A Review Of The Courchevel Ski Resort
Courchevel refers to both a region and a number of towns. The towns were named after their altitude in meters: Courchevel 1300 (Le Praz – the original village), Courchevel 1550, Courchevel 1650 (Moriond), and Courchevel 1850. However, Courchevel 1850 is in reality only 1747 meters but it was named 1850 for marketing reasons to compete with Val d’Isere.
Courchevel is a world famous resort and rightly so, given its location at the Eastern end of the gargantuan ski area of Les Trois Vallées. It has 600 kilometres of piste which stretch from the Mont Blanc massif in the North to the Les Ecrins massif in the south.
