Courchevel is spread over five levels according to altitude: Saint Bon, Le Praz (1300 m), Courchevel village (1550 m), Courchevel Moriond (1650 m), Courchevel (1850 m) plus 14 little mountain hamlets nestled in the area. You are in one of the world's largest and one of the most prestigious ski areas with 600 km of ski slopes and 180 ski lifts. 13% are green trails, 39% blue, 38% red and 10% black runs. The ski slopes of the 3 Valleys lie between 1300 m and 3230 m above sea level and 85% of the ski area is above 1800m. There are 25 mountain peaks accessible by the ski lift infrastructure including 10 peaks over 2500m and 4 equipped glaciers.
Le Praz is nestled at the foothills of Courchevel and three valleys. It is a charming and authentic French Alpine village also known as Courchevel 1300. Le Praz is a fantastic location with year-round appeal, nice variety of restaurants, bars, shops and friendly atmosphere. The village is ideally located & you can access Courchevel 1850 directly via a 7-minute gondola ride or choose the chairlift that goes in the direction of the ski pistes that drop into La Tania or over towards Meribel valley. You are able to ski into le Praz throughout the ski season due to the snow cannons that service the ski pistes. There is also a regular free shuttle service throughout the day and late at night serving all stations of Courchevel (la Tania included) and the village of Bozel. There is a variety of bars and restaurants to chose from; burgers & beer, traditional Savoyard cuisine or even a Michelin star establishment. There is a lake for fishing in the summer. Le Praz is also an ideal location to start your cycling tours of the Alps & offers some great VTT tracks as well, don't forget the horse riding! The community is building a brand-new well equipped fitness centre not far from the world famous Olympic ski jump plus there are two golf courses, one in 1850 and one in Meribel.
The 4 closest airports to Le Praz are Lyon, Grenoble and Geneva, all about 180k. Chambéry airport is 100 km; Chambéry, (Flybe and Jet2), Lyon (Air France, bmibaby, BA, EasyJet, Bmi), Geneva (BA, easyJet, flybe, Jet2, Aer Lingus) and Grenoble (Ryanair, easyJet) is 180 km. The closest train station to the 3 valleys is in Moûtiers, which is 14km from Le Praz. There is regular seasonal bus transportation to and from Moutiers.
Three Valleys Ski Area
A beautiful place all year with highly defined seasons and quiet and tranquil out of the ski season when the crowds have gone home, and then suddenly once again each winter the mountains of the Three Valleys come alive with people enjoying this vast ski area..... the largest linked skiing in the world.
The Three Valleys ski domain provides more than 600km of runs and probably the same again off-piste. In fact it should now be called the Four Valleys with the link into Orelle (Maurienne Valley) which can be accessed by ski from Val Thorens. This has also opened up some extraordinary off-piste runs. The Three Valleys provides direct links between the ski resorts of St Martin de Belleville, Les Menuires, Val Thorens, Méribel, Mottaret, La Tania, Brides les Bains and the four Courchevel resorts, la Praz, 1550, 1650 and the world famous 1850 – and now Orelle, in the fourth valley - all under one ski pass offering on-piste skiing from 1300m all the way up to 3200m. As these figures show the Three Valleys ski area offers huge altitude differences favouring long run skiing.
It has an ultra efficient, state of the art ski lift system, quality piste preparation and a dense artificial snow making system (1920 snow cannons) complementing the excellent natural snow cover. However, if you are not a fan of downhill skiing or like some variety during your stay then you can also roam the domain at your leisure on foot, hiking along the marked trails, or using the pedestrian ski lift passes. Many trails have been created especially to enjoy the increasingly popular snowshoeing sport and to discover the valleys from a new perspective: flora, wildlife, monuments, and spectacular scenery.There are also many cross-country skiing tracks that are prepared and maintained each day. These allow you to take in the breathtaking scenery and provide the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the mountains away from the pistes.
An interesting and wonderful area all year round, there is much more here than the snow sports.
Courchevel 1550 Ski Resort
Courchevel 1550 is part of the Courchevel valley ski domain, based between Courchevel le Praz and Courchevel 1650. It has two lifts connecting it straight to Courchevel 1850 and the rest of the ski domain and nowhere in Courchevel 1550 is far from the lifts or the pistes. One of the real selling points of 1550 is that the Grangette ski lift runs into the evening, making that trip to 1850 apres ski or the famous luge ride very easily accessible from the resort. While the glitz and glamour of Courchevel 1850 are just minutes away, 1550 property prices tend to be a bit more reasonable and you can get more for your money when it comes to ski-to-doorstep apartments and chocolate box chalets.
The town centre has several shops, ski shops, cosy bars and some fantastic restaurants - L'Oeil de Boeuf at the bottom of the Tovets piste being one of the best (potatoes and shallots roasted in the open fire and served with THE most tender cote de boeuf...). It has plenty of buzz but also retains its mountain village charm at the same time. Several ski schools operate here, it is on the free ski bus route, there is a local tourist office and creche facilities. Equally, 1550 is superb in summer time with huge potential for walking and cycling from the town centre into the mountain pastures with the sound of cowbells everywhere.
There is also an indoor swimming pool and health centre currently under construction in 1550 - watch this space.
Courchevel 1550 is just 25 minutes from Moutiers, into which trains from London and Paris arrive frequently. The nearest airports are Geneva, Grenoble and Chambery - all within a 2 hour radius.
