This form of climbing was invented by Italian soldiers in the Dolomites who used it to enable them to scale vertiginous faces easily and quickly. Following marked routes through the mountains, you are helped along by steps, bridges and ladders whilst being roped up for extra safety. Beginners can take their first steps at Lac de le Rosiere, where you will find fairly easy routes on which to find your head for heights!

Alternatively, they may take you to one of the spectacular frozen waterfalls in the valley. The ice climbing wall is also open for your personal use if you are an experienced climber, the vertical ramps of the ice wall will raise the difficulty of the climb for those who are experienced.

Skiing & snowboarding in Courchevel

About Courchevel Ski Pass Prices

Downhill skiing & snowboarding
Lift-assisted downhill skiing and snowboarding are the most popular activities in Courchevel. So much so that we could write several guides dedicated to them... and, in fact, we have! Take a look at our Ski Areas, Pistes and Parks Guide where you'll not only find a lot of information on the Courchevel ski area but also links to many other articles: Ski Lifts GuideBest Pistes GuideSnowparks GuideBeginner Ski Areas GuideAdvanced Ski Areas GuideOff-Piste Ski Areas GuideSki Itineraries Guide and even a guide on the best places to go skiing when the weather is bad.

However, lift-assisted downhill skiing and snowboarding aren't the only things you can do in Courchevel while having a pair of skis or a board strapped to your feet.

Ski touring & split boarding
Whether it's going up the pistes that most people normally ski down or tackling a backcountry route, ski touring and split boarding allow you to get off the beaten path while working a sweat up the slopes. A number of ski schools, private instructors and companies can show you around or, if you've got all the necessary knowledge, you can head out in your own group. 
How much does it cost to go ski touring or split boarding in Courchevel? It depends. Ski touring prices in Courchevel range between €60 per day if you’re only renting the gear and around €400 if you’re also getting a guide for the day to help you explore the backcountry. Of course, if you already have the equipment and the local knowledge, ski touring in Courchevel is free!

Cross-country skiing
Courchevel boasts 90 km of tranquil cross-country trails, marked and free trails all start from one of Courchevel's villages.

You may also want to book a group or private lesson to learn the basics, in which case prices start at around €180 for a six-day group lesson. 

Heliskiing & heliboarding
Heliskiing is not permitted in France but there are a couple of companies in Courchevel offering panoramic helicopter rides that include heliskiing. They pick you up in resort and take you over the border into Italy or Switzerland from where you will ski down accompanied by a mountain guide. It is expensive, but definitely a once in a lifetime experience!

Prices start at around €300 per person and include the helicopter ride and a guide to go with you as you ski down the remotest areas in Courchevel.

Telemarking
Telemarking is a form of downhill skiing where you are only attached to the binding at the toe so, to turn, you have to lunge and bring your heel upwards. Talk to one of the ski schools or private instructors who can teach you how to telemark and take you out on excursions using this technique.

Biathlon
Modern winter biathlon is a combination of cross-country skiing and rifle shooting that tests not only fitness but also patience and control. In Courchevel you can try your hand at this Olympic sport. If you like cross-country skiing but want to add another challenge, then biathlon is the perfect way to escape into the natural, quiet surrounding mountains and then shoot stuff. Bit of a contradiction this one, but it's fun all the same.
How much does it cost to try out biathlon in Courchevel? Biathlon lessons usually start at around €150 for a half-day and they include all the equipment but for the cross-country ski rental, which starts at around €15 per day.

Speed-riding
The idea behind speed riding is to combine the sensations of skiing and paragliding into one activity, and then descend off-piste sections of the mountain using a mini-wing to enable you to access areas that you might not normally go. Learning and having fun with speed riding comes very fast as long as you are a competent skier – you need to be able to ski red pistes with confidence in any type of snow. 
How much does it cost to try out speed riding in Courchevel? Beginner speed riding lessons usually start at around €100 for a half-day group lesson and they include the wing but not the ski hire – high-end ski hire for advanced skiers starts at around €30 per day in Courchevel. Speak to one of the companies offering this activity who can show you the ropes (literally).

Torchlit descent
At night time you can strap your skis on and join others in a group to make your way down the piste holding a torch in a torchlit descent. Definitely something fun, different and challenging, and the perfect activity for groups or families. A traditional alpine experience you can enjoy the quiet of the pistes at night. Some companies offer the experience with a traditional Savoyard mountain meal at the top of the slopes followed by a descent down to Courchevel with professional guides. Speak to your ski school to see if they can take you. 

Airboarding
Ever heard of an Airboard? It's a new way to descend the mountain in the form of a posh sledge, like body-boarding on an inflatable. This relatively new twist on snow sports is a bit like body boarding down the piste. Lying stomach-down on an inflatable sled-like cushion you slide head-first down the mountain, picking up speed and using your bodyweight to shift direction. Many resorts enforce age restrictions and only allow airboarding within certain areas, so don’t go plummeting down your favourite black run before checking the rules first!
