Welcome to Courchevel

Courchevel is a world-class ski resort and part of the famous Three Valleys ski domain, one of the largest in the world with access to 600km of marked pistes. It's a place where luxury really does mean luxury. Everything about Courchevel is high-end, from the perfectly groomed runs and state-of-the-art lift system to the Michelin-starred restaurants, exclusive high-end hotels and chalets, glamorous nightlife and stylish designer boutiques.

Courchevel was a collection of small hamlets and sheep farms until 1942 when the French Commission of Tourism expressed an interest in creating a ‘super ski resort.’ Construction of Courchevel Altiport began in 1961 and the ski area was linked to Val Thorens and Méribel in 1973. Courchevel became popular with the Parisian set, leading to the addition of more luxury hotels and chalets which, in turn, attracted a new wave of the rich and famous.

The ski area offers wonderfully wide, gentle and immaculately groomed pistes, many running through pretty forests. Its north-facing aspect means the snow quality is excellent. The resort is spread over five villages, each with very different personalities. You can choose between the glamour of Courchevel 1850, the rustic charm of Le Praz, the vibrant nightlife in Courchevel Moriond, the budget-friendly Courchevel Village or the family-favourite La Tania.
