Courchevel is probably the most exclusive ski resort in France, and is the largest of the resorts in the renowned 3 Valleys in the Savoie province of France. The resort has five different bases and it is only the highest and largest, Courchevel 1850, that lives up to the luxury image, complete with six five-star hotels The four smaller, lower altitude Courchevels, known primarily by their altitudes of 1100, 1300, 1550 and 1650 ? although the two lowest are actually traditional villages that have always been there, St Bon at 1100 and Le Praz at 1300, which was the site for many Nordic events at the Albertville 1992 Winter Olympics. All of the bases, except St Bon, have direct lift access to the world?s largest fully-lift-linked ski area, the Three Valleys, of which Courchevel?s Valley is the most westerly and the largest of the three, bordering Meribel to its East with St Martin de Belleville, Les Menuires and Val Thorens another valley after that. Courchevel has some of the best terrain in the entire huge area, a key part of its long term success, with something for all ability levels. The Three Valleys comprise the world's largest ski domain, an area with 372 miles of trails and slopes that are interconnected with 198 lifts. America's six largest ski resorts would fit into the Three Valleys. Courchevel alone has 65 lifts and 102 runs, with a top vertical descent of more than 4,700 feet. Courchevel is built on four different levels, from 4,290 feet to 5,940. The highest cluster of buildings at Courchevel 1850 (metres) are, arguably, the most fashionable with luxury hotels and chalets with an energetic night life. Much of the accommodation allows skiers to step out of the door, after breakfast, and into their skis to embark on a journey to see how much vertical they can log or how far across the Three Valleys they can go. Sophisticated skiers will know in advance which mountain restaurant they will stop at for lunch (see also the listings for Meribel and Val Thorens.)
