The number of lifts and the sheer scale of the skiing in Courchevel are simply staggering. Mere statistics mean nothing, you have to see it for yourself. It is worth noting that Courchevel is the most easterly of the region, a major fact to bear in mind when searching for sunshine or north facing slopes. A network of gondolas and cable cars will take you up to 2378m Saulire.
You can either ski down the far side to Meribel and further into the trios vallees, or return towards Courchevel. For advanced skiers and riders, the black Les Suisses is excellent. In the right snow conditions it is possible to ski from Saulire all the way down to Bozel, below Courchevel – a vertical drop of over 2000m.
Snowboarders will find a good supply of natural hits throughout Courchevel. The terrain park and Plantrey has a half pipe. Courchevel also has a number of British Ski Instructors.
