S3V Update on new infrastructure in Courchevel
An update on the work on the new Alpinium Building in Le Praz, the snow front around La Croisette where the new Le Praz gondola arrives, the new piste and lift at L’Ecrin Blanc & Aquamotion plus Les Indiens Tribe return to the Indiens Piste in 1650!
The new, fast 10 seater gondola direct to the centre of 1850, underground 500 place car park, lift pass & tourist office, reception area and ski lockers all to open this December.
The Grand Combes 4-seater chairlift and blue run is still on schedule for opening in December this year. We believe this lift will link in to runs down to 1550 (Grangettes and Tovets) for access to Courchevel 1850.
Great to see this area will still be accessible for the excellent off piste it offers – the 350m drag lift must be quicker than the long, slow chairlift it replaces and 18 less pylons too! The pistes here will remain ungroomed following fresh snowfalls as part of the Freeride LAB powder skiing zone.
Jim Ratcliffe of INEOS, owner of the Portetta hotel in 1650, now sponsor of the very successful Sky cycling team, financer of the British boat in the next America’s Cup race, owns Swiss football club Lausanne-Sport and is also said to be close to buying OGC Nice football club has donated some €17m towards this project.
Finally its been confirmed that the Indien Tribe will return to the Indiens piste/canyon for Winter 2020 providing hospitality, kids games, archery etc. Welcome back!
More updates soon from across the 3 Valleys and all will be gathered together for the What’s New in September/October 2019.
