Destination Courchevel

The fancy ski resort of Courchevel is located in the Trois Vallees area. The French Trois Vallees is the biggest ski resort in the world with its 600km (375 miles) of slopes, 130km of Cross Country trails, 1500 snow canons, 360 ski patrollers and 1,200 lift attendants. The choices of where to go in this area are overwhelming. All the villages are well connected and easy accessible. The ski arena is so big that you can ski for thousands of vertical feet without ever having to take the same lift and sometimes even without seeing another soul on the slopes. The size of this area is breathtaking and the scenery spectacular, no where else in the world can you find an area which is so big but at the same time so accessible for everyone. The world's largest cable car, heading up to La Saulire connects Courchevel to the rest of the Les Trois Vallees area.

Courchevel was France's first real jet-set resort. It was created to give the rich and famous a winter alternative for Cannes and St. Tropez. The original village of Courchevel, Le Praz is situated at 1300 meters altitude. This village is the quaintest of the 5 villages. From Courchevel you have direct access to the ski lift and to some hotels you can ski back all the way to the front door after a long and enchanting day in winter wonderland.
