Courchevel 1850 Ski School

Courchevel has been New Generation Ski Schools spiritual home since we opened our doors to our first clients here in 1998. In the Last 23 years, we have grown from being the new kids on the block into a team of sought after local experts.

Despite being older and greyer than we used to be. Our Courchevel ski school team have the same passion for inspiring and supporting our clients to develop their skiing and make the most of this incredible resort. We have been joined by some incredible ski instructors over the years and are proud to work with a team with such a depth of talent.

Whether you want to explore off-piste, learn to snowboard, discover park skiing or are wanting to learn to ski for the first time we have the perfect Ski Instructor for you.

Ski School Meeting Point

Where you’ll meet your instructor

Group Lessons – The New Generation Courchevel 1850 Ski School meeting point is situated next to the top of the Tovets chair lift. It is below the Croisette building next to the stairs coming down from the road, just on the edge of the piste near Chez Gaston restaurant. If you’re on skis, just ski under the bridge near the bottom of the piste and we meet just after it on the right.

Private Lessons – We’ll meet you at a convenient location for you. 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 the tolls can be quite pricey on the motorways so something to consider.

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…..
