The Courchevel valley has 67km of prepared cross country trails perfect for beginners and experts.
Tracks are maintained for both the classic and skating styles, usually side by side on specially prepared pistes. These trails all operate on a one-way system (for obvious reasons), and you can buy a pass before setting out, usually from the lodges at the beginning of the trails. The trails are patrolled and it is likely that your pass will be spot-checked.
The pistes are maintained each night and walkers are requested not to use the marked trails across the whole of the Three Valleys.
From Courchevel itself there are several options including the Col de la Loze loop, an easy 2.5km blue piste, and the Bouc Blanc itinerary is a slightly longer blue 5km piste.
The Courchevel/Méribel Altiport run is a 17km red track and the Courchevel/La Tania run is a 15km red track. These are both harder than the blues, so better suited to those who have built up confidence and are ready to tackle something more challenging.
The Les Brigues/Chantery track runs through the forest is a red 5km piste.
The Boucle Bleue du Belvedere is 5km long and starts next to the Granges draglift, providing an easy itinerary passing farmhouses and beautiful scenery along the way.
From Le Praz there are three loops. The green is 2km and starts opposite the ski jump. The red is 7km and the black is 8.5km, both starting from the tourist office.
The trails are free to use and you can pick up a guide booklet and map from the tourist offices.
