Biolay Chairlift Selfie Cam

Ride the Biolay chairlift and don’t forget to smile as you near the top. An automatic selfie cam is waiting to snap your whole ski squad on each chair. Ski off the top of the lift and look straight ahead, there’s a touch screen to download your hi-res photo for the gram.

Nothing shows the world how awesome your ski trip is that an Insta post direct from the madness of slopeside apres at La Folie Douce. Live DJ’s, themed show, champagne sprays and dancing on tables. Nothing better!

Highest Point of 3 Valleys

Time for an adventure to the highest point in The 3 Valleys. Ski uninterrupted to Val Thorens before flying way way up to over 3,200 metres. The views from here are stunningly breathtaking. Instagram or not, it’s a certain photo opportunity.

Top of Marmottes/Suisses

Find your way to the top of where the Marmottes and Suisses chairlifts meet and there is always a surprise to capture your attention. Each season a new sculpture is delivered via helicopter to greet skiers throughout the winter. Check out this Capitan America themed Gorilla placed here for 2020:

Mont Blanc from the top of Plantrey

If you know where to look on a clear day then you can happily see Mont Blanc in the distance. If you turn right from the top of the Plantrey chairlift you’ll get a beautiful shot of Mont Blanc lined up behind Mont Jovet.

Le Grand Bec from Le Praz

My personal favourite mountain view in Courchevel is the view of Le Grand Bec from Le Praz. The 3000+ metre mountain overlooks the valley and you can spot it from the iconic Nike tick shape. Wait for sunset and she’ll glow orange for you!
