While in winter the resorts may offer world-class skiing and incredible gastronomy, in the summer the Three Valleys are an Alpine paradise, offering beautiful weather, breath-taking views and so many activities it’s impossible to be bored.

Courchevel and Méribel’s brand new cycling col is officially open for business! As well as being the first mountain pass to be cleared of snow this summer, it’s also dedicated exclusively to cyclists so you can spend more time enjoying the views and less time looking out for cars. The col hosted its first cycling event on the 12th May and is set to host plenty more over the course of the summer, from both Courchevel and Méribel. Col de la Loze is the first stage of the Via 3 Vallées project, a network of roads reserved just for cyclists that will connect the Tarentaise and Maurienne valleys and pass through the resorts of Courchevel, Meribel, Les Menuires and Val Thorens.

Hundreds of kilometres of pistes, just for you

One of the reasons spring skiing in Courchevel is so great is that the resorts of the Three Valleys have started to quieten down a bit. Even during the Easter holidays, you’re guaranteed to see less lift lines than you will during the Christmas or February half term holidays. That leaves you free to explore the Three Valleys at your leisure, plus it means the pistes stay in better condition throughout the day, so it’s a win, win.

Great Snow Conditions

With so much skiable area, starting at 600m and topping out at 3,230m, spring skiing in Courchevel means you’re pretty much guaranteed good snow conditions. While lower resorts might feel the effect of the spring sun, there are lots of opportunities to stay at nice and high in the Three Valleys and enjoy everything the mountains have to offer.
 
 
Bistrot Manali – piste-side luxury and quite possibly the best terrace in Courchevel! Bistrot Manali will be open for business next winter.

Wonderful Weather

If there was ever time to enjoy long lunches and leisurely late-afternoon cocktails on the terraces of Courchevel’s amazing mountain restaurants, it’s in the spring. Warm, sunny weather and longer evenings make spring skiing in Courchevel a total delight. And don’t forget about sunny après ski down in the resorts, or evening drinks on the balcony! If you’re not skiing, the warm spring weather is also great for exploring the resort and some of its hiking trails.

Lots of Events

It’s not unreasonable to think that there’s not much going on at the end of the season in a ski resort, but in Courchevel it’s another story. There’s SO much to do Courchevel in the spring, from brand new end-of-season musical celebration, the Folie Douce Festival, to Courchevel Gaming Week.

Courchevel celebrates ten years of L’Art au Sommet

Courchevel puts on some truly spectacular events across the winter season, from World Cup ski races to international fireworks festivals. But perhaps one of the best, and one that can be viewed all winter long, is l’Art au Sommet, a spectacular outdoor art exhibition displayed throughout the resort and across the pistes.

L’Art au Sommet is completely free and a great way to get acquainted with Courchevel, adding a little culture and metropolitan atmosphere to a traditional Alpine setting. Whether you’re exploring the pistes or taking a walk through Courchevel 1850, it’s fantastic to come across one of these visually impressive sculptures in the middle of the mountains.

This winter is a particularly special Art au Sommet, as the event is celebrating its tenth birthday. At its conception, Courchevel teamed up with Galeries Bartoux to bring the visual pleasures of art and sculpture to the Alps. Galeries Bartoux is a family-run collection of art galleries that originated in Honfleur, a French city famous for its painting. It has since expanded to Megève, Courchevel, Paris, New York and even Singapore. While Galeries Bartoux specialise in contemporary art, they also display a fine collection of surrealist works by Salvador Dali, as well as selections from influential figures such as Francis Bacon and Damien Hirst.

For the very first Art au Sommet, Galeries Bartoux and Courchevel featured a selection of surrealist sculptures by Salvador Dali, including his famous melting clocks. For the tenth edition of the exhibition Dali is returning. Word-renowned sculptures such as Alice in Wonderland and the Profile of Time will be available to view for free in different internal and external locations around Courchevel 1850. Le Croisette in the centre of Courchevel will also house an exhibition dedicated to ten years of L’Art au Sommet, including three giant pieces of Dali-inspired street art, and live visual performances throughout the winter.

Joining the works of Dali in the exhibition is a collection by Richard Orlinski, a pop culture-influenced sculptor and artist whose large and colourful gorillas, wolves and horses are becoming synonymous with the landscape of les Trois Vallées. Orlinski believes art should be accessible to everyone. In fact, he built his career on displaying his works to the the public for free, making his sculptures the perfect fit for L’Art au Sommet. Orlinski’s works can be viewed at the top of the the Chenus, Saulire and Vizelle gondolas, as well as at the top of the Biollay and Pralong chairlifts.

If you’ve visited Courchevel already there’s no doubt you’ve seen this incredible collection either on the slopes or in resort. But if you’re headed out to Courchevel soon, be sure to pay all the sculptures a visit. L’Art au Sommet is an exceptional treat for skiers and art-lovers alike, and is just one of many events and spectacles that makes Courchevel stand out as one of the world’s most progressive ski resorts.

We currently have a range of luxury piste-side properties under construction in Courchevel and les Trois Vallees, from cosy one-bedroom apartments to expansive penthouses. Get in touch or view our website for more details.

What’s new in Courchevel this winter?

Now that it’s November, the leaves have almost all but come off the trees and the evenings are closing in, it’s time to start really start thinking about winter. And what better way to start than with a healthy dose of what’s new in Courchevel for the 2018 / 19 season? Courchevel is one of Alpine Lodges’ original resorts, and it just keeps getting better and better. Ideally situated at the edge of the Three Valleys, there’s always something new to get excited about in the winter, be it a new lift or another fun attraction. Here’s what we can look forward to this winter.



Free Aquamotion Pass with Your Lift Ticket

Staying in Courchevel Moriond this winter? This is the offer for you! If you buy a lift pass for the duration of two days or more, you’ll get one free entry to the amazing Aquamotion water park. With plenty of water-based fun, spa facilities and fitness options for adults and kids, Aquamotion is one of the best places to spend an evening. Many of our Three Valleys developments are in Courchevel Moriond, which is within easy walking distance of Aquamotion!

Ariondaz by Night XXL

Another treat for Courchevel Moriond-dwellers. Every year Courchevel hosts the Festival International d’Art Pyrotechnique, an international fireworks competition, where the best fireworks artists in the world compete against each other by putting on spectacular displays to the public. This year, Courchevel invites to a night of festive night skiing on the Ariondaz gondola in Courchevel Moriond to watch the fireworks from the slopes. Could you imagine a more perfect evening? Since last year, there’s a public vote, so you can have your say on Facebook about which fireworks you thought were the best, and the winner will receive a public choice award !



New Grangettes Gondola

Courchevel’s latest addition to the piste map is a shiny new replacement of the Grangettes gondola. Taking skiers and pedestrians from Courchevel Village at 1550m to Courchevel 1850 and providing all-important access to higher terrain, more shops and restaurants, and one of the resort’s longest sledging runs, the new Grangettes takes two minutes, thirty five seconds to reach Courchevel 1850 and transports over 2400 people per hour. That’s over twice as fast and over three times as more people than the old model. The new ten-seater Grangettes will be open from 08:35am until 7:20pm.

Automatic Chairlift Selfies

If you’ve always tried to take pictures of your ski crew on the chairlift, you’ll know how difficult it is to get everyone in shot and not drop your phone! This year, Courchevel has taken all the hassle out of chairlift selfies by adding an automatic camera to the Biollay chairlift. It takes your picture on the way up and you can view and collect it when you get to the top. Genius !



FIS Ladies Alpine Ski World Cup: Slalom Returns to Courchevel

The Ladies Alpine Ski World Cup is a major event in the ski racing circuit, but also a huge event for Courchevel. After hosting the giant slalom seven times, and slalom three times, both events are returning to Courchevel over the course of one weekend, bringing with them double the competition and double the fun. This year will be the first time Courchevel has hosted a singles slalom (last year it held a parallel slalom race) event since 2013 so we’re very excited! Courchevel also announced at the end of last winter that it’s going to be hosting the 2023 Alpine World Ski Championships, a huge honour in the ski racing world and an event that’s sure to bring lots of new visitors to the resort!

Green Initiatives in Courchevel Moriond

This is something you might not notice over the winter, but will definitely improve your views come summer! Courchevel has been busy realising its biodiversity objectives and last summer spent lots of time re-seeding the areas of Courchevel Moriond that were affected by development in the ski area. The new seeds are local to the area and have been specially developed to withstand the Alpine climate, so look out for more green spaces when the snow starts to melt!


We currently have two properties under construction in Courchevel. Canyon Lodge, a collection of three premium chalets, and Manali Lodge, a piste side development of fifteen luxury apartments with an in-house spa, pool, restaurant and ski shop. For more information and the chance to reserve off-plan, get in touch with our team.

Launching Manali Lodge, Courchevel

We’re delighted to announce the launch of our newest development, Manali Lodge, in the heart of one of the Three Valley’s most exciting villages, Courchevel Moriond. Offering true ski in / ski out access that’s just a stone’s throw from the town centre, Manali Lodge is a fantastic renovation project that will see the existing Hotel Manali converted into fifteen luxurious apartments. Ranging from 95m² two-bedroom apartments to a 500m² penthouse, Manali Lodge will provide not only the best in home comforts but also the full array of exclusive in-house services Alpine Lodges is renowned for.



Alongside a luxurious and spacious Alpine home, Manali Lodge residents will also enjoy a 24-hour concierge service, spa and wellness area, in-house gym, ski rental shop, bar and restaurant. Buyers wanting to tap in to Courchevel’s booming rental market will also find that we offer customised options that allow you to maximise your property both as a rental location and a home.



Hotel Manali offered five-star luxury at the foot of the pistes, having only been built ten years ago, and we’re incredibly excited to be able to offer upscale living spaces in such a sought-after central location. In keeping with the traditional style of the village, the Manali Lodge apartments will combine charming Alpine architecture with modern finesse and the latest home technology. As always with Alpine Lodges properties, our design team will work with you to create your ideal spaces, be they for personal or rental purposes.



Courchevel Moriond known as the sunniest resort in the Three Valleys, and is home to a wide range of terrain to suit everyone from complete beginners to seasoned adrenaline junkies. You’ll benefit from the 600km+ of pistes that the Three Valleys ski area has to offer, as well as awe-inspiring views and spectacular mountain restaurants. And there’s plenty to do for non-skiers as well; alongside excellent shopping and gastronomy, Courchevel Moriond is just next to Aquamotion, a large water sports complex complete with indoor and outdoor pools, a spa complex, climbing wall and the Alps’ only wave surfing pool.



Just down the road from its glamourous neighbour, Courchevel 1850, Moriond is an exciting up-and-coming resort with bags of Alpine charm and excellent investment potential. Attractive mortgage rates and high rental opportunities are just part of it; the resort itself has huge potential for both summer and winter development, and a home at the base of the pistes in Manali Lodge will put you right at the centre of the action.



Manali Lodge is due for delivery at the end of 2019. For more information and enquiries please contact our Courchevel office on +33 (0)4 50 24 38 00 or email info@alpine-lodges.fr

Courchevel-Meribel to host the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in 2023

While the Winter Olympics may frequently be held in more and more far-flung destinations, it’s recently been announced that one of the key events of the winter sports calendar, the Alpine World Ski Championships, will be held in Courchevel-Meribel in 2023. A huge source of pride for the Three Valleys, this will mark the first time World Championships have been held in France since Val d’Isere in 2009; it’s only the fifth time France has hosted the competition in its 87-year history.



The biennial FIS Alpine World Ski Championship is a huge event in the ski racing world, bringing hundreds of international athletes, spectators and big name sponsors with it. There’ll also be several peripheral smaller events taking place around the competition, such as live performances, ski demos and prize-givings. While the aim of the game is to find the best of the best across multiple Alpine racing disciplines, the theme of the 2023 Alpine World Ski Championships in Courclevel-Meribel is Together for 2023, a theme that’s exceptionally fitting in today’s social and political climate. It’s Courchevel-Meribel’s enthusiasm to work together on this project, bringing together skiers from all over the world, that won them the World Cup bid against Austrian resort Saalbach Hinterglemm.


Courchevel-Meribel and the rest of the Three Valleys have time and time again proven themselves as top-class winter and summer destinations, and this latest piece of news just goes to prove that the French resorts are at the top of their game in terms of events and working ideals. The run up to 2023 will surely see even more events added to the Courchevel-Meribel winter and summer calendar, generating plenty of interest and increased visitation as the time nears.



Courchevel-Meribel is constantly ahead of the curve in making winter sports more accessible, more inclusive and exceptionally exciting and this offers many great opportunities for revenue generation and return on investment for our new property owners in the region. Equally, while the past few years have seen variable snow conditions across the Alps, it’s great to see these resorts investing in their events infrastructure to provide exciting visual spectacles for their winter visitors.


While owning a property in the Alps may be a great financial investment opportunity, Courchevel-Meribel are going the extra mile to become resorts you can call your home and be proud to be a part of. Alpine Lodges offers a range of sleek and stylish apartments in the Three Valleys such as our Canyon Lodge development, close to the action of the resorts’ buzz and events, but all expertly equipped to make your residence in the Alps feel like home.
