COURCHEVEL IS MULTI-FACETED
5 VILLAGES, 5 ATMOSPHERES, AND MAGIC EVERYWHERECourchevel should be discovered village by village. There are 5 of them which unveil themselves to visitors as they wind their way up the pretty mountain road.
Saint Bon, the birthplace of Courchevel, at an altitude of 1100 m
The story of Courchevel began in Saint Bon, the original village. The Lac Bleu, the first hotel to be built in the resort, has been welcoming guests since 1925. While there are no ski lifts leaving from the village, a free shuttle service runs every 20 minutes to the heart of the ski area from where skiers can return to Saint Bon along a red ski run.
Courchevel Le Praz, a discreet charm
An authentic mountain village with its traditional houses, chalets and narrow streets, Le Praz has managed to preserve its incredible charm and a real village life which is very much in evidence 365 days a year. It is the bastion of ski jumping with its majestic Olympic jumps. As for alpine skiing, those who enjoy skiing through forests will love the run linking Le Praz directly with Courchevel 1850.
Courchevel Village, a young spirit
A part of the resort which is most definitely family-orientated offering excellent value for money, fast and direct access to Courchevel 1850, as well as the whole of the 3 Valleys ski area. The toboggan run which leaves from 1850 and finishes in 1550 is a thrilling ride for adults and children alike!
Courchevel Moriond, a festive character
The first ski tow was created in Moriond (the original name of this level of the resort), a sector which basks in the sun thanks to its location on a ledge set back from the relief. The ski area of Courchevel 1650 is predominantly made up of green and blue runs. The combination of these two features makes the resort particularly popular with families. Conviviality is order of the day and the après-ski is particularly appreciated thanks to the wide variety of activities on offer!
