VIP skiing in the world's top ski area
As part of the now legendary 3 Valleys, Courchevel has access to the most extensive fully linked and piste ski domain on earth, but we love it for the superb skiing on its own slopes.
Experts and those without fear will love tackling the popular black runs of Saulire such as Jean Blanc and Jockeys or getting up the nerve to take on the famous couloirs up at Loze and the Ugly Sisters, but the real strength of Courchevel skiing is in mile upon mile of superb terrain loved by we lesser mortals.
Put on your Gucci shades and go learn to ski on the superbly gentle Biollay area with easy greens and blues that are wider than a billionaire's super-yacht. Intermediates will love cruisy days in the sunshine riding down the gentle blues and flattering reds of Chanrossa and Signal, before moving on to a more adrenalized day or two on Saulire (if you've got the minerals).
With skiing and snowboarding every inch as top-drawer as the chalets, Courchevel virtually guarantees an unforgettable ski holiday.
Courchevel resort and apres ski
Formerly the winter haunt of British old money, Courchevel 1850 now attracts a much wider range of clientele and has become internationally renowned in recent years for the extravagance and excesses of the Russian super-rich. In particular it is here you may get your first glimpse of that fabled beast the “Armani Snowboarder” with all the trimmings, strapped in and carving up the piste. With some of the best restaurants and most exclusive après ski in the world, Courchevel 1850 rightly deserves its reputation as the St Moritz of France.
