Spring skiing is always a pleasure; the sun is out, the skies are blue, the pistes are in prime condition and everyone’s in a good mood! Spring skiing in Courchevel is particularly special, since Courchevel is located in one of the world's largest ski areas and there's so much to do. Whether you own a home here or you're just visiting for the week, spring offers a huge choice of things to do and enjoy, with family or friends. Here are just a few of our favourite things about spring skiing in Courchevel.
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.
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. Then there's the Three Valleys Enduro, a series of friendly amateur ski races throughout the Three Valleys, and the Festival des Jeux, a celebration of fun and games for families. These are just a few options, click here to find out more; whether you’re holidaying with kids or adults, there’s something for everyone.
