Courchevel 1850


Sophisticated, chic and expensive. The highest and most famous of the Courchevel

resorts was founded from scratch in 1946 and was the first purpose built ski resort.

Since the beginning 1850 has been the preferred ski destination of the rich and

famous French who, over the years, have been joined by growing numbers of

wealthy visitors from Britain, Russia and more recently the glamour of Bollywood

and the new money of China.


Courchevel 1650


Situated on a sunny plateau above the Vallée des Avals,1650 is a great all-round resort that has worked hard to come out of the shadow of 1850. It offers visitors a great base to enjoy, what some consider to be, the best skiing for the valley, as long as you’re not looking for a direct link into the rest of the 3 Vallées.


Courchevel 1550


1550 is growing up fast, and whilst it initially aimed at the family market, there has been a gradual shift towards capitalising on those who can’t quite afford 1850, but want something more exciting for their money. Each year it adds to its accommodation, restaurants and bars and along with 1650, is constantly seeking to upgrade its rating. Joined to 1850 by a 6 person chair you are in danger of getting caught in first the queues out of 1550, only to then join the rush of 1850.


Both 1650 and 1550 have a low key, 2 month, summer season which focuses on the types of mountain activities that appeal to nature lovers.


Le Praz 1300


Le Praz is a charming resort, remaining a traditional mountain village at its heart with wood and stone chalets. Whilst the chalets have become spread out over the years, the centre remains full of character with old buildings and narrow streets. It has a small lake as its focus next to which the two ski lifts are situated. These can become hectic at peak weeks, but seasonaires know it’s just a matter of timing your departure. Occasionally, at the start and end of the season, the slopes back to the village can become icy or patchy but you are able to catch the bubbles down.


St Bon


St Bon at 1100 remains a small hamlet virtually free of the mass tourism of the higher resorts. A couple of years ago it had a piste made back to the village enabling its residents to ski home, prior to which only the brave ventured the off-piste run back.
