Lift Passes

Hands-free lift passes can be bought from the main office at the Ariondaz Gondola, near to the Tourist Information Office. Although you can order lift passes in advance, you still need to collect them, so we would generally recommend buying them when you arrive.

You can buy Family Passes, which work out cheaper when buying 2 or more children’s passes with 2 adults.

Something worth bearing in mind if you are a beginner—the ‘Mickey’ drag lift (to the far left of the Ariondaz gondola) is free to use. This gives a gentle introduction to the easy nursery slope, so if you want to save yourself some money, you may like to try out this drag lift for the first day, before buying a lift pass. They also do a Mini Lift Pass which only costs €28.50 per day, it covers quite a lot of the Courchevel Valley and is much cheaper than buying a full pass. There's limited information on the internet (they obviously don't want to promote this pass!), but you'll find prices here. Ask for details at any of the lift pass offices in the resort.

Experienced skiers with more than a fortnight’s experience would probably benefit from the full Three Valleys lift pass, giving access to Meribel and Val Thorens. If you're intending to ski between 8 - 21 days in the season, consider buying the 3 Valleys Liberty Pass which will save you money. Can only be ordered online before your holiday.

For less experienced skiers, the Courchevel Valley pass offers a huge variety of skiing. You can extend your pass at any time if you wish to ‘do the Three Valleys’, by paying a daily supplement.

At the very beginning of the season, and during the last week of the season, lift passes are available at significantly reduced prices, as the snow conditions cannot always guarantee that all the lifts and pistes will be open.

You can check out the lift pass prices on the Sociétés des 3 Vallées website.
