Tobogganing – This is a MUST!!!

The run's departure point is located at the edge of the Tovets ski run in Courchevel 1850 and its arrival point is in Courchevel 1550.  Access to the sled run is provided by the Grangettes gondola, from Courchevel 1550. This is free for anyone with a lift pass and without a valid pass, each ride on the lift is €8.50 and the run is open from 9am - 7:30 pm.
You really must try this throughout your stay, we would recommend going within the first few days, as you will love it so much that you will want to go back every night! 


Ice Skating – Get your skates on!

Every ski resort typically has an ice rink but not all ski resorts have an Olympic ice rink. It was built for the 1992 Winter Games, and you can now watch regular ice hockey matches as well as getting your skates on and taking a spin around the rink.

Located in the Forum building in 1850, it is open every day from 1500 - 1900 and from 2100 - 23:00 on Wednesdays and Fridays. It may open at an earlier time of 1400 on days when the weather is poor.
