Throughout the winter season the Three Valleys operate an impressive lift system consisting of 200 ski lifts that transport 260,000 skiers hourly! Courchevel itself offers 1 cable car, 10 gondolas, 20 chairlifts, 29 draglifts and 3 magic carpets, whisking 70,632 rides up into the mountain per hour - phew! The lifts open every day of the week, even on Christmas and New Year's day.
A selection of the lifts are also open throughout the summer when the mountains offer spectacular views and are a great place for spotting some Alpine wildlife. The Verdons gondola and Saulire cable car can take you to the highest point of Courchevel (2738m) and provide access to mountain biking routes, walking trails, paragliding take off sites and more. There is plenty to do whether you are an experienced mountaineer or a fan of gentle rambles with a picnic!
