Cheval Blanc Courchevel – French Alps, France
Jewel of the French Alps, Courchevel 1850 is one of the most prized ski stations. The ideal location provides access to the largest ski domain in the world, the Trois Vallées, which spans to cover nearly 600 kilometres of slopes.

Les Trois Vallées, French Alps, France
This is the big one you’ve heard all about: vast, fast and a contender for largest ski area in the world. It’s impossible to tire of all this terrain: depending on how it’s reckoned, there are more than 600km of pistes and 180 lifts linking eight resorts and three parallel valleys. Among these are Val Thorens, Europe’s highest at a heady 2300m; wealthy and ever-so-British Méribel (elevation 1450m), founded by Scotsman Colonel Peter Lindsay in 1938; and playground of the super-rich Courchevel, which stretches over three purpose-built resorts at 1550m, 1650m and 1850m and is a fave of the Moët-at-five brigade and ultra-wealthy Russians. In between are a number of lesser-known Alpine villages – Le Praz (Courchevel-Le Praz; 1300m), St-Martin de Belleville (1450m) and très anglais La Tania (1400m); all are linked by speedy lifts to higher-elevation slopes.

In summer, all this can be explored on foot, or by bicycle, kayak or car. Then the return of the snow each year brings some of Europe’s finest skiing: impossibly fast black runs and world-class off-piste routes, of course, but also plenty of fun for those just finding their feet. And, in the lush lowlands and stately medieval cities, you’ll discover the rich culture, food and history of the folk who made these mountains home.
