Courchevel 1650 Ski School

Courchevel is where New Generation Ski School started. Our mission was to challenge the preconception that Ski Lessons were impersonal, necessities and create experiences that not just helped people ski but became the highlights of their holidays.

This goal is still at the heart of everything we do, from our instructor recruitment and training to all our processes in-resort. Beginning with the initial contact, until after you leave the resort, our goal is to deliver unforgettable ski lessons, adventures and experiences to suit your needs and exceed your expectations.

We know it’s the little things that count. Whether you’re looking for lessons and coaching, a bespoke package for your corporate trip or to find the best lunch spot, our experienced team have got it covered.

Ski School Meeting Point

Where you’ll meet your instructor

Group Lessons – The New Generation Courchevel 1650 Ski School meeting point is situated next to the Ariondaz bubble. After you come up the escalators from the centre, and leave the lift pass building, head to the right, underneath the gondola. We meet on the right-hand side about 50ms up, alongside the fencing.

Private Lessons – We’ll meet you at a convenient location for you. Please let us know where you’d like to meet before the start of the lesson.

Courchevel FAQ’s

Airport Transfers

If you’re arriving by air then you’ll probably fly into either Grenoble, Lyon or Geneva. The following transfer companies offer airport transfers, either private or sometimes shared:

3 Valley Transfers

Snowbound Transfers to Courchevel

Sky2ski

Snowlinx

Snow White Transfers

There are buses from the airport but you will need to change at Moutiers and they’re not cheap so if there is a few of you it often cheaper to share a transfer.

The train is the cheapest option from the airports, but again this will involve several changes and the trains are somewhat infrequent.

Drive

It’s about a 9hr drive once in France to reach Courchevel. The benefits of driving are no luggage restrictions and the option of an extra day skiing during a week’s holiday but keep in mind the tolls can be quite pricey on the motorways.

Train

The Eurostar offers overnight trains direct from London St Pancras to Moutiers (about 25mins from Courchevel, at the foot of the mountain). If you don’t mind overnight travel and can sleep on trains (or are willing to forego sleep) then this can be one of the cheapest and most convenient ways to reach the Alps. Plus, no extra charge for ski carriage. You just need to be able to carry all you can bring…..
