Chamonix to Courchevel

At first it was a mystery to us why so many people were choosing to travel from Chamonix to Courchevel during their ski holiday.  However, when you start think about it there are lots of reasons one might choose this route.

Firstly, the two resorts couldn’t be much different, one (Chamonix) is for the adventure seeking, off piste skier who is looking to get some serious vertical in and not to bothered about the rest (this is a major simplification I would like to add).  The other (Courchevel) is more suited to the skier who likes to get a little pampered, eat very well, drink nice wine and enjoy some well groomed medium pistes.

If you are skiing with the family or a group of friends you will no doubt find that you are in a group of differing abilities and it would therefore make total sense to spend a week in Chamonix and then a week in Courchevel.

ROUTE DETAILS

  • Distance – 120 Km via Megeve, Flumet and Ugine.
  • Time – 2 – 2.5 hrs
  • Road conditions – Very twisty, often snowy and often closed.

Looks like winter might be coming to the Alps at last!  We might not be holding our breath just yet but it does look encouraging.

We will of course post something as soon as the white stuff starts falling.

This image is taken from www.snow-forecast.com.  They give you a very detailed and accurate forecast for many resorts around the world, not just Europe.

Chamonix skiing has started, At last!

Today was officially the opening day for Chamonix skiing.  Normally by this time we have been skiing for about 1 month already but due to very few snow falls and very mild temperatures there simply isn’t enough snow on the ground.

The skiing that is actually open is taking place up high on the Grand Montets which is north facing and generally holds snow well.  They do have plenty of snow making facilities too, but due to the mild temperatures they haven’t been able to make the most of using them.

With nothing really to speak of on the snow forecast everyone in the Alps is holding their breath to see what is going to happen next and most are praying for some of the white stuff to fall out of the sky at some point soon.

When it does start to snow we will let you know about it!

Whats New in Courchevel this season?

You may think that Courchevel simply shuts down during the summer and everyone goes on holiday! well no, there is lots going on up on the mountain with improvements being made to the lifts and pistes  all in preparation for the following winter.

Three lifts have been replaced for this season. The “Fôret” bubble lift in Courchevel le Praz has at last been renewed by a super fast 6-seater demountable chair. This 1970′s lift only carried 1,000 people per hour, the new one will carry 2,400 people per hour.  Total Cost for this new lift, 9 million Euros.

The old “Aiguilles du Fruit” chairlift and the Gravelles chairlift have both been replaced by one new 6-seater demountable chair which has the ability to move more people than both the old ones put together! Total cost 8 million Euros.

They have been working hard on the Pistes too! The Altiport piste has been turned into a gentle Blue run starting from the top of the “Aiguilles du Fruit” lift and the connecting piste between Courchevel-Moriond now has 8 new snow cannons to improve snow cover.

Lastly, an area of ungroomed, avalanche-controlled terrain has been created in the Courchevel-Moriond area called the “Liberty Ride du Tétras”.  The idea is to allow “adventure seekers” access to some Off Piste terrain without the associated risks.

For information about how to get to Courchevel from any of the surrounding airports, train stations or resorts please do not hesitate to contact us at Deluxe.

Happy skiing.

New addition to Deluxe vehicle fleet!

1-7-950x540At Deluxe we are constantly aiming to provide the best possible service to our customers, this includes giving as much choice as possible.  That is why for winter 2014/15 we have added a VW Caravelle to our fleet.

The Caravelle is widely considered as the Benchmark of the VW passenger transport range and it only seemed logical that we add this to our fleet.  Its level of comfort and size is comparable to our Mercedes Viano’s which we have successfully been using for many years now.

For more information about our services please do not hesitate to contact us.
