Quick Guide on Courchevel, France
While you might be going to Courchevel, France to do some skiing, don’t miss out on the other activities you can partake in the French Alps. There is a lot of snow and so much to do! Here is a quick guide to making sure you know all the best things about Courchevel to make the most out of your vacation!
Forum Olympic Ice Rink
Skiing is fun, but it isn’t everyone’s forte. If ice skating is more your speed, master your skills at the Forum Olympic Ice Rink. Beginners and professionals are all welcome! You can practice your spins and jumps at the comfort of this state-of-the-art rink. Think you might need some extra help? Don’t be afraid to try out one of the private or group lessons they have available. If you still can’t get the hang of it, you can always watch the experts at one of the ice shows or hockey competitions that the rink hosts.
Take a break from the snow and enjoy all the water activities you can think of at Aquamotion. It is the largest European mountain water park in a natural environment. Whether you want to relax or test your agility, you will have no trouble finding something at this extravagant water park. From indoor lagoons to river rapid slides, they have it all. Even if you don’t get a chance to go inside, just take a minute to marvel at the futuristic architecture that is this spaceship-like structure, made of glass and wood.
All we need to say is -- dogs. Go on one of the many dog sledding excursions provided in Courchevel. Be prepared to put in some work though because you are going to be in control of your own sled. Don’t worry, you will be instructed at the beginning on how to handle everything. After that, it’s time to take the dogs for a spin! Who wouldn’t want to take a snow ride with a few pups?
Torch Lit Descents
By the end of the night, it’s finally time to enjoy that skiing that you came to Courchevel for. However, this isn’t any ordinary skiing. Get some dinner at Le Pilatus Mountain Restaurant and be a part of their skiing tradition. After a dinner filled with wine and cheese fondue, experience a nighttime descent with a torch-lit path.
