A must-see resort in the 3 Valleys area, Courchevel is the ideal destination for all winter sports enthusiasts.

With beginners' areas and world-renowned technical slopes, you'll enjoy an ideal playground for all levels.

Among the resort's 11 green runs, 14 blue runs, 15 red runs and 6 black runs, we've selected 3 fun runs to try out during your stay in Courchevel!

1/ The Folyères blue ski slope

Away from the crowds, this blue run offers a real escape. In the heart of a spruce forest, you'll find yourself in an area where there's little traffic, so you can take full advantage of the Alpine scenery and practice your carving skills, without gaining too much speed thanks to the gentle slope of this run.

Whatever the weather, you'll be immersed in a Nordic ambience that's sure to create enchanting memories with family and friends.

When you arrive at La Tania, we recommend you continue your adventure by taking the Bouc Blanc chairlift up to Les Chenus. You can then take the Anémones blue run before following the Lac Bleu run.

It's a wide, undulating slope with a bird's-eye view of the resort and the surrounding Savoyard landscape.

2/ The Chapelets ski slope

To the east of the Courchevel ski area, bordering the Vallée des Avals, this red run offers a timeless experience. Starting at an altitude of 2,250 m, you'll feel like you're all alone in the world as you make your way to Courchevel Moriond.

Between the forest and the emblematic view of the Dent du Villard, you're sure to discover unique sensations on the Chapelets piste this winter.

The same color, but different emotions, the Combe de la Saulire ski slope is a must-see during your stay in Courchevel 1850.

For 3 km, you'll alternate between gentle and steady slopes for a pleasure that can be enjoyed on skis or snowboard. It's an opportunity not only to descend 700 m in altitude, but also to explore the western part of the resort.

3/ The black ski slope of the Grand Couloir

Never groomed, the Grand Couloir run is one of the resort's Ski & Challenge zones. A veritable high-mountain mogul wall, accessed via a narrow ridge. While this itinerary is aimed at the most daring and seasoned skiers, it promises breathtaking sensations.

With its exceptional views and technical route, we invite the curious expert to take the plunge into this vertiginous couloir for an unparalleled experience.

Continuing your descent, you can also ski the Jean-Blanc black ski slope, which starts at the top of the Plantrey chairlift.

Named after one of the founders of the Courchevel resort, this narrow, winding ski slope is a former World Cup descent, and will not only get you to Le Praz, but also, and above all, prolong the pleasure of your day on the slopes!
