Courchevel has some interesting terrain, think ridges, gullies and some trees and a well maintained park with solid facilities, but the main attraction is the wide, smooth pistes. You do have to share it with the proper ski bunnies though and it’s more high street posers than really high end, though the prices are high end. But if you’re a speed purist it may be worth it for you.

The way it works is by height, it’s all Courchevel, but at different altitudes. Courchevel 1850 is the most expensive and closest to the choice runs, but 1650 has some good ones as well.

Though the terrain is perfect for beginners you have to pay too much to make it a destination of choice for learners, unless Mummy and Daddy are paying of course.
