Courchevel 1850 Ski School FAQs
Are lift passes included in the ski lessons at Courchevel 1850?
No. Neither of the ski passes at Courchevel 1850 ( the 3 Vallées pass or the Courchevel Valley pass) are included in the ski lessons at any of the ski schools at the resort. The ski passes will have to be purchased separately and prior to the start of the ski lessons to enable access to the lifts. Some of the neighbouring Courchevel villages have been known to have free lifts which grant access to their beginner areas; for example, the Troika & Le Praz lifts in La Tania, the Belvedere and Mickey in Courchevel Moriond, the Envolée in Courchevel 1300, and the Roys lift in Courchevel village. Please be aware that these are subject to change over time. Please ensure that you purchase a valid lift pass before you begin your lessons. The ski passes can be purchased directly with us as well and can be included in your overall order. For more information on securing your Courchevel 1850 lift pass, check out our ski pass page.

What type of ski lessons should I book at Courchevel 1850?
There are a number of ski lessons you can choose from at Courchevel 1850. Ski lessons cut across the various ski ability levels and contrary to belief, ski lessons are not only administered to beginners and children. You can find lessons available for most levels from novice level skiers to intermediate level skiers who are comfortable on the slopes but may need to learn difficult terrain and off-piste slopes. Before booking a ski lesson at Courchevel 1850, you need to be fully aware of your current ski ability level and that of whoever is accompanying you. Once distinguished, you can then choose between a private lesson or a group lesson. Private lessons cost more than group lessons and involve a one-on-one coaching system with a dedicated instructor throughout the learning process. The advantage of this is that you are the main focus and the instructor’s attention is undivided which in turn, tends to see much quicker improvements. Group sessions involve skiers who are looking to learn being grouped together and coached as a group. This is a more sociable method that is favoured by people who thrive and learn better in a group setting. It is also very much favoured by parents with children as the children can make new friends and may thrive better within their peer groups. Ski schools also have ski clubs for children which have different activities designed specifically to keep them engaged and occupied.
