France, Three Valleys Ski Area
Ski Courchevel! In this Sahara of snow, skiers and boarders can undertake the ultimate ski safari. If you want to ski till you drop – this is the place. Courchevel and its neighbours in France’s celebrated Three Valleys – including Méribel, Les Menuires, Val Thorens-Orelle (Europe’s highest ski resort) and St Martin de Belleville – comprise what is arguably the largest ski “domaine” in the world. It offers great skiing for all abilities, with immaculate pistes and stunning scenery. Courchevel 1850 (still known as such in spite of the resort’s decision to drop the ‘1850’) boasts a wide selection of fine hotels, designer boutiques, top class restaurants and a buzzing nightlife. Hence this truly world class ski resort is sometimes described as “Paris on ice”. Sitting just below 1850 is Courchevel 1650 (now officially Courchevel Moriond) - a more traditional village with its own superb linked ski area, and a more laid back atmosphere than its more cosmopolitan neighbour. Skiing in Courchevel is spread over four levels, all linked via a free bus service, with slopes offering something for everyone. The high-altitude skiing here is superb with breathtaking views and enormous skies. Skiing holidays in Courchevel are also a great choice for non-skiers. Enjoy delightful cleared walks between villages, classical concerts, helicopter flights, ice climbing and much more.
