Courchevel 1850 is a lovely spot within the French Alps. The town center is picturesque with many high end shopping options and very good restaurants. There were a lot of (apparently) wealthy Russians in various colors and styles of fur coats, hats and boots. Not many Americans, but that made the cultural aspect all the more interesting. Snow conditions were poor for our visit at the beginning of January, but the mountains had enough artificial snow production to allow for skiing. We really enjoyed ourselves!
Still a lovely resort, but expensive!
We like to go skiing to Courchevel in France and Engelberg in Switzerland. Courchevel has changed a lot over the years, and no longer feels very French, but its still a great place. We generally stay in catered chalets in the resort - hotels really are too expensice. Nicest of the Courchevel villages is Courchevel 1550 - quiet, but links straight into 1850.
