Courchevel's reputation as a world class ski area is richly deserved. Set in the vast, Three Valleys, the biggest ski area in the entire world, it offers unrivalled opportunities to skiers of all abilities and contrasting experiences, depending on where you stay. It is divided into 4 main resorts, with 1850 higher up the mountain (very pricey !) and the charming 1300 Le Praz which has retained much of its traditional charm but is not always blessed with such good snow as higher up the valley. Courchevel 1650 is, without question, a great place to go 'en famille' with an abundance of green and blue runs as well as some reds to challenge the more experienced. With most of the slopes over 1800m, the north facing aspect and the fantastic work that goes into grooming the pistes, not to mention artificial snow cannons, conditions are maintained to a high standard throughout the season.
