10 Non Ski Activities in Courchevel for Non-Skiers
If you are a non-skier and heading to Courchevel, you are not alone. You might be surprised at the number of people that head to stay in one of our luxury chalets in Courchevel with no plans to go skiing. The good news is that there are lots of non ski activities in Courchevel.
Here are just 10 options if you are not planning to ski when in Courchevel:
Every resort offers some sort of sledging, but nothing quite like the one from Courchevel 1850 to 1550. The run is 2km long and winds down the mountain through the trees on its own track and dropping 300 vertical metres during the course. The Grangettes bubble lift that services it is open until 7.30pm and is included with a lift pass. Alternatively, single journeys can be purchased separately for €9.
Courchevel 1850 is a resort known its luxury. This has earned it a reputation as a place to be seen and regularly attracts the rich and famous. You could spend your days relaxing in the resort’s bars and restaurants, spoiling yourself while spotting film stars and mingling with billionaires.
The biggest new development in Les 3 Vallees has to be the new Aquamotion center. The venue contains 15,000 sqm of indoor and outdoor swimming pools and caters for families, dedicated swimmers and those looking to relax. You may have been to resort swimming pools before, but we guarantee you, you’ve never been somewhere quite like this!
Activities in the Forum
In the centre of Courchevel 1850 you will find Le Forum where there are many activities, restaurants and shops to keep you entertained. It is home to the Olympic ice rink, where you can skate or enjoy an ice hockey match. There is also a climbing wall and hi-rope course for the more adventurous.
Courchevel has some incredible restaurants run by some of the world’s best chefs. Among these are several Michelin starred restaurants. Most exclusive is Le 1947 with three Michelin stars. The head chef Yannick Alleno only opens the restaurant three months of the year so make sure you contact the Kaluma Travel concierge service to book your table in advance.
Hot Air Ballooning
Take off at sunset and or sunrise and head into the skies for the best view you’ll have ever seen! This is a wonderful way to take in the beauty of the mountains and the stunning Vanoise National Park. Prices start at €280pp. Please use the Kaluma Travel Concierge service to make a booking.
If you’re keen to explore the mountains under your own steam, but are not convinced by ski touring, then maybe a Fat Bike could be the solution. These modified mountain bikes have super-wide tires allowing you to adventure into snowy regions without your wheels disappearing into the snow. It’s tremendous fun – whether going up or down!
Drive a Piste Basher
It may be less stylish than many of the expensive vehicles you can find in Courchevel, but the ‘piste basher’ is still on many people’s driving wish list. Why not book onto one of the driving experiences in resort? Choose from a track course in the day time or if you wait until the slopes close you can go on bigger adventure.
Skiing or not, the idea of a holiday is to enjoy yourself and relax. Make sure you pick a luxury chalet that has everything you need help you unwind and escape from the rest of the world. We have a great selection of luxury catered chalets that are the perfect place to rest and relax if you’re not going to be on the slopes all day.
