Skiers at French Alps destination Courchevel should notice a few changes this upcoming winter, including a new six-seat chairlift and a new family terrain park.
Equipped with the Magnestick system, the new lift is intended to modernize the link between the ski areas of Courchevel 1850 and Courchevel 1650, which are two of the four towns that make up the Courchevel valley. In addition, the existing Cospillot’s ski lift will be extended to make more of the resort’s accommodations ski in, ski out.
A new family terrain park will open beneath the Verdon cable car, and it will feature a snow park, snow cross, and what is being called an Animation Area.
The resort is also adding defibrillator machines throughout the ski area, in an effort to provide rapid response to any heart-related emergencies on the ski hill.
Finally, guests will enjoy new three-hour lift passes and be welcomed by a new tourism office in Courchevel 1850.
The new lift passes will be valid for any three hours of the day. This will replace the ‘morning’ lift pass that will no longer be available, although the afternoon’s lift pass (from 12.30pm) will still be available. The Courchevel 1650 area will be incorporated in to the minipass.
The new tourism office will be built in the heart of “La Croisette”, in Courchevel 1850, near to the lift pass sales desks, ski school desks and ski lifts. The new facility will include a free internet wifi area.
