Courchevel in January – What to expect

As the craziness of the start of the season and the festive period settles down, what can you expect from the start of the new year in a ski resort (and we are looking this time at Courchevel) ?

Well this can certainly be one of the best months of the season , if you are out working in resort you will have probably fully gotten into the stride of your job and this should be leading to more time on the slopes. With January being one of the coldest months the snow tends to hold up pretty well and with the snow-making facilities in Courchevel running at full tilt this means that the base layer of snow is being added to every night.

While the resort may feel a little quieter than the last couple of weeks , lets not forget up in 1850 things are gearing up this week for the Russian orthodox Christmas this week so expect to see a lot of Russians (well more than normal!) Russian Christmas in Courchevel

Weather-wise we have had a brilliant start to the winter season and the conditions are superb at the moment , currently the sun is shining and the pistes are empty so its all good. This is a great time to make the most of no lift queues and head out across the 3 valleys.

Towards the end of the month if you want to see some racing then head over the hill to Meribel to watch the mes giant slalom (Coupe d’Europe) on 28th & 29th January !

If you are still looking for work then do not despair at this time of the year as a few jobs start to appear again over the next week or so due to injuries or staff not really working out in their role etc.
