Beginners ski holidays in Courchevel

In 1850, there are great nursery slopes above the Croisette and by the Altiport. Recent improvements have seen new lifts and rope tows specially designed for beginners. Novices in 1650 will find easy blues to suit gentle progression and the excellent ski schools in both villages are blessed with a high proportion of English speaking instructors.

Intermediates ski holidays in Courchevel

As you would imagine in such an enormous ski area as the Three Valleys, the opportunities are virtually endless, with an excellent mix of high altitude and tree line skiing. Try the excellent reds down into the Creux valley and the numerous, less crowded pistes of 1650.

Advanced ski holidays in Courchevel

Some of the best off-piste skiing can be found on The Grand Couloir at the top of the Saulire or the descents from the summit of the Creux Noirs or Chanrossa chairlifts. Mogul hounds are
spoilt for choice with over 50 black runs to negotiate across the whole ski area.

Snowboarding holidays in Courchevel

Boarders will love the three freeride areas, especially the excellent half-pipe in the Plantrey Snow Park.
