3 valleys skiing area

Courchevel offers you a privileged site

Courchevel is a winter sports resort in the Tarentaise Valley located in the commune of Courchevel (until 2016, the municipality of Saint-Bon-Tarentaise), in the department of Savoie in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. First French station converted into a virgin site in 1946, it is part of the Trois-Vallées ski area.


The resort is organized around five villages: Saint-Bon-Tarentaise (chief town), Courchevel Le Praz (called before 2011 Courchevel 1300), Courchevel Village (formerly Courchevel 1500), Courchevel Moriond (formerly Courchevel 1650) and finally Courchevel (formerly Courchevel 1850). The latter, which gives its name to the station, is the first nucleus of development where the work of the urban architect Laurent Chappis and the engineer Maurice Michaud applies. This new urbanization of the mountain was the subject of an inscription in the supplementary inventory of historical monuments in 1998, and about thirty sites are protected as historical monuments.


The resort is not limited to the only winter season and its practices of skiing, it was equipped in particular with collective infrastructures of leisures and sports, like a water park opened in December 2015, and proposes other practices in connection with the mountain during the summer, with hiking or mountain biking, but also its international festival of pyrotechnic art or the contemporary art exhibition organization.

This is a group of 8 interconnected resorts (Courchevel, Méribel, Val Thorens, les Menuires, Saint-Martin de Belleville, La Tania, Brides-les-Baines and Orelle). They form the largest skiing area in the world. It offers more than 600km of slopes accessible with the same ski pass, 334 slopes, 166 ski lifts accessible for beginners all the way to experts as the largest champions from around the world come to train during the season.


You will find 43 fun zones and 9 sledging slopes. The snow is even guaranteed when the weather isn’t favourable thanks to more than 2000 snow cannons.


Because Courchevel is a resort that honours all types of sliding sports, you can also find tracks for snowmobiles, walking, snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, skijoring, snow scooters and fatbiking.

Lastly, an area entirely dedicated to freestyle is available for you to try or train depending on your level. The courses for jumping, skicross, a snowpark, rails and a halfpipe to test your tricks, will make you happy.

Courchevel and Méribelwill host the world championships in 2023

From 6th to 19th February 2023, Méribel and Courchevel will be organising the Alpine Skiing world cup. A windfall for both french resorts who were able to show their charm to the international federation of skiing and therefore win 9 of the 15 votes against the resort of Saalbach.
