Courchevel 1850 Resort Info

Sat at the Eastern end (The Three Valleys piste maps look South!) of the biggest linked ski area in the world, it's not hard to see why Courchevel 1850 has become such an exclusive destination. Gentle, tree-lined pistes feed into and through the centre of the resort, with almost every chalet, hotel and apartment being on or near the piste. Meribel is quickly accessible by any number of routes. The superb, high-tech lift system means that you can be in Val Thorens in time for an early lunch with ease...
The biggest village and arguably the jewel in Courchevel's crown, 1850 is the focal point of the resort, with a good selection of world-class hotels, restaurants and shopping. There are a good selection of less expensive accommodation options in town, especially with several British run chalet hotels. Lift access to the whole 3 Valleys area is from the centre of town, giving easy access to almost all guests. More Courchevel 1850 resort information

Snow Overview - France  (snow news updated 22-Feb-2017)

The story in France on Monday 20th of February was of lovely, sunny weather but with variable snow conditions. The holiday crowds mean that much of the grippy snow disappears as the day goes on, leaving slopes hard packed and icy in places. Generally, however, slopes remain good right down to resort. The sun was shining in the Portes du Soleil today with most areas still holding decent snow cover. The best skiing is probably in Avoriaz (90/120cm). Beware of slopes getting a little icy and hard late on, caused in part by the cold and shade but mostly by the sheer quantity of traffic on the slopes. Chatel (30/75cm) is about ready to burst right now, with queues being especially bad at the Linga telecabine lift. The sun was also out in Flaine (63/195cm) where slopes were in mostly good condition despite being variable in quality. At the top, slopes could be hard packed, especially where shaded, whereas where exposed to the sun, slopes softened up fast. There were some interesting conditions to report in Font Romeu (130cm) where lots of snow plus warm temperatures and blazing sunshine have led to some early spring conditions. Expect runs to be hard on the legs. In Villard de Lans (35/80cm), there was no natural snow at the bottom of the mountain, and resort runs were made of artificial snow. Head up high for the best skiing there.

European Weather Outlook

It is going to a mix of weather conditions in the Alps this week. This weekend should see some excellent snow conditions all over The Alps, but we will see some strange weather before then. Austria and Germany will see a brief period of very warm temperatures in the next few days. This sudden mixing of warm and cold air will bring wide spread rain. The freezing level will quickly rise to between 1500m and 1800m, snow can be expected above 1900m. Italy and France will see cloud cover related to the change but shouldn’t expect any precipitation. Switzerland will see lots of cloud and potentially some mixed precipitation but nothing too heavy. Beyond this cold air will return rapidly late on Thursday. It’s not exactly clear what weekend conditions will be like currently, however most resorts in the central and northern Alps will experience powder skiing conditions on Saturday. For a more accurate picture on weekend condition check back here on Thursday. It is also worth mentioning that currently there is a large storm appearing in the long range forecast for the end of this month. It still a long way away but it is worth a little bit of excitement over. In The Pyrenees the weather will be mostly sunny this week. No new snow is currently forecast with the exception of Sierra Nevada where light snow is expected every day this week. Snowy conditions return to Scandinavia this week with light to moderate snow forecast in Norway Finland and Sweden.
