COURCHEVEL HISTORY

The original idea of Courchevel as a resort was conceived during the Second World War when in 1942, the French Commission of Tourism expressed and interest in creating a super ski resort. Their criteria included terrain between 1400 and 1800 meters and the feasibility of installing a reliable lift system to link them together and create an enormous cohesive ski area. At this time Courchevel, Saint Bon and Moriond were seeking funding for regeneration and development and so Courchevel became France’s first purpose built ski resort.
