Resort Attractions

Courchevel is a place where you can try many activities that are rarely available anywhere else. You can take a French cookery course or learn to drive a piste basher for example.

But it also has an ‘Altiport’ – meaning a small altitude airstrip – where you can take flying lessons with one of two flying schools.
All kinds of courses are available including one hour introductory lessons (Costing a little over 150 Euros) with an instructor through to improvement or mountain flying classes for those who already have some flying experience.

Special classes are also available for young people aged from 14 to 21 yrs old who wish to preparing for their Aeronautic Brevet French mountain flight course.
Of course if you’d just like to look out of the window you can take tourists flights as short as 15 minutes for as little as 35 Euros per person (children under 12 half price) in a four seater Cessna 172, Jodel D 140 or Mousquetaire D 140 (with wheels and skis)

Shopping

Courchevel is a shopping Mecca, at least 1850 is, the opportunities at the lower bases are rather more limited.

At 1850 there are about 150 shops, many of them spread along the roadside through the resort. Along with all holiday essentials you will find high class fashion boutiques, galleries and jewellers.

Chic Altitude (Galerie du Forum; +33 (0) 479 08 32 36) is the place to buy Swarovski, Jean Paul Gaultier and Barbara Rihl. 1850 Parfum (Espace Diamant; +33 (0)4 79 08 39 84) is one of several parfumeries.

Several of the ski shops also sell the top brands, this time skiwear. Jean Blanc Sports (Rue Park City; +33 (0) 479 08 26 41; jeanblancsports.com) for example stocks brands including Bogner, Killy, Spyder and Sun Valley.
