Skiing in Courchevel Moriand


There are 2 ski lifts from Courchevel Moriand into Courchevel (1850), ensuring that easy access into the 3 Valleys is still possible and a day ski trip into the furthest resort of Val Thorens is well within reach.

The ski area above Courchevel Moriond has some lovely long green runs for Beginners to graduate to from the nursery slopes. Intermediates have a selection of blue and red runs to discover in the immediate area, including the lovely Chapelets run, before moving on to explore the rest of the local area. The slopes above Courchevel Moriond are wider and usually a little quieter than those higher on the mountain and there are some good areas for heading off-piste. There are also some great tree-lined runs for days when the weather closes in.

Courchevel Moriand is an attractive old village with quietly situated chalets, but it does offer a lively nightlife. It is also only a short bus journey from Courchevel 1850 for those wanting more evening entertainment during your ski holiday.
