The ski village of Courchevel 1850 is situated in the heart of “Les 3 Vallées”, the world’s largest ski area. “Les 3 Vallées”, now four valleys, is renowned for beautifully groomed slopes, superb infrastructure and some of the best and most consistent skiing conditions in the world. Located on the Bellecôte ski slope, Le Mélézin is 200m away from the village centre and its ski lifts, ski school, banks and shops. This enviable location offers guests the advantage of skiing in and out of the hotel. Le Mélézin’s 31 guest rooms and suites combine comfort and elegance, and most feature spectacular views of the ski slopes and surrounding peaks. Room layouts vary, and rates are allocated according to size and view. Hotel facilities include the Restaurant, Bar and Spa.
On the slopes
The Trois-Vallées region offers 600km of groomed pistes and a variety of runs to suit all levels. The highest slopes are found at Val-Thorens, while La Saulire offers the best snow conditions and some of the most challenging runs. With gradients of 38 degrees, these are amongst the most taxing black runs in the world. Meribel, on the other hand, offers a wide range of good red slopes. There are also more than a dozen crosscountry routes in the area, most of them created especially for the 1992 Winter Olympics. Activities include skiing, cross-country skiing, heli-skiing, snowboarding, snow-shoeing, snowmobiling, tobogganing, paragliding, hot air ballooning and hang-gliding.
Off the slopes
After a rigorous day’s skiing, Le Mélézin offers a variety of venues in which to unwind: the indoor swimming pool; the Spa which offers specialised relaxation and beauty treatments; the Salon; and the Bar. There is also the Restaurant which serves French cuisine. For those wishing to venture out, just 200m from the resort is the village with its lively mix of après-ski bars, boutiques and village entertainment.
