The best events in Courchevel this month
The end of the 2019 season is almost upon us with April bringing in Spring events that are will get your heart pumping. Sporting events are aplenty but there is also family friendly activities that are suitable for everyone.
Late snowfall in March means the pistes are still perfect for Spring skiing and hopefully some Easter sunshine will mean outdoor après ski parties in each of the villages of Courchevel.

There is also a huge Savoyard buffet for the competitors to tuck in to in their respective resorts. You can enter any of the events on the Three Valleys own website.

It’s a great Easter egg hunt if you have children in your ski party.
