Courchevel, a resort in the Tarentaise, is known as one of the most exclusive ski resorts in the French Alps.
It is known for its famous guests, including the British and Saudi royal families and celebrities such as the Beckhams. The price of many of the hotels and palaces reflects this exclusivity, and it is the only ski resort to boast not just 5 star, but 6 star properties.
The resort comprises 4 villages, all at different altitudes. However, with all the slopes being north-facing, the quality of the snow tends to be of the same high standard, no matter where you choose to stay. The lift pass covers all four resorts and this means visitors have access to the widest range of pistes. Among these, there are some of the best nursery slopes, as well as the most inviting advanced slopes in the region. This makes the resort ideal for beginners, experts and everyone in between.
For those looking to learn to ski during their holidays, the resort is ideal. It’s not just the quality of the nursery slopes, green runs and blue pistes, which are all excellent, but their easy accessibility. What’s more, for those looking to improve their performance, the range of reds and blacks offers plenty of opportunities to fine tune newly learned techniques.
For those looking for a more tailored learning experience, The Snow School in Courchevel is the obvious choice. Our highly trained, friendly instructors meet clients at 1850, which allows immediate access to the best slopes.
While Courchevel does have a reputation for being exclusive, once you’re here it’s easy to see why it is a magnet for those who can afford the best. The abundance of designer shops, restaurants and famous hangouts is one thing, but the pistes are world-class too. If you could choose to learn to ski anywhere in the world, why not do it here?
