Culture, cuisine and everything in between
One of the 8 resorts which make up the world famous Les Trois Vallées ski area, Courchevel has something for everyone, from beginner to expert.
Whether you're a complete novice or an experienced powder hound, Courchevel won't disappoint. With 150km of runs and 58 lifts, the resort encompasses 5 interlinked smaller villages, each connected by a free shuttle bus and an efficient lift network.
For beginners, check out the 'ZEN Zones', the best of which you'll find in the villages of 1650 and 1850. These gentle slopes are dedicated to novices, and you'll soon find your ski legs before moving on to explore more of what the area has to offer. For the more experienced skier, there are 34 red and 8 black runs to test yourself on.
If you fancy trying your hand at whoops, rails and half-pipes, you'll want to head over to the snow park at 1850. Even if you don't fancy having a go yourself, it's worth a visit to watch boarders and skiers catching some air and showing off their freestyle moves.
If that's not enough, Courchevel is part of the Trois Vallées ski area - the largest ski area in the world covering 600km of connected slopes. Buy a pass to cover the entire Three Valleys and you won't need to cover the same run twice in a week!
Around a quarter of visitors to Courchevel never ski or snowboard during their stay, and with so many other activities on offer, it's hardly surprising - there's simply not enough time to fit it all in.
For adrenaline junkies, hangliding, paragliding, microlighting, and even sky diving are on offer, while if you prefer your thrills at ground level, you can hurtle down the 2km sledge run, drive a snowmobile or even a piste basher.
If you want to enjoy the snow, but fancy something a little more sedate, you can take to the hiking trails or strap on your snowshoes and explore the mountains in the company of a qualified mountain guide. Away from the busier ski slopes, you may even be lucky enough to see some of the Alpine wildlife; rabbits, fox, deer or even chamois.
If all that activity is too much, relax in one of Courchevel's spas. Indulge yourself with a massage before relaxing in an outdoor hot tub - soaking up the amazing mountain views.
If you've still got the energy after a day's skiing or snowboarding, Courchevel has some great clubs, bars and restaurants on offer.
Whether you go for a traditional Savoyarde fondue, a family-friendly pizza place or one of Courchevel's many Michelin-starred restaurants, (there are 6 in Courchevel 1850 alone), you'll be sure to find something to suit every palate and every wallet. Although eating out in ski resorts can be pricey, it is possible to get a good hearty meal that won't break the bank.
And once you've eaten, you'll want to take advantage of some of the aprés-ski on offer. Take your pick of piano bars and jazz bars, cocktail bars and night clubs. You can even a drink ice shots al fresco, cuddled on comfy sofas; warding off the chill under fur blankets.
