Courchevel Moriond is THE blue run sector.
Courchevel Moriond: it’s an ideal spot to ‘find your ski legs’ or if you fancy a relaxed outing with very few people around, and on beautiful slopes.
As it is not busy, and because you ski on a plateau from which you can’t see the villages, in Courchevel Moriond you get the impression that you are ‘off the beaten track’, far from the busy slopes and junctions which can become crowded during school holidays. It’s almost like being at the end of the earth!
As for the landscape, it’s our most minimalist, uncluttered ski sector, where the geometric shape of the mountains is intriguing; Pyramids being the perfect example. Here, there are no pharaohs or Nefertiti, just contrasting colours that make the landscape poetic.
As for the ski runs, they are undulating, wide, long, and gentle… And not very crowded. Pure happiness, on all counts!
As a bonus, in summer, the slopes are mountain pastures where our cows graze quietly to make the milk that becomes delicious cheese, including the famous Beaufort. This means that you aren’t skiing over rocky slopes, which is reassuring, especially at the very start and end of the season.
We invite you to explore the 3 Vallées via its secret spots (Tania > Col de la Loze > Méribel > Saint Martin).
This itinerary is great for the hidden gems of the 3 Valleys, taking only easy, uncrowded blue runs. It’s the choice of locals and passes through idyllic spots and high points to get to the other end of the ski area.
En route for magical forest of ancient spruce, uncluttered, uncrowded peaks, wide blue runs: the landscapes are varied and the route isn’t busy: we love it!
The idea behind this route is to take you to the iconic summits of the 3 Valleys without needing to be an expert on your skis. A high-altitude, all-mountain itinerary only on blue runs, with a stop off in Val Thorens – which should definitely be on your bucket list in the largest ski area in the world!
Top tip: this route is best outside of the school holidays.
Guetting back : The slopes Ariondaz, Grandes Bosses, Petites Bosses, Gravelles then the Aiguille de Fruit chairlift. (Pssst, look down into the forest, and you might see one of our ‘mountain chickens’, the Tétras Lyre, who like to nest here – skiing is prohibited in this spot because it can scare the birds who take flight and then can’t find their nest again.).
