Lydia, your Friendly Ski Chalet Specialist in Courchevel

Ski Range 1,300m – 3,230m

Courchevel, considered by many to be the ultimate ski resort, attracts all who search for the very best.

It is generally agreed that the highest two stations of Courchevel 1850 and Courchevel 1650 (now re-named Courchevel and Courchevel Moriond but most people are still using the old names) are the most desirable with the high altitude skiing and guaranteed snow of the glaciers of the Three Valleys, which is why Ski Total offer chalets in these 2 areas.

Courchevel 1650 started life as a small village, Moriond (and has officially now reverted to that name), which has grown into a superbly developed resort, with its own character and style, and easy access to the ski slopes and the high altitude guaranteed snow of the Peclet Glacier.

Courchevel 1850 offers real French charm in the wide variety of chic shops and fine restaurants and thoroughly deserves its top-flight reputation. Our chalets and Chalet Hotel are ideally located for quick and easy slopeside access.


Courchevel 1650 Ski school

We work with New Generation, a popular ski school based in Courchevel 1650. The meeting place is just under the Ariondaz bubble at the bottom of the Marquis drag lift so just over the road and up the escalator from Chalet Cascades.

Beginners will not need a lift pass from day 1 as there is a free beginners' area at the foot of the pistes and your instructor will tell you when you need to buy a pass. All other groups will need a Courchevel pass only as lessons will not take you in to the other valleys although higher lever skiers may want a full area pass if they wish to explore outside of the lessons.

1650 is one of the quietest areas of the 3 Valleys so is a great area for children to ski. There is a full programme of lessons at Christmas, New Year, Half Term and Easter for children as young as 4 to 13 years and a special teen programme for youngers aged 13 to 16 who want to have fun and blast around with others of the same age.


Courchevel 1850 Ski school

There is an excellent proportion of English-speaking instructors here. We recommend pre-booking group tuition, and for specialist courses or private tuition, advise our Ski Total representative who will be able to help you on arrival. Children are well catered for with the excellent Village des Enfants offering half or whole day care, for 3 years to 12 year olds, from 09.30 to 16.30. Those over 3 years of age can be taken skiing with a half or full-day service.

NIGHTLIFE & APRES SKI

Courchevel 1850 is renowned for both the quality and variety of its après ski life. Ranging from highly sophisticated through to loud and lively, it is mostly based around the atmospheric heart of Courchevel. Perhaps catch Parisian cabaret stars in an exclusive club, enjoy packed theme nights at one of the discos or a casual beer at L’Equipe – Courchevel skiing holidays have something to appeal to all tastes.

Courchevel 1650 (Moriond) is no less lively and its restaurants and bars, three of which have regular live bands and dancing, offer a wide range of evening entertainment. For dining out, Courchevel (1850) is undoubtedly the best in the Alps, including two Michelin starred restaurants, but both centres offer a wide range of choice, from haute cuisine right down to budget pizzerias.

SKIING IN Courchevel

Ski Range 1,300m – 3,230m
Courchevel is renowned for having one of the longest ski seasons and the best snow cover in the whole of the Alps, and has headed skiers’ list of prestige ski resorts for many a year now.

Courchevel 1850 is located in a wide bowl, where the skiing encircles the resort, with ski runs leading to virtually every corner of Courchevel town. Locally, most are boulevard pistes and glades, absolutely perfect for beginners and improvers skiing holidays. Meanwhile sweeping runs extend above, where better skiers will find the steeper pistes, bumps, powder and the famous couloirs of La Saulire.

To the east, Courchevel 1650 is mostly gentle, and everyone, including better skiers, will have a smile on their face as they cruise down scenic and winding runs like Pyramide at the end of a days skiing. But there’s some more challenging skiing too if you know where to look. Perhaps ski with an instructor for a day to find out where!

Down the valley, around 1550, Le Praz and La Tania, is wonderful roller-coaster country, and you will discover slopes here suitable for all.

Above and to the west is the Col de la Loze – from where you drop down to Méribel and start to explore the rest of the massive Three Valleys. See Méribel and Val Thorens for more details of all the wonderful skiing in these neighbouring valleys before setting off on your ski holiday.
