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.

Snow Overview - France (snow news updated 08-Mar-2014)
There was more powder skiing on offer at our featured French resorts with heavy snowfall throughout the week.
The Pyrenees experienced huge amounts of new snow this week with over 100cm falling at Cauterets (280/380cm) on Wednesday 5th March. There was also so much new snow the previous day that the resort remained closed on Tuesday 4th March but sunny weather returned on Thursday 6th March.
There was also heavy snow in Chamonix (175/265cm) this week with 30cm of fresh powder hitting the area on Tuesday. There are still great conditions on and off piste and sunny skies on Thursday meant there was perfect visibility.
Alpe d’Huez (153/255cm) and Les Deux Alpes (75/220cm) started the week with fresh powder and a further 10cm of new snow fell on Wednesday.
European Weather Outlook
Very little snow is expected to fall in Europe over the next week as spring conditions take over. No resorts in France, Switzerland and Austria have snow in the forecast with constant sun predicted next week.
Temperatures at resorts like Alpe d’Huez in France will reach around 4C and some lower resorts could experience slushy conditions on their resort-level pistes. It is a similar story in Switzerland with no snow forecast and temperatures of up to 8C coming to Wengen.
Italian and Austrian resorts will also experience warm and sunny weather over the next nine days but some snow is expected in Bulgaria. 25cm of new snow could fall in Borovets next week.
