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.

Jessy took good care of us. He contacted us in good time before our actual day. Super nice and skilled. We like to ski long days and so did Jessy. If we come back we will definetly contact Jessy again.

An amazing few days of skiing, ski touring and glacier exploring with Jessy. Jessy is a true professional, always alert, safety conscious and tailoring his trips to the ability of his clients - making for a great, memorable experience. (Photos included!). I have been ski-touring with guides for 16 years and would definitely choose Jessy again and recommend him to others.

Nous avons passé un bon moment avec Jessy dans les Trois Vallées. Nous avons fait du ski hors-piste et malgré la météo difficile, il nous a trouvé de belles décentes. Il est sympa, dynamique, prudent et il aime bien les nouvelles technologies dans le domaine du ski.

Deux journées top au milieu des 3 Vallées. Très attentif, Jessy s\'adapte au niveau du groupe et choisit les bonnes pentes. Il nous a fait découvrir de nouveaux coins loin des pistes et cela en toute sécurité. Merci Jessy, on s\'est éclaté et on a bien rigolé. Au fait, tes photos sont magnifiques.
