Ski Slopes

Situated right on the ski slopes of Courchevel 1650, Portetta is a 3 Valleys hotel at the end of the Belvedere piste. During your holiday, you can ski or snowboard right down to our terrace, remove your skis and within two steps be sitting down and enjoying one of our Italian style hot chocolates in the sun. With a ski school next door you can even watch your kids learn to ski. The ski slopes in Courchevel 1650 are wide, covered in snow and not as busy as 1850. Courchevel 1650 is well known for its off piste and cross country skiing. With 66km of cross country ski runs throughout the forest there is plenty of fun to be had for those of you who like to push yourselves that little bit further.

Ski Schools

Portetta is located in between the top two ski schools in Courchevel, ESF and New Generation. We work closely with both ski schools and would always be happy to recommend instructors or guides for your week ahead.

There are plenty of different options when bookings ski lessons or guides:

Private Lessons (alone or in a group)
Group Lessons
Ski Guide (can take you off piste)
Skills sessions (to focus on particular areas)
Race Camps


Being in the heart of Courchevel 1650 means you are situated on the tip of Parc National de la Vanoise which is the stunning national park. It is fantastic for off piste skiing and if you are lucky you may see a few chamois making their way across the mountain or furry Marmotte's poking their heads out to greet you.
