The free Summer shuttle bus is now confirmed for Summer - timetable here. The service runs from Bozel, 3 times a day up to Saint-Bon, then approx every half hour from Saint-Bon up to 1850 (nearest stop is Le Praz for La Tania - take the footpath down in the Summer!) and it of course now stops at Aquamotion between 1550 Courchevel Village and 1650 Courchevel Moriond.
There is also a Brides les Bains to Courchevel bus. Useful for the bikers heading down the valley - note this is Sunday Only from 10 July to 21 August. Leaves Brides at 09:30, 10:50, 14:00 and 16:30 taking around 30 minutes to 1850). Timetables here
La Tania isn’t just about the Winter! Although so much quieter than in Winter, La Tania boasts an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, beach volley ball court, basketball court, boules pitches, downhill mountain bike tracks, table tennis tables and THE most glorious views of the mountains.
In the surrounding area you've got Paragliding (tandem rides or weekly solo courses are available),
hiking, Via Ferrata rock climbing, white water rafting, hydro speeding, fishing, horse riding,
canyoning, quad biking, paint balling, off road motorcycling, archery, clay pigeon shooting,
roller blading and road cycling. There's golf in Courchevel (9 holes next to the Biollay lift) & Méribel
Golf Course (full 18 hole course above the Altiport) and wake boarding & water skiing in Annecy or
just hang out and sunbathe in the fresh air of the mountains.
The second La Tania Theatre Festival takes place from the 2nd to 9th July 2016 with 6 theatre companies taking part.
Pub Le Ski Lodge has a Pool table and ice creams plus Happy Hours with cheap drinks and food served all day. Moules & Frites all you can eat on Thursdays and the original Alpine Fish n Chips on Fridays.
La Saucisse Savoyarde La Tania's’s delicatessen will be open this Summer, Sunday to Friday from 5pm until 9pm with excellent pizzas available to takeaway.
The Tourist Office, Supermarket, Tabac, Bakery, La Ferme / Les Chanterelles, Le Farcon and Mountain Bike Hire are all open plus there's plenty of shops, bars and
restaurants open in Courchevel and Méribel too.
Finally, don't forget summer skiing and snowboarding. Val Thorens has now given up on Summer skiing but the Tignes glacier will be open and has up to 750m vertical complete with a large fun park now located right up near the top of the Grand Motte. Open from 27 June until 07 August 2016.
If you're over
in Tignes try TCs
Bar in Le Lavachet, they're open all summer too - but beware the ski area opens at 7:15am
until 1pm - And no, it's not like skiing on ice, although hard and pisted first thing, the
snow softens very quickly and is often heavy slush by noon. Catching it at the right time
can give great conditions and a foot of fresh in the summer isn't unheard of!
There's also randomly organised tennis competitions, maybe a dog contest and potato growing challenge (known as EuroSpud),
football tournament, fancy dress parties, Summer Ski Jumping and various Fétes & BBQ's to attend including
the big Le Praz and Les Allues Fétes with spectacular fireworks displays. Plus the Wood Cutters day, the shop clearance day in Méribel, the Tour de France is always nearby (or here) and beach soccer championship in Tignes with Cantona etc.
