Courchevel, Climbing

Courchevel wouldn’t necessarily be at the top of most serious climbers list of places to be however, it’s not entirely void of cliff hanging opportunities. On Les Grandes Combes near Courchevel 1550 there is an outdoor climbing wall sporting routes of varying length and technical difficulty. It’s ideal for beginners and seasoned climbers looking for somewhere easily accessible to practice. At the forum in Courchevel 1850 there is also an indoor wall that is especially welcome on those unpleasant but thankfully infrequent bad weather days.

Via Ferrata fans will be pleased to know that the number of routes on offer in Courchevel recently doubled. The resort now offers two routes, each taking between 2 – 3 hours to complete. The newest route at Lac de La Rosiere is ideal for beginners trying the sport for the first time. The more demanding Croix de Verdons route finishes 1200 meters further up the mountain at an altitude of 2739 meters and takes most about 3 hours to complete. Both routes are 600 meters and 800 meters in length respectively.

More experienced climbers would benefit from the services of a local guide who could introduce them to less accessible routes higher up in the mountains. Also several good climbing locations can be found throughout the Vanoise National Park. Again, local guides are best placed to reveal there situations.
