The French ski resort of Courchevel is part of the Three Valleys Ski Area with access to 600km of downhill skiing, with 497 individual pistes, served by 200 ski lifts. In addition to the skiing in Courchevel itself (150km of pisted ski runs), the appropriate ski Lift Pass will allow you to ski or snowboard in the other Three Valleys ski resorts of La Tania, Les Menuires, Méribel, Saint Martin de Belleville and Val Thorens.

 

Courchevel's skiing is considered amongst the world's best and has extensive marked trails for all standards as well as excellent off-piste opportunities with one of the many professional guides. The ski area is especially pleasant having one of the highest tree-lines in the Alps, up at 2300 metres (just over 7500 feet).

 

It boasts one of the largest armies of ski and snowboarding instructors in the world, over 550 of them teaching all levels of all snow sports dis-ciplines and each able to speak a number of languages. The six ski schools include three branches of the ESF (Ecole du ski Français & Supreme Ski School) at 1850, 1650 and 1550. Most unusual is the Supreme Ski School which employs British ski instructors who are qualified to both British and French standards and approved by the French Ministry of Youth and Sport.
