Just a little further down the mountain from its glitzy big sister Courchevel 1850, the quieter resort of Courchevel Moriond (1650) offers some of the best skiing in the whole of the Trois Vallées. It is fast establishing itself as a resort in its own right, with a much more mountain village feel. It boasts some excellent hotels and facilities to guarantee a great skiing holiday, quite often at better value than Courchevel 1850. The village is a good family ski destination, as it suits all levels.
The village lines the main road up to 1850 but despite that, the main centre is atmospheric with a quiet square surrounded by traditional Alpine buildings, bars and restaurants. Moriond boasts a good choice of shops, supermarkets and places to eat and drink to suit all tastes and has some lively après-ski. The main lift (the Bel Air) whisks you straight to the door of one of the most renowned mountain restaurants of the same name with one of the best terraces in the Trois Vallées.
The “front de neige” is the perfect place to soak up the sun on one of the hotel terraces and watch the skiers coming down. Once the slopes are closed, this becomes a hive of activity for sledging. And for families or groups with non-skiers, Courchevel 1650 offers plenty of activity, with lots of good walks through the forests.
