With the lift pass "Courchevel" you have access to 150 km of diverse pistes. Numerous green and blue pistes offer beginners a wonderful chance to try out and get to love skiing. The pistes and lessons are to be found rather in the lower and more forested areas, which offers protection against wind and snow. But also the more advanced and free riders will find perfect conditions higher up the mountain: The red and black pistes offer many opportunities for fun and diversity. For a real kick of adrenaline we recommend the run down steep mountain side at the Saulire. Furthermore Courchevel offers a special treat for free stylers with its "Woodpark", located at the Plantrey chair lift.
For pros and experts we recommend the upgrade to the "Les 3 Vallées" lift pass (see ski region).
