Known for its stylish atmosphere, shops and top class restaurants, Courchevel Ski Resort is always looking to modernise its facilites and infrastructure. Here are some of the new additions for this winter season:
The ski resort
The resort welcomes a new 10-seater gondola lift which links Courchevel le Praz to the centre of Courchevel 1850 in under 6 minutes. Entry and exit points have been re-designed to make it easier for pedestrians.
A freeride area is opening this year: les Creux Noirs features a powder snow laboratory called the Freeride LAB. And the playground? Two red runs and a black run which will be left ungroomed, but made safe. Thrill seekers, this spot is for you!
We’ve been talking about the Alpinium for several years now. Otherwise referred to as a ‘real challenge’ by the Construction Manager for Gibello, it is set to open this forthcoming season.
The main aim of the complex is to reduce inter-resort vehicle traffic and to modernise facilities in the resort. Located lower down in Courchevel le Praz, it features:
– a two-storey car park for 500 cars
– an indoor electric karting circuit (open from May to November)
– sports facilities on the roof with a sports arena and a track around the site for walking, rollerblading and roller-skiing
– a 350m2 multimedia library
– a gondola lift station (mentioned above)

With a surface area of 3000m2, the new Courchevel Sports Club is set to open its doors in 2023.
Works to modernise Courchevel Ski Resort continue each year to ensure your holiday is an unforgettable one. The prestigious status of the resort and its facilities resulted in it being selected to host the Alpine World Ski Championships 2023 alongside Méribel. A brilliant way to celebrate Courchevel’s sports DNA, as highlighted by Perrine Pelen, General Manager of the Organising Committee.
