How to Ski from Courchevel 1850 to La Tania [And Back]

Want to ski from Courchevel 1850 to La Tania?

Well, it’s very easy to do!

In fact, you only need to take one lift.

The two ski resorts work with one lift pass too. You will be able to ski in La Tania with a Courchevel or Three Valleys lift pass.

Below you will find the quickest routes to take, the choice of lifts depending on your starting location, and pistes based on your ability.


Skiing from Courchevel 1850 to La Tania

Quickest route: 

  1. Chenus gondola
  2. Lanches red run
  3. Folyeres blue run

From the Courchevel 1850 snow front, take the Chenus gondola. 

At the top of Chenus, clip on your skis and ski straight ahead down the Lanches red run. 

Alternatively, you can ski right along the ridge past the top of Bouc Blanc chairlift. Keep going until you see the top of the Plantrey chairlift. Then turn left onto Bouc Blanc red run or Arrolles blue run.

Eventually, all of these pistes arrive at the top of the La Tania gondola. From here you can choose the Folyeres blue run or Plan Fontaine green run. Both of these deliver you to the centre of La Tania village.

Folyeres blue run is a wide rolling slope which gets quite steep at some point. Plan Fontaine is a gentle green run twisting through the trees. 

From Courchevel 1850 you can also take the Plantrey chairlift or Coqs chairlift. This carries you up to the same ridge as Chenus and you can follow the same ski route down to La Tania.
