Dare to Dream a White Christmas in Courchevel

Imagine waking up with a view of the snowy mountains and pine trees covered with fresh snow on Christmas morning. Well, if you book a ski holiday to Courchevel for the celebration period, here’s what you and your kids expect!
In addition to enjoying the perfect winter wonder, you and your family will be able to enjoy the many festive activities in the resort, ranging from a fantastically cooked Christmas dinner to the torching torches that light up for the kids to enjoy at sunset.

The best part is that it can not be more easily accessible from the UK, as there are regular flights to Geneva from most airports in the UK, as well as excellent transport links from Geneva to Courchevel.

Courchevel for Families

While the exclusive Courchevel resort of 1850 is the perfect destination for many couples and ski enthusiasts, families with small children can opt for lower resorts in 1550 and 1650, which are smaller and have a more family-friendly and intimate feel.

All resorts have their own children’s ski school (I highly recommend studying with French ESF – let them know that your kids are English, and they will include them into English-speaking classes). Moreover, there are nurseries, snow playgrounds and beginner slopes in each resort. Dare to Dream a White Christmas in Courchevel

When you distance yourself from the slopes, you will find that there are many things that can be done like in the snow. For example, why not take a family ice skating, bowling or cinema?

What to Expect During the Teaching Season?

As you travel from Geneva to Courchevel, you will feel the joy of your children growing as you drive into the heart of the Narnian landscape-the snowy mountain slopes and pine forests.

When you reach the resort, you will find that the French embrace the magic of the festive season just as we go home. The high streets of all the resorts sparkle with Christmas lights, giving the whole area a truly magical feel.

Festive treatments tend to include songs of praise and fireworks, traditional markets, parades, lots of hot chocolate events and live music, as well as traditional Christmas meals in many of its restaurants.

Highlights for 2017 include a torch lighting led by ESF instructors and Santa features as special guests, as well as special Boxing Day livery events.

Lastly, do not forget that you can also ski on Christmas Day. All resort lifts and pistes are open all day. Who knows – you might even find Santa practicing his engraving!

How to get there

The resort is served by four airports during the ski season: Chambery, Lyon, Grenoble and Geneva. For the most organized and stress-free connection, choose flights to Geneva with providers like easyJet, British Airways, Swiss International or Air France.

For a completely no-hassle way to get your family from the airport to your resort, just book airport transfers with Shuttle Direct before you leave home.
