Courchevel 1650 Ski School

When you think of France, Courchevel is the resort that comes to mind. It’s not just because we have some incredible scenery and tons of snow—although both are true! What sets this place apart from other skiing destinations? The people. New Generation Ski School was founded here with one mission: to challenge what people believed about professional instructors being aloof or unapproachable; we strive for experiences so unforgettable it becomes an integral part of someone’s holiday plans.

Courchevel FAQ’s

Train

The Eurostar offers overnight trains direct from London St Pancras to Moutiers (about 25mins from Courchevel, at the foot of the mountain). From there you can get a twenty-minute taxi up to the resort. 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 a ski carriage. You just need to be able to carry all you can bring…..

It’s far better for the environment and means you don’t need to take the day off work to travel as you can work on the train or choose an overnight option. Find out more here.

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

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.

There is a regular free bus service in Courchevel which links all the villages. You can get from Courchevel 1650 to 1850 every 10mins during the day and buses run between Courchevel 1650, 1550 and Le Praz every 30mins. Bus timetables are displayed at each bus stop. And buses run until about 1.30 am.

The Grangettes gondola from Courchevel Le Praz to 1850 is now open until 11:00 pm every evening.

These can be accessed on the Courchevel website.
