Courchevel has the reputation as the world's best ski resort.

This renowned resort in the French Alps takes full advantage of its exceptional natural environment, providing intense satisfaction to winter-sport enthusiasts with downhill skiing, snowboarding, back-country ski touring, climbing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, and more... Courchevel's ski area, as an integral part of the greater 3 Valleys ski domain, is a wonderfully unique playground.   

Tucked into the heart of the world's biggest ski area—the 3 Valleys, which also comprises the resorts of Val Thorens, Les Menuires, Méribel, La Tania and Bride-les-Bains—Courchevel is a bona fide natural park, with conifer forests climbing to an elevation of 2000m, vast expanses of powder as far as the eye can see, and sumptuously long descents such as that of La Saulire from 2738m, or the Aiguille du Fruit from 3051m, both challenging slopes that flare out into untamed bowls...

The breadth of the ski area and the diversity of its natural landscapes supply skiers with endless discoveries and continuous delight. 

Wide slopes and slim couloirs, some of which carve through wooded mountainsides, endlessly long runs, snowy valleys, seemingly infinite vertical...

Without a doubt, Courchevel is blessed by its exceptional natural setting.
