Description

Courchevel Le Praz is a beautiful, traditional ski village, set near woodland at the lowest part of the Courchevel resort with the 1992 Olympic ski jump dominating the village. The village has a few bars and eateries and due to its undisturbed character is great for families and groups with young kids.

Access to the main slopes is only a gondola ride, over the trees, up to Courchevel 1850 or towards the Col de la Loze for Meribel. Poor snow conditions used to mean a ride back down to the village however a new reservoir has been built to exclusively service the increased snow cannon network for the piste from 1850 to Le Praz. There is a beginner’s piste nearby and slopes that take you down from the top resort right back into the village

Courchevel has heavily invested 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 The Biollay chairlift (the busiest in Courchevel) has been replaced by a fast 6 man lift and can now whisk 3300 skiers per hour up the 365m vertical drop, an increase of 30%, and the Saulire cable car, taking skiers from mid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.

Apres-Ski

Nightlife is quiet and centres around the local bars. Le Praz is not the place for raucous nightlife. Its crêperie makes superb vin chaud, and the L'Escorch-vel bar is the late night haunt in resort.

The Ski in Luxury Team in Courchevel - Part 1

Wow, what a ski season!! This season has flown by. During the Summer of 2016, myself (Gavin), Will and Hannah all joined Ski in Luxury whilst it was nice and quiet. What a job we all thought as we sat back, put our feet up and had our peace and tranquillity interrupted by the occasional enquiry. Nearly a year down the line and none of us were prepared for just how busy our winter was to be. We have had an incredible season, matching people with the perfect luxury accommoRead More...
