Courchevel is split over 4 levels ranging from 1300 to 1850 guaranteeing snow throughout the season. Not only can you ski here, you can also take your chances on the thrilling luge course which runs from 1850 down to 1550 or if you'd prefer to relax and unwind head to the brand new Aquamotion Centre in 1650. All resort villages are linked by an efficient and frequent free bus service and enjoy pretty woodland settings. From the slopes above there are good views to Mont Blanc and over the valley to Champagny and Bellecote in the La Plagne ski area.

However, it's not the just skiing people come for in Courchevel, The Aquamotion centre below Moriond (1650) is hugely popular with holiday makers and is packed with features such as indoor and outdoor pools, a diving pool, surfing area with a spectacular wave, three lane water slide, wild water rapids, saunas, steam room, hot tub and climbing wall. Endless fun for all ages.

What's Happening?

It's finally arrived! The Ariondaz gondola from Courchevel Moriond (1650) to Bel Air in the heart of the ski area will be in place for 2017/18. The old 6 person cabins will be replaced by smart new 8 seaters, and it’s the first gondola in France to be lit using power from on-board solar panels. It has twice the hourly capacity of the old gondola, reducing peak morning lift queues, and the ride time will be cut from 12 minutes to seven!
