Courchevel, 3 Valleys Surrounded by Winter
An old History
The start of Courchevel's history is often only known to its residents or to a handful of foreigners. From Bonneville to Allues, the old names of the resorts have been forgotten, the same tragedy befalling "Saint-Bon", however these 3 towns now make up the current 3 valleys, full of stories and intrigue.
Between the two world wars, Tovet's resort interested many people to start ski businesses, including Maurice Michaud and Laurent Chappis, two highway engineers. Their project was later delayed by the Second World War, and so the real beginning of the current Courchevel 1850
started in 1946, when Jean Blanc (a former French skiing champion) joined the two engineers’ highway project, following the agreement of the plan by the town council of Saint-Bon.
A Ski Resort For All
Thanks to more than 90 miles of slopes, including 19 green ski slopes, 35 blue, 34 red and 8 black, the 58 chairlifts of Courchevel make discovering its ski area easy for all levels and styles, beginning from 32 euros a day.
Where to stay?
Irrespective of its ski area, Courchevel is well bestowed with prestigious hotels
such as Le Chabichou
, Le Kilimandjaro
