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.READ MORE
