Courchevel Moriond 1650 offers a mix of energy, laid back skiing and seasonaire hangouts sprinkled with a little glamour overspilling from the luxurious 1850.
Self catered apartments for the frugal and luxury chalets for the family bolster the expanding village to suit all budgets.
Those that are self-catering grab your supplies from supermarkets or pick up some pocket snacks to keep you fueled. A stroll around the village in the evening gives you a choice of restaurants including local cuisine aka fondue and raclette.
Numerous ski rental shops dot around the village or order a ski rental delivery direct to your chalet. Equipment specialists are ready to custom fit your ski boots or perfectly tune your gear.
After a day on the slopes relax in the sunny snow front bars. If you're looking for a lively apres-ski then check out seasonaire hotspots in the centre of the village. Live DJ sets kick off from 10pm and on into the night at the Funky Fox. Be careful, as you’re likely to bump into your chalet hosts here once they sneak off after dinner service.
The Aquamotion swimming pool and spa lies below the village, either a 15 minute walk or a quick bus ride away. It is the perfect option for an afternoon if the weather is not favourable.
The Ski Area
The serene north-facing slopes give exquisite snow conditions remaining untouched at the south edge of The Three Valleys.
For leisurely skiers, the pistes consist of long merciful motorways, some steeper undulating roller-coaster red runs and, for the adventurers, ample easily accessible backcountry.
Check out runs like Chapelets and Belair for almost guaranteed empty pistes. The lower altitude produces tree skiing and open faces, so get a local guide and find the secret snow spots.
