Courchevel Guide Hire
Courchevel Resort Guide
Courchevel is one of the most well known resorts in the Alps. Part of the Three Valleys (with Meribel and Val Thorens), this resort is made up of three areas; 1550, 1650 and 1850, referring to their heights with the latter being the most prestigious in terms of glitz and glamour. With mainly north facing slopes, the snow remains in great condition all day and being connected to the other two parts of the Three Valleys by an efficient lift system, it means you can explore all the areas very easily.
Hiring Ski Guides in Courchevel
If you are yet to feel comfortable venturing off piste in Courchevel independently, hiring a qualified guide means you can safely explore the areas that hold some of the best powder whilst improving your technical, navigation and rescue skills. Taking into consideration the ability level, group size and conditions, a mountain guide will pick the most suitable area to ski or climb to ensure you have a great day away from the pistes in relative safety. You can also hire guides for heli-skiing in Courchevel where you will be taken to the Italian or Swiss borders and flown up high to reach some untouched routes. A private ski guide is always required when heli-skiing but the combination of experience of the guide and exhilaration from helicopter ride makes for a memorable day.
There are some fantastic bowls and couloirs to ski if you are suitably equipped with avalanche equipment, know how to use it and you have the technical ability. The majority are very accessible from the lift system but this means they can get tracked rather quickly. Spots include, the runs off Dou des Lanches, Creux Noir, either side of the Chanrossa and over in the Vallee Des Avals. Hiring mountain guides in Courchevel is as always recommended if you are unsure of your own ability or the conditions. If you cannot find a guide on Rated Guides then contact the Bureau des Guides de Méribel et de Courchevel for some advice and availability.
