Courchevel 1850 Luxury Chalets

Three Valleys, France

Description

Courchevel 1850 has the reputation for being the world's best ski resort. Immaculate pistes, superbly interlinked skiing on the vast 3 Valleys ski area amidst beautiful scenery and treeline skiing are just some of its features. Add to this an astounding range of luxury ski chalets, bars, restaurants, chic boutiques and nightspots and it's no wonder that Courchevel is so highly rated.

The Courchevel ski area, with 63 ski-lifts, and 117 downhill skiing runs with an accumulated length of 150 km, guarantees you quality snow cover (thanks to its 562 snow cannons) and the skiing of your dreams, from the beginning to the end of the season. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced skier, a back-country enthusiast, a family skier, or a rider, Courchevel offers the skiing experience you're looking for.

The Courchevel valley has a ski area that goes from 2,738m to 1,300m and which quite simply has something for everyone, including some of the best-groomed motorway cruising pistes in the world. In fact the maintenance of the runs here rivals the standards found in the finest North American resorts, with two-thirds of the total piste area now being groomed each night. The snow-making systems are also very impressive 35% of its skiable terrain is now covered by man-made snow.

Courchevel has heavily invested this summer in improving the already excellent lift system. The Biollay chairlift (the busiest in Courchevel) has been replaced by a fast 6 man lift and can now whisk 3300 skiers per hour up the 365m vertical drop, an increase of 30%, and the Saulire cable car, taking skiers from mid station to the peak of Saulire (2100m to 2700m) has received a total makeover. Over a million Euros has been invested in new state of the art piste grooming machines (bringing the total to 21) to ensure the corduroy slopes which have come to epitomise skiing in Courchevel are even more perfect than ever. The investment in snow making equipment also continues – this year alone Les Creux, the well-known 4.6km red run, has had an extra 46 snow cannons installed at a cost of €2,000,000.

Courchevel is not one but four quite separate resorts at different altitudes above the Bozel Valley, linked on piste but with little else in common. A free bus service connects the different villages.

Courchevel 1850 is the international resort with the jet-set image. Like its stylistic rival, Megève, a high proportion of its designer-clad visitors come here to see and to be seen. A covered mall houses expensive boutiques, and a couple of supermarkets cater for the more mundane needs of self-caterers. The secluded Jardin Alpin sector is a Millionaire’s Row of sumptuous luxury ski chalets and shockingly expensive hotels tucked away in trees that provide at least an illusion of privacy.

Courchevel 1650 is 200m vertical lower down both the mountain and the price scale.

Courchevel 1550 is away from the heart of the skiing. It is little more than an attractive cluster of apartment buildings, luxury chalets and a few hotels, but looks set to expand as it becomes better integrated into the Trois Vallées.

Le Praz (Courchevel 1300) is a beautiful and traditional village with some lovely luxury chalets at the foot of the lift system Courchevel’s skiing. Two gondolas (‘always free of queues’) swiftly take you up towards the Col de la Loze, which connects with Courchevel 1850 and to La Tania.
