Residents / Workers Ski Passes

Watch this space - as expected, some big back tracking going on over this. Looks like there will be something announced soon. The original info here...

Update 24/11: Residents Passes are now announced. Tax return, proof of permanent main residence, utility bills etc required or if you got a resdents pass last year you can just top up your pass on-line at: (date for registrations is still to be announced - it's not live yet). Adult Prices are €387 for the Courchevel Valley and €732 for a 3 Valleys Pass (full prices passes are €1190 and €1404 respectively).


Winter 2022 Courchevel Free Ski Bus Timetables

No consultation or explanation from the Mairie but this looks like a change of bus may be needed for all trips from La Tania to Courchevel resorts?
La Tania in main season is no longer on the Le Praz to 1850 main route, it is now on the "Bozel Line" - there is (hopefully) a connecting service at Le Praz outbound - but not on the return journey as far as we can see.
Note that the Le Praz bus stop is now along the La Tania road next to the Alpinium (so nearer for the Gondola and Chairlift).
The option if you're going to 1850 is to take the Le Praz Gondola which of course will be quicker and will be open in the evening - but this isn't a free lift as far as we know, and it is still a bit of a walk up to La Croisette if carrying kids skis etc. Feels like trips to 1650 from La Tania and vice versa will be the most difficult (there's practically zero apres ski in 1850 or 1550 anyway).
After being enthusiastic about the increase in shuttle bus services planned for last Winter (which of course didn't happen but did include the evening opening of Grangettes and Praz), this is a step backwards and reducing public transport - therefore encouraging private car trips - wouldn't seem to fit in to the green and sustainability policy aspirations of Courchevel.

La Tania Tourist Office Saved?

We hear that there will be a Tourist Office function in La Tania this Winter opening on 4th December for the Winter season. Based in the existing tourist office building it will be substantially smaller and there are plans for public toilets and a commercial premises in there. Let's hope it is staffed full time be staff with a real local knowledge of La Tania...


La Tania Opening Date Confirmed

After plenty of incorrect information on social media we can confirm that La Tania lifts are scheduled to open on Saturday 11 December 2021 as expected. There had been some speculation that lifts may have opened a week earlier when the Courchevel 1850 lifts open on Saturday 4 December.
