Courchevel Le Praz
Courchevel Le Praz is a typical alpine village in a picturesque wooded setting and with magnificent views.
Ideal for skiers who like to experience a smaller French resort but don’t want to compromise on a top ski area, this charming village has a chic but relaxed feel, with pretty lights in the trees and an excellent selection of bars and restaurants.
Accessing the skiing is easy: you can ski back to the village via the red ‘Brigues’ or to the lift stations via red ‘Murettes’. There is a nursery slope with drag lift for beginners, and for those heading further afield into Courchevel and the Three Valleys there are two options: the Le Praz gondola and the super speedy Foret chair. You can ski back close to our Le Praz chalet Loup Blanc via the Brigues piste.
Le Praz is a great place for a relaxed ski holiday as there are lovely spots for a civilised pre-ski coffee, or an apres-ski vin chaud before you head back to the chalet.
