Perfection, on the piste of Courchevel 02 Apr 2024

Perfection, on the piste of Courchevel

As winter comes to an end, it's the perfect time to discover the many feedbacks from our customers. Let's head for the snowy peaks of Courchevel, to the Manali Lodge! Thank you all for this winter season.
 
Amie, vacationing at the Manali Lodge with her friends and family, gives us some wonderful feedback on her stay: 
 
« Because of its ski-in ski-out location, the privacy offered by its luxurious suites and its reputation for offering an exemplary level of service, we chose the Manali Lodge in Courchevel, for our vacation. Our signature Kinabalu suite features five beautiful bedrooms and four stunning bathrooms with more than enough space to accommodate our group of 10 skiers. It’s on the top floor, affording us incredible views across the mountains, which of course are best enjoyed from the comfort of the private hot tub!

Our perfect ski day begins at 8am in the beautiful living room where I discover several delicious breakfast dishes have been delivered by the Manali Lodge team. The children enjoy the fresh pastries before we head down to the ski shop to collect all of our equipment. You may not have considered the benefit of having an on-site ski shop; the convenience is incredible. The team at Gilbert Sports are experts in preparing and fitting our equipment, it’s ready and waiting for us and we hit the slopes at around 9.15am, which is record breaking time.

The dedicated and highly experienced Manali concierge team have prepared a ski itinerary in advance for us. He’s taken account of our ability levels and he knows we want to see as much of the ski area as possible this morning; conditions are perfect here in Courchevel and we’re excited to begin. At the front terrace we descend on our skis, taking the Ariondaz telecabine before heading towards Courchevel La Tania on the Folyères blue piste.
The snow-covered fir trees along the way feel like a true winter wonderland. The Alpine Residences team planned our ski lift passes in advance for us, so we board the telecabine with ease, direction the famous Col de la Loze. At this breathtaking altitude - 2,304m - it’s possible to enjoy the view across the 3 Vallees and it’s easy to imagine the approach of the peloton as the col has host a stage finish of Le Tour de France. From here we take a fun combination of red and blue slopes to reach the Family Park, just above Courchevel 1850. Did we all dare to try the big air bag? Of course we did! Much fun was had and memories were certainly made.
 
 
 
The ski lift network in Courchevel is both fast and efficient. Before we know it, we’re at the highest point in Courchevel, the magnificent Saulire at 2740m. The descent on the Chanrossa side is both challenging and fun before we make our way back to Manali Lodge via the Piste des Indiens. It’s been an incredible morning and we’re delighted to discover a sun-drenched table waiting for us on the piste-side terrace at Bistrot Manali when we return. The ‘little skiers menu’ featuring Angus beef burger or trout fillet accompanied by pasta, vegetables or fries was the perfect refuel for the little ones in our ski group before the departed for an action-packed afternoon in the Club ESF, the meeting point for which is just next door to Manali Lodge.

Personally, I don’t love to ski all day. I like a challenging, intensive morning ski but there’s so much more to a mountain resort than simply exploring the pistes; this is especially true when Manali Lodge is your base. With the children entertained by their wonderful instructors for the afternoon, we take the private Manali shuttle to explore the finest shopping Courchevel can offer; before returning to the sumptuous and elegant Spa Manali for an energetic massage with Gemology stones and a relaxing dip in the pool.
 
 
 
At around 4pm the children’s lessons conclude and we’re reunited by the fireplace in our Kinabalu suite for afternoon tea.
We still have some energy left to start the evening, so we head for Moriond Racing, a short cable car ride from Manali Lodge, under the guidance of Manon Scapula, site manager. At the Moriond Racing just a short cable car ride from Manali Lodge, we discover a 3km-long toboggan run that features hairpins, tunnels, switchbacks and more. The race track guarantees smiles all round and it absolutely delivers. We're having a wonderful time as a family.
 
 
 
All that remains to conclude this most perfect day on the pistes of Courchevel is a sublime dining experience at Gaïa. Gaïa is an Asian fusion restaurant within Manali Lodge and the menu is packed with sushi, tatami and yakitori delights accompanied by expertly prepared cocktails. Is there a better way to end a day in the mountains? I think not. »

We offer our guests a full range of hotel-style services, including a dedicated concierge team, swimming pool, private spa, private parking and more.
