Where do Brits love to go skiing?
Skiing and snowboarding are popular snow sports, and we're lucky to have so many options when it comes to winter holiday destinations where we can take part in these high-adrenaline activities.
With the Alps just a few hundred miles in Europe, some of the world's finest pistes are practically on our doorstep. In fact, with so many great options to consider, it can be difficult to decide where to go.
Explore La Rosiere in Courchevel for a dose of natural beauty
For visitors to Courchevel looking to get out and enjoy nature, one popular destination is La Rosiere. This beautiful and tranquil nature site is located at the bottom of the Valee des Avals and includes a picturesque lake, as well as campsites equipped for picnics and barbecues. It's also an ideal departure point for a number of hikes suitable for all levels.
Is there gold in the mountain pastures of Courchevel?
As any winter sports enthusiast knows, during the winter months, the Alps are covered in wonderful snow. The fresh powder is perfect for a variety of activities, and the region is especially popular for skiers and snowboarders. That's why, in Courchevel, the snow has been nicknamed "white gold" since it has brought large-scale development to the area.
Courchevel, the heart of the Alps
Part of Les Trois Vallees in France, Courchevel stands proudly as one third of the largest linked ski areas throughout the world. For this reason it tends to be a very popular choice for families and large groups of travellers and snowsports enthusiasts, as you can easily swap between it and the other resorts of the region. Remember though that you'll either need a special pass to access the slopes in all three areas, or else you will have to buy a separate one when you go somewhere new. Luckily, there are plenty of packages available that will see you be able to enjoy the best of all the resorts available to you.
The Plum KV in Courchevel: A tough event
Although this sounds short and rather unlike a test of endurance, don't be fooled because it covers a vertical ascent of 1,000m over the race distance. In winter this is done on skis and in summer it's done on foot, which is arguably a bit easier, as you have less equipment to contend with. However difficult this event is, it's surprisingly popular and it speaks to the kind of person who loves snowsports and is looking for a brand new challenge. It's held on various dates throughout the season in Courchevel, but the next one is on Friday 18th March - further dates are yet to be announced.
The race starts from the La Praz Tourist Office in the resort and it's from there that you'll be charging your way up the mountain to the summit of La Loze. There are several hotels and chalets close to the ski lifts that will take you up to this mountain, so you should be able to find somewhere handy to stay if you want to take part in this event. A particular draw of the Plum KV is that it's suitable for just about anyone, as amateurs are more than welcome to take part in the fun. As this is a slow-moving race, there tends to be quite a lot of atmosphere and camaraderie between the climbers. Of course, you can expect there to be specialist walkers who will be racing against each other to beat their records.
