More Info

Located in the Savoie department, in southeastern France, Courchevel is part of the 3 Vallées ski area (together with Meribel and Val Thorens). Its backcountry terrain, within the boundaries of Vanoise National Park, includes some famous ski touring itineraries, including Col du Biaul and Mont Jovet. The region’s breathtaking beauty is one of the reasons the area was short-listed and eventually selected to host the 1992 Winter Olympics. Enjoy skiing down slopes through amazing forests and discover its steep couloirs with a professional guide who will show you all the best spots. Avalanches are not uncommon during this region, so be sure to bring the proper safety equipment.




Good to Know


What’s the weather like?

During the winter in Courchevel, the average daily temperature ranges from -4ºC to 0ºC. This increases slightly during the spring and decreases the higher in elevation you go. The area receives plenty of snowfall during the winter.

How long should I stay?

This depends on how much free time you have. Many guides offer single day backcountry excursions, but for the more adventurous skiers, there are longer options. About a week here will get you very well acquainted with the surrounding slopes and local resorts.
