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!
