Tourism in the Courchevel Valley started as early as the beginning of the Twentieth Century with summer holidays rather than winter. The first skiers arrived in Courchevel in the 1930's and the development plan for a ski resort with the help of Lauren Chappis in the 1940's. The official name of 'Courchevel' was decided upon in 1946 along with the creation of the first hotel 'Trois Vallees Hotel'. The first ski lifts were installed towards the end of 1946 by Jean Pomagalski joining Courchevel Village to Courcehvel. By the late 1950's the resort consisted of; one cable car, three gondalas, six ski lifts and 210 buildings for accommodation. Development continued and over fifty years later there is currently 58 ski lifts and 150km of piste along with four separate resorts; Courchevel, Courchevel Moriond, Courchevel Village and Le Praz.
As the name suggests from the recent re-name of resorts, Courchevel Village is a small village resort without the glitz and glamour of Courchevel. It is a functional resort and has a great location at 1550m to access the Courchevel ski area.
When the sun is shining Courchevel Village is the place to be with the south facing terrace at La Table Les Flocons and the sunny terrace at L'Oeil de Boeuf both at Tovets. Right in the centre of Courchevel Village you can get a great pizza at Le Cortona.

Courchevel Village has two lifts that lead up to Courchevel 1850.

This lift is open after the pistes close to provide access to the Luge run situated at the top of the village as well as Courchevel 1850. The other lift is the Tovets Chair Lift which stops just in front of the Croisette. From here you can either take off your skis/snowboard to access the main lift station of Courhevel 1850 or you can follow the piste down towards Le Praz and the Plantrey Chair Lift.
