This year is special for your favorite ski resort! Indeed, Courchevel is blowing 70 candles in 2017. 70 years of enjoying ski, 70 years of innovations that would be celebrated as it should be. Festivities to come during all the season.
Created in 1946 by the Savoie county council, Courchevel quickly became an international reference in winter sports. The aim at that time was to give access to ski to everyone and to increase the economy of the region after WW II. It was at that time the first resort built on a virgin site. Everything has been created thanks to the work of 2 architects Laurent Chappis & Maurice Michaud. In 1946, 3 slopes was open to the clients, it is the beginning of a glorious ascension. The first hotel of the resort quickly followed. In the 50’s the resort started its development with hotels apartments, shops, slopes, ski lifts… Courchevel and its success story became famous worldwide.
Several exhibitions are organized during the season to discover the past of the resort such as « Bon baisers de Courchevel : 70 ans de cartes postales ». A special tour is also possible as well as « Ski Show Neige et Feu 70 ans » in February 2017. We do not celebrate 70 years old every day.
The Alpin queen never seems to be that young and trendy and will make you dream endlessly. Courchevel is a wonderful place we like to discover every year at the New Solarium Hotel.
From Courchevel with love!
