A ski getaway is the best way to unwind when winter sets in. With snow-covered landscapes, sports outings and warm comfort food, a mountain vacation is sure to be unforgettable.

However, to make sure your stay is as relaxing as possible, it's essential to organize your holiday properly. Here's our advice on planning the perfect vacation in Courchevel.

Skiing essentials to improve your performance

When you're on holiday in the mountains, the most important thing is to equip yourself with the best equipment for hitting the slopes. Whether you prefer skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing, make sure you take all the necessary equipment with you on your vacation.

However, if you don't have your own ski equipment, or any other winter discipline, you can book equipment at the resort.

In Courchevel, you can rent your own pair of skis, snowboard or protective accessories such as helmets and boots.

Prepare your belongings in advance so you don't forget anything

At altitude, temperatures drop, and the humidity of the snow can be unpleasant if you're not dressed accordingly. So, before you leave, don't forget to pack warm, waterproof clothing that will isolate you from the cold during your long days on the slopes.

Among the most important items to pack are a ski suit, warm clothing and winter accessories such as a hat, gloves and lined socks.

It's also a good idea to pack sunglasses and sunscreen to protect you from UV rays on the slopes.

The finishing touch: book your ESF lessons

Mountain vacations are the perfect opportunity to hone your skills on the slopes. There's nothing like practicing alongside a qualified instructor who's enthusiastic about teaching you his or her sliding techniques.

In advance of your stay, book your skiing or snowboarding lessons with passionate instructors. They know Courchevel's slopes like the back of their hand, and will be delighted to take you out to discover the resort's best spots.

With tailor-made lessons, you'll be sure to progress at your own pace, in the most heavenly surroundings.
