Courchevel 1850 (France)

By

Courchevel 1850 is the name of a ski resort located in the commune of Saint-Bon-Tarentaise in the French Alps, in the Tarentaise Valley, Savoie, Rhône-Alpes region. It is a part of Les Trois Vallées, the largest linked ski area in the world. Courchevel also refers to the towns of Courchevel 1300 (Le Praz), Courchevel 1550, Courchevel 1650 (Moriond), and Courchevel 1850, which are named for their altitudes in metres. They are situated on the commune of Saint-Bon-Tarentaise. The resort centre of Courchevel is in fact at 1,747 metres (5,732 ft),. The therefore somewhat misleading name Courchevel 1850 was chosen for marketing reasons to compete with arch rivals Val d’Isère. It is not the resort centre but the Jardin Alpin area of Courchevel 1850 which is actually located at 1,850 metres (6,070 ft).
