Ski Holidays in Courchevel Village, France
Courchevel Village (formerly Courchevel 1550) is the quietest of the Courchevel resorts and the most affordable. Courchevel is a cluster of four resorts at the northern tip of the 3 Valleys ski area.
The 4 Courchevel resorts include:
Courchevel Le Praz
Courchevel Village (1550)
Courchevel Moriond (1650)
Courchevel Village is linked to Courchevel (1850) by both a cable car and a chairlift, as well as the free bus. This resort is great for families looking for a quieter base from which to explore the Courchevel ski area, or the wider 3 Valleys. Those wanting a night out can take advantage of the late-running bus service to spend an evening in Courchevel Moriond (1650) or Courchevel (1850).

Skiing in Courchevel Village
There is a huge variety of slopes, a terrain park and half pipe that will keep skiers and boarders entertained during a week skiing holiday in Courchevel. However, exploring the whole of the 3 Valleys ski area is easy thanks to the modern lift system of chairs and gondolas.
The small ski area directly above Courchevel Village is predominantly blue runs, with a couple of reds and greens. However, it is just a short cable car ride from here to Courchevel (1850) from where the mountain really opens up and skiers and boarders of all levels will find runs to enjoy.
The Wood Park on the Tovets run just above Courchevel Village (1550) has a selection of wooden rails and tables for freestylers. There is a 2 km toboggan run from Courchevel (1850) back to Courchevel Village (1550) which is floodlit in the evenings until 7.30pm.
