Courchevel Destination Guide

Something For Everyone!

First of all, let's put the record straight about Courchevel. Yes, prices in Courchevel (1850) are ridiculous (we're talking 18€ for a beer, 40€ for spaghetti bolognaise and 9€ for a hot choc) but Courchevel is made up of four other resorts, where prices are a lot more reasonable, so in essence, you don't have to be an oligarch to ski and snowboard those Courchevel pistes.

Courchevel TransferCollectively, there are 150km of pistes and 62 different lifts around the Courchevel area and, being part of the Three Valleys ski area, you will be able to access nearly 600km of pistes across the resorts, with a fast, efficient lift system meaning you can move between resorts and areas easily.

geneva to Courchevel TransfersWhen the regional government chose the small hamlet of Courchevel to develop a ski resort in 1946, the idea was that it'd make reasomably priced skiing accessible for everyone. This ethos was abandoned by the late 1950s and when a French journalist took over the running of the Tourist Office, work started on building Courchevel's international reputation.

With the building of the Jardin Alpin concert and show venue at 2000m, international stars came to perform and that's how the showbiz reputation of Courchevel began...

geneva to Courchevel TransferSo what is Courchevel really like for skiers and party lovers today?Let's start with the epicentre. Formerly known as Courchevel 1850 and now simply 'Courchevel', this area is the leading light and you'll see more fur coats, botox and big lips and hear more Champagne corks popping here than anywhere else in the Alps.

Courchevel Transfers to Geneva TransfersThe main snow front is around La Croisette, but the Jardin Alpin area is where many of the deluxe hotels and chalets way beyond the reach of us mere mortals are. In fact, there are 11 five star hotels in Courchevel 1850 alone and no less than three 'Palaces' for that ultimate six-star luxury.

The good news is that as well as being less pricey and offering the shortest Courchevel transfer time from Geneva, the resort of Courchevel le Praz (formerly know as Courchevel 1300) is much more reasonable priced. What's more, there are four pistes down from the 1850 and two ski lifts to get you directly up there too, so you are well-linked.

Le Praz is also where the ski jumps built for the 1992 Winter Olympics are, along with a very well-equipped sports training centre.

Courchevel Transfers to Geneva TransferContinue on the same road you'll come to lovely little La Tania. Not technically part of Courchevel, it's another good choice as it has lifts to connect you quickly to Courchevel and Meribel ski areas. Once again, Mountain Drop-offs offers private transfers to and from La Tania (choose La Tania Transfer in the quote form)

Courchevel Transfers to Geneva busBack on the road towards 1850, there's Courchevel Village at 1550m. This was the first place the modern Courchevel resort came to, with the first tourist hotel being Le Roc Merlet. This is also where the sledging piste from 1850 arrives and there are lifts to whizz you directly into the heart of 1850 too.

Further along the road is Courchevel Moriond (otherwise known as 1650). This was a little ski resort in its own right to begin with, but is now a fully integrated resort and part of the Courchevel ski lift company. It boasts a unique position on a south facing ledge and is host to the 2015-built AquaMotion watersports centre. Families will love the relaxed and family-friendly atmosphere.

We should also mention Courchevel Saint Bon at 1100m. It's the first official resort under the Courchevel umbrella and although it doesn't have any lifts, there are shuttle buses running all day and you can ski back down.

Courchevel Transfer BusThere's no doubting the skiing around Courchevel is fantastic. There is easily enough for the average skier to get their teeth into for a week, just be warned that if you fancy lunch on the mountain above Courchevel 1850 that you'll most definitely need a credit card - an average price for a meal for four with a modest bottle of wine will set you back around 200€ and Chalet des Pierres on the Verdons piste there's even a Chopard jewellery boutique complete with security guards!

Courchevel NYEOf course, if you do stop for lunch, there's every chance you might be rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous, with everyone from Wills and Kate to Katie Price enjoying slope time in Courchevel 1850. Similarly, at apres-ski around the snowfront side of La Croisettte it's all about Champers, dahling!

Whilst on the face of it Courchevel is all very chi chi, there are what we call seasonaire hang outs, such as Le Kalico that opens from 09:00 right through to 04:00 and has reasonably priced snacks and drinks, but it's not very glam.

Still, even with extortionate prices, Courchevel doesn't seem to be waning in popularity. With easy access and frequent transfera from Geneva, Champery and Lyon airports, the resorts that make up Courchevel are all very much geared up to welcoming hundreds of thousands of guests each week.

Once you're in resort there really is no need for a car, so you might as well leave it at your home airport and catch a transfer, that way you can save your pennies for those expensive chocolat chauds on the mountain!

Courchevel Skiing Guide

Couchevel ski race

* Jockeys and Jean Blanc are a duo of black runs heading right down to Le Praz that'll certainly test your skiing technique and are rarely very busy
