It’s said that happiness is doubled when shared, and in the alpine ski resort Courchevel, there are 1001 pleasures and experiences for you to make memorable moments together. Here are our top five:
For beginners there are excellent Easy Rider zones in the ski resort: enclosed spaces, dedicated lifts (often free), gentle, wide slopes – it’s the best way to learn to start skiing without worry.
For families, there are fun play areas. Discover the world of the Incas and the mysteries of the Sacred Mountain at Le Family Park ... In the wild west canyon, follow in the footsteps of Yepa the young and brave Indian. After a pleasant descent on the wide track at Western Ski Park, meet Pearl of the Moon and try on some Native American headdresses.
If you and your friends are up for a challenge, then head on up to the steepest track of the 3 Vallées, the Grand Couloir... Or surf the soft white powder at the new Freeride Lab at Creux Noirs.
When the slopes close in the evening, gather at the start of the toboggan run at Courchevel 1850 and swap your skis for a sledge. Take an exciting 2 km ride on an enchanting illuminated track through the heart of the forest …
Good to know: the Grangettes gondola is free from the slopes closing to 7.20pm, a good reason to enjoy as many rides as you want!
Swimming, climbing, massage, surfing, diving, relaxing ... At Aquamotion it’s all about fun for the whole family. While your little water babies discover the colorful Baby Pool, older kids can have fun and thrills in the canyon or on the slides. Meanwhile you can immerse yourself in a steaming outer lagoon in the snow ...
And if you want more watery fun, why not indulge in a spot of surfing, wakeboarding, plunge into the dive pool, or join in the aquatic games. It gives a whole new meaning to surfing in the mountains!
Want to enjoy nature at its most spectacular? Pop on your snowshoes and plunge into the heart of the forest at Lake La Rosière. This mountain setting is a well-hidden treasure and only revealed to nature lovers who head “into the wilderness”. Recharge your batteries and appreciate the wonderful natural beauty as you wander the shores of the lake before stopping for a gourmet break at Lake La Rosière’s chalet-buvette. You’re guaranteed some wow moments here.
Don't forget your sunglasses! For a sublime sunny stop with panoramic views over the Avals Valley, the Vanoise massif and its glaciers plus the dazzling Dents de la Portetta, head to the top of the Signal chairlift. There you will find the most perfect place for a picnic. Afterwards make your descent via the magnificent Chapelets Trail at the far end of the 3 Vallées.
