Couchevel, one of the world’s premier
ski resorts, is part of the 3 Valleys ski
area, with over 600km of slopes and 169 lifts.
1650, one of Courchevel’s five villages, has arguably the
best skiing in the area with wide, tree-lined slopes that
have the benefit of being in full sun for most of the day. At
the same time there are easy links to Courchevel 1850 and
the rest of the 3 Valleys making it an ideal base to explore
the whole area. Just below Courchevel 1650 there is also
a huge watersports centre (Aquamotion) with a large pool,
water slides, wild river and even a wave machine for surfing. This season there is also a new 3km long toboggan run that will be open every day as well as two evenings a week with floodlighting.
