Courchevel 1650 Resort Info

'The most expensive resort in the French Alps'? Only partially true. Sat next to Val Thorens and Méribel, Courchevel is the most easterly of the Trois Vallées (the ski maps are back to front!) It is made up of four separate parts, each with their own character.
Courchevel 1650 straddles the main road up the valley and doesn't really capture the imagination of those travelling through, probably because its main attractions, an old village centre, lively bars and quiet chalets are hidden from view. A major bonus is the local slopes are usually less crowded than those above 1850. More Courchevel 1650 resort information

Snow Overview - France  (snow news updated 20-Apr-2014)

The fine sunny weather which blessed the French resorts on Monday 14th April has lasted all week. This has reduced base depths in some locations and the snow does soften quite quickly, with the freezing level hovering around the 2,500m mark or just above it. Clouds could move in as we move into the Easter weekend, but the good news is that the freezing level is expected to drop to around 2,000m on Saturday 19th April which could result in fresh snowfall. As you might expect for this time of year it is best to stick to the highest slopes if you prefer the conditions to be less sun affected, especially the sheltered and higher north facing slopes. The Pyrenean resorts of Cauterets (260/360cm) and Bareges/La Mongie (65/270cm) offer some superb skiing at the moment due to the deep snow bases on the upper slopes. Further north in the Alps there is also excellent skiing available. The classics for late season, such as Tignes (40/190cm), Val d’Isere (40/128cm) and Val Thorens (85/190cm), offer fantastic spring skiing due to their high elevations. The upper slopes at La Plagne (5/200cm) are also in very good shape. In the Southern Alps, Isola 2000 (95/270cm) has an impressive base depth on the higher slopes at the moment of over two and a half metres, providing lovely riding conditions.

European Weather Outlook

Predominantly cloudy weather is forecast across the European resorts over the Easter weekend and next week. The freezing level could drop to around 2,000m at the start of the weekend before rising back up to over 2,500m. The altitude of the slopes and the ski area will therefore dictate whether you can expect fresh snow or rain over this period.
