2016 v 2015 Courchevel Piste Map Differences – Plan du Vah Returns!


Following the differences noted on 2015 v 2016 The 3 Valleys Piste Map we’ve now got the 2016 Courchevel Valley Piste Map for lift & piste geeks everywhere. We didn’t notice the return on the Plan du Vah piste from “Fruit Junction” (between 1650 and 1850 at the bottom of the Roc Mugnier & Aiguille du Fruit lifts) down to the road at the hairpin on the way up to 1850 from 1650.


So currently this run will just go down to a bus stop as it did when marked on the 2012/13 piste map – it was a blue run then, now it’s a red. Plans for a future lift and/or continuation to the new Aqua Centre at 1550 (opening in December) are also rumoured.

Other difference include a new marking on certain runs with a PEUF logo. According to the key “These runs (when open) are powder guaranteed after snowfalls”. Which looks like it means they won’t be groomed following a decent snowfall – the pistes include Jockeys, Jean Blanc, M, Combe des Pylons plus the runs down from Chanrossa and the Creux Noirs lifts (always last to open following heavy snow on any case).

Note there are “new” logos on both maps – The 2016 map has the Verdons by Night pic lower down.
