Beginners Cross country Atmosphere
—Intermediate Snowboard/freestyle Après-ski/events

Great ski area for all levels

You CAN find reasonable prices (if you look really hard)
Crazy traffic in the resort centre
Maybe too big of a resort if you have very young children

Tips from Crystal on Courchevel

We spent a week at Courchevel 1850 during February half-term with our children aged 7 and 10. Great ski resort with lots to do for the kids, cinema, luge, climbing wall, skating rink and the Family Park, which they really enjoyed. Only thing was it was crowded due to the French school holidays, if you can go outside those dates you're better off.

Great skiing, great access to three valleys. not great night life, more fairly friendly, over priced

Excellent skiing but the resort and nightlife is disappointing and very over priced. Excelletn ski schools who all speak English! Found the food quite average compared to other resorts. Hated the bus service. However the skiing is good.

Beautiful place, Fantastic skiing

I have always stayed in Méribel before which although I think it has better aprés ski has not a patch on the beauty of Courchevel. The lifts are queue free at the bottom making it just so easy to get up and go and get onto the mountain as early as y...
