We know how important it is to find useful and reliable information about La Tania – or any ski resort – before your holiday. The internet can be such a helpful place with loads of ski sites out there, but it can also feel like a black hole when you don’t know where to look. Especially if it’s a place you’ve never been to before. And from our experience, the official Courchevel website often lacks the finer details you need.
After years of scouring the internet ourselves, we’ve found our go-to ski websites. Here’s our list of the top 5 we recommend to help you in your holiday planning. A few are Courchevel-specific, and a few cover loads of resorts across the Alps.
1. La Tania.co.uk
lantania.co.uk is packed with loads of useful information about La Tania and Courchevel. So try not to get too distracted by all the ads and focus on the content, and you’ll find this site to be really helpful.
They provide the latest updates for the resort including resort opening and closing dates, events, and what changes the resort is making over the summer for the coming year. It will likely be the only place you can find an up-to-date La Tania bus timetable online as well – bookmark it! Really it’s the ultimate guide to all things La Tania, so if you have a good dig around, you can find what you’re after.
2. See Courchevel
Formerly known as Courchnet, this is another great resource. It’s a great hub of information for Courchevel. You’ll find exhaustive lists of activities, restaurants, child care, ski schools, ski rental and more. Sometimes it can be hard to navigate and feel like you’re lost in a sea of information, but stick to using the menu and you should be able to find exactly what you’re after.
It’s also a great place to find lift pass prices.
3. Planet Ski
Planet Ski has been around now for over 10 years, and is really the place to go for ski industry news. Headed up by a former BBC journalist, the site is updated regularly throughout the year and they write about everything from weather reports to gear reviews, ski holiday deals and the latest ski news. Currently you can find a lot of COVID-19 and the ski industry info here (in case you haven’t had enough of it!).
Basically if you want to keep up to date on everything within the European ski industry, this is the place to head.
4. In the Snow
Both a magazine and an online publication, In the Snow goes beyond just European ski resorts with info on US & Canadian resorts as well.
This is a great site to find quality ski videos – from gear reviews, to interviews and ski tips. If you like video content, this is the place to go. One of their newer series is White Out which is a TV-like segment of all things ski industry, right on their YouTube channel.
Beyond Courchevel and the Three Valleys, WeLove2ski offers loads of information for a variety of resorts around the Alps. It also offers gear reviews, video tips and family skiing advice.
One reason why we love this site is because it offers a lot of practical tips in terms of improving your skiing. They’ve got a whole section on how to ski which covers your first time on skis to how you be confident in powder – and everything in between. So if you’re after helpful ski tips, this is a great place to go.
