will also be karaoke on ice, so there is the ‘different’ après everyone always looks for

Snowmobiling - For motorsport fans across Courchevel you can spend a day following a private trail or you can set off in the evening along the pistes that have been reserved for you to test the bends of the ski area

Sledging - You can hurtle down the 2km track with its 300m difference in altitude and average incline of 15% it will certainly get your heart beating fast. If you are feeling extra adventurous you can use it in the evening when it is floodlit

Bars - From heavy après to quiet and chic there are lots of bars here in Courchevel to suit everyone’s needs

Cinema - There are two cinemas here, each of them showing English speaking films and they are great way of hiding indoors if the weather isn’t at its best

Shopping – boutiques - Not so surprisingly the shops here in Courchevel are of a particular high standard. With many small boutiques and also the high end designer shops too. It is a particularly busy town through the whole day and into the evening

Ice hockey matches - At the local indoor ice rink there are often Ice Hockey matches. Normally advertised in the local area and always makes for a great evening

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS
In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server EUR 50 for a EUR 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.
