The bus in Courchevel is free and designed to make it easy for skiers to get around. The main bus route runs from early in the morning until well past midnight.
The main Courchevel bus route runs from the valley floor of Bozel up to 1850 via Saint Bon, La Tania, Le Praz, Village (1550), Moriond (1650) before arriving in the heart of Courchevel 1850.
During the winter the bus runs regularly from each village, roughly every hour from La Tania, every 30 minutes from Le Praz and Village (1550) and every 10 minutes between Moriond (1650) and 1850. There is just one road up and down the mountain so it’s hard to get lost. You may sometimes need to change at the Aquamotion stop to continue up and down the hill.
You can check the Courchevel bus timetable for complete up-to-date routes and times or even use this live bus update to show the next busses. Live updates are also shown on digital screens at all major stops.
Smaller ski busses also help you get around each Courchevel village. In 1850 you can use busses to get from your accommodation to the centre of town. So it’s easy to get up and down from areas like Jardin Alpin, Altiport, Bellecotte and Chenus.
Moriond (1650) has a bus running from the centre up to Belvedere. Village (1550) has a bus running through the area and up the Brigues road where many chalets are located.
Pedestrian Ski Lifts
Courchevel’s network of modern ski lifts is also on hand to help you explore, even if you are not skiing.
The Jardin Alpin gondola in Courchevel 1850 runs in through the day into the evening with several different stops so many chalets and hotel guests can use this to get into and out of town.
Grangettes gondola in Village (1550) serves as a link to Courchevel 1850 from 7.45am until 11.30pm so you can move easily between the town ski villages on foot throughout the day.
The updated Le Praz gondola enables you to travel between Le Praz and Courchevel 1850 in just 6 minutes. It’s open from 7.45am until 11.30pm for pedestrians to travel up and down the mountain.
