April is really Courchevel's best kept skiing secret, great snow and quiet slopes, especially in 1650. We were surprised to hear that 1850 doesn't shut until the last weekend in April, and resorts nearby not until early May!!
We rented both the 2 bed apartment and the studio, which link easily to create a large 3 bed apartment, perfect for us as our parents came along to look after the kids, and they enjoyed the privacy of the studio. There are plenty of DVD’s for the children to enjoy and of course there is free wifi in the apartment! Another bonus for us was the blue Belvedere ski lift which is only 50 meters from the apartment. It's Free!! So is the Nursery slope below. It saved our parents 2 days of ski pass as they ventured out on the snow for the first time in 20 years! The skiing in Courchevel is amazing and now they are building a huge Spa, with pools, saunas etc which is due to open in 2015. I've never seen such a large complex in a ski resort. It's linked directly to Courchevel 1650 so we will be returning soon!!
