There is no better resort in Europe than Courchevel 1850. The resort is picture perfect with wooden chalets everywhere. Even though the visitors of the resort are all quite high profile the resort has a very laid back, relaxed atmosphere. Much better then Verbier of St Moritz. If you are considering a skiing holiday and are put off by the price of Courchevel, if you go the first couple of weeks after the schools return in January, you get empty piste, excellent snow and very reasonable prices. Also, you get to ski in four of the best ski resorts in France, Courchevel, Meribel, Val Thorens and Les Menuires so its well worth the extra expense!

The magnificent Courchevel Valley is one part of the Three Valleys in France. The picturesque resort has four villages named after their altitudes all with ski in ski out accommodation and a very reliable snow record. The skiing and snowboarding terrain in the Courchevel Valley is superb. Expect to find off piste open treeless powder bowls, steep chutes, cliff ***s, mogul runs and many long wide intermediate groomed cruising trails and gentle beginner slopes all serviced by an efficient lift system.
Bear in mind that Courchevel is a pricey skiresort for most of us.

Fantastic over-the-top skiresort! The town itself is becoming more and more pretty as the buildings are being upgraded from the horrid 60's and 70's flat roof buildings. It has a real alpine feel with the buildings being constructed in old timber. The shops are fantastic, but hugely expensive. I still believe it's the finest ski resort in Europe. Wide tree lined slopes, great snow, excellent mountain and resort restaurants. Fantastic night life. Forget the cost, you only live once. Totally excessive but totally wonderful. Enjoy Courchevel for its excesses.

Charming resort in the Trois Vallees. Beautiful wide and tree lined slopes. Some challenging slopes near the top and on the other side of the mountain towards Meribel. Snow condition is always superb here. Courchevel is an excellent resort for families with children, but can be very expensive.

The magnificent Courchevel Valley is one part of the Three Valleys. The picturesque resort has four villages named after their altitudes all with ski in ski out accommodation and a very reliable snow record. Advanced terrain is located on the higher altitude areas of the Courchevel Valley. Steep challenging chutes, cliff ***s and exciting open powder fields lead down from either side of the Suisses Chairlift from the Vizelle peak. The advanced runs to the right hand side of the Chanrossa Chairlift are generally quiet first thing in the morning so get out early to enjoy untouched powder. Both the Chanrossa area and the Signal area offer diverse terrain with hidden powder treasures and fast mo
