Skiing in Courchevel

Great accommodation in a great location

Courchevel is amidst stunning scenery in Les Trois Vallees and links with Meribel and Mottaret, Val Thorens, Les Menuires and a number of other smaller villages, which are fun to ski to, if only for a well earned lunch. With 600 kilometres of pistes and over 200 ski lifts, the scope is unlimited. When the weather conditions are right, touring Les Trois Vallees across to Meribel, Mottaret, Val Thorens and Les Menuires offers an exhilarating days skiing. The Grand Couloir  is thought to be one of the ten most challenging runs in the world. The deep powder and steep black runs will also give enjoyment to the best of skiers..

For beginners there is a vast expanse of green and blue runs and there is a free beginners lift very close to the chalet.

For snow boarders the terrain is as demanding as one wants it to be and there are a number of competitions for those who want to test their ability.

There are a number of ski and boot hire shops in Courchevel Village but we have found that Intersport run by Bernard and Chantal have given particually good and reasonably priced services to our clients for the past ten years - they bend over backwards to help.  Skies are waxed and edged using a high-tech stone grinder each time they are hired out. 

We also can highly recommend ESF Couchevel.  They offer group lessons in English as well as individual lessons. For these the instructors will come to our Chalet and collect you.

A new British run ski school for experts  www.alpinemasters.co.uk  opened for the 2009 - 2010 Season. This particularly caters for advanced off-piste guiding.

There is also a brand new purpose built 300sq m creche with direct access to Club Piou Piou. This welcomes children from 18months to 12 years old. It is run by the ESF ski school. Children can remain there all day, mornings or afternoons, and is about 300 metres from the Chalet.

Jerome Lacoste runs Energy Ski, offering fun and technical ski lessons in private as well as small groups. Jerome is particularly good with teenagers who wish to be challenged!   He has previously worked with the ESF as well as other ski school companies.  He is also BASI qualified. Everyone who has a lesson loves it. Not only does he put you on video and give you the film, he has the most wonderful way of giving instruction. He has the best teaching and guiding technique we have every come across in 20 years of being in Courchevel and highly recommend him.
