What's on in Courchevel February 2019

The winter season is really in full flow now and the pistes are ready for UK and French school holidays. Therefore there are lots of fun events planned for February that are suitable for all the family.

February is often the best time for skiing in Courchevel as January snowfall has improved the pistes, and there is even chance of some quality off piste skiing.

Verdons by night

Night skiing on Verdons continues throughout February every Wednesday between 18:00 and 20:00. If you have a six day or over or a season pass then it's free, or else it's €11 for the evening. You can access the Family Park which has music blasting, making it an awesome atmosphere. This is a cool experience and an event not to be missed. The free ski bus runs all evening to each of the resorts, so getting to Courchevel is easy.

Moriond luge racing

Every Tuesday and Thursday evening between 17:00 to 19:30 you can go up Ariondaz gondola and race your friends down the luge track. The luge opened last year and has been a great addition to the non-skiing activities in Courchevel. It costs €15 for one descent or €11 per decent for four descents, so it makes it cheaper if you go in groups of four. Children under 1.40m must be accompanied by an adult, and this activity is subject to adequate snow cover with good weather. 

International Festival of Pyrotechnic Art

This unique festival is now in it's 17th year, and it is certainly not to be missed. Firework groups from around the world put on dazzling shows that will be unlike anything you've seen before. On different dates throughout February and March you can watch the performances for free. On February 14th it will take place in Village, on February 21st in Courchevel 1850, and on February 28th it will be in Moriond. It starts at around 18:30 when it gets dark, and the Tourist Office also offer free vin chaud and hot chocolate.

Ice skating show

Avatar on Ice is a ticketed event taking place at Le Forum ice skating rink in Courchevel 1850. It is a family friendly event that will leave you feeling in awe of the professional ice dancers. You can embark on a frosty journey to the mysterious land of Avatar. Tickets are available from the local Tourist Office and the performances take place on February 18th and 25th.

Chamallow party

These cosy wintry parties continue throughout February, where you can warm up around a crackling fire and toast some marshmallows and gorge on vin chaud. They are taking place on February 12th at 15:00 in Village, and on February 26th in Moriond, also at 15:00. This is a free family friendly event, and a perfect sugar hit for kids.

Great skiing in Courchevel Moriond

As February is notoriously a busy school holiday month, make sure you don't overlook the brillaint skiing in Courchevel Moriond. Jump on Roc Mugnier or Chanrossa chairlift to get you to the most Eastern part of the Three Valleys. The slopes in this area are generally quieter and are full of excellent blue runs and stunning views of Dent du Villard and Grand Bec mountains. There is an indoor heated picnic area at the top of Ariondaz gondola which is perfect for large groups and families.
