With its wide-open runs and perfectly groomed slopes, Courchevel snowboarding resort offers some fantastic piste riding. It can be pretty mind-blowing when conditions are good, especially if you’re into carving.
Snowboarding in Courcheval is not all about the pistes, though. There is plenty of easily accessible off-piste riding close to the marked runs. For more adventurous snowboarders, the back of the resort offers some more extreme terrain. In addition to the impressive views, this is ideal if you’re into splitboarding.
If freestyle’s your thing, the Family Park in Courcheval’s snowboarding resort has some great lines of boxes, rails and kickers. There is also a beginner’s area which we often use in our snowboarding lessons. This is the perfect place for getting the hang of things before progressing to the bigger features.
For first-time riders, Courcheval snowboarding resort offers some of the best terrain in the 3 Valleys. There’s a huge choice of easy wide-open slopes. These are ideal for practising your turns without the concern of getting close to the piste edge. You also never feel crowded with people around you.
When snowboarding in Courcheval, be sure to check prices before stopping for a drink on the slopes. You can easily blow your day’s budget just on a round of beers!
Superb, Fun, Patient Tuition Our 16 yr old daughter wanted to start snow boarding this year and having had pervious positive experience of using CAB9 for another child, albeit some years ago, I emailed and manage to book 2 lessons. Communication was easy and efficient. Lessons were brilliant and Jono was patient, kind and fun. It may be an expense, but honestly, it is cost effective as the tuition is soooo good. Thank you, we now have another proficient snow boarder in the family.
Lessons for all Had a great 3 hr lesson with Jono who very quickly picked up all my bad habits and started correcting them. The rest of my week was faster, smoother, and required less effort. Would recommend whether you're just starting out or a seasoned boarder... there's always room for improvement.
Fantastic instructors and service We had a week in Vals Thorens and had Jono as our instructor, we went for private lessons that me and my other half shared (he did three and I had one lesson with Marco). Marco was amazing, very patient, supportive and had great knowledge. My partner was a complete beginner and came along so well thanks to the lessons. Booking was easy and Helen was really helpful in getting us the right deal / options for us! Thank you!
The most fun you can have on the mountain! Jono is a brilliant instructor and helped me to progress in the areas I wanted to focus on. As I was the only person on the lesson, the 2x 2.5hr sessions were rolled into a single personalised 2.5hr session, which was fine by me as Marco helped me to progress very quickly and build my confidence on boxes, jumps and different features. Time wasn’t an issue and the lesson pushed 3hrs as the visibility dipped half way through and he wanted me to get the most out of my lesson. Everything was fun and easy to understand and Jono pushes you to maximise your ability without putting you out of your comfort zone. On my last day in the resort we had an amazing dump of snow, Jono invited me out to explore the area and cruise the powder, definitely one of the best days I’ve ever had on the mountain!
Highly recommend to anyone!
