Ski area Courchevel

With the lift pass "Courchevel" you have access to a ski area with 150 km of diverse pistes which has a lot new aspects to offer. Several lifts have been extended in the meantime: the 6-person chairlift "La Forêt" with covers replaces the old 4-person gondola, and the lift "Aiguille du Fruit" was also renewed. The 10-person "Grangettes" gondola, which connects Courchevel 1550 with 1850, will be redesigned this season, cutting travel time in half.

Numerous green and blue pistes offer beginners a wonderful chance to try out and get to love skiing. The pistes and lessons are to be found rather in the lower and more forested areas, which offers protection against wind and snow. But also the more advanced and free riders will find perfect conditions higher up the mountain: The red and black pistes offer many opportunities for fun and diversity. For a real kick of adrenaline we recommend the run down steep mountain side at the Saulire. Furthermore, Courchevel offers a special treat for freestylers with its "Woodpark", located at the Plantrey chair lift. The family park at the Verdons lift is also suitable for beginners. During the 2018/2019 winter season, the new "Slalom Park" opened. Here, compete against your friends or race against time. Moreover, on 17 December, the giant slalom competitions for the women's skiing world cup will be taking place in Courchevel.

For pros and experts we recommend the upgrade to the "Les 3 Vallées" lift pass (see ski region).

In the tourist office, as well as in many mountain railway stations, you have access to Wi-Fi hotspots.
