Courchevel 1. Ski season opens in November and lasts until the end of April. At a peak season it’s better to book a hotel in advance. It’s worth noting that during this period rates at some hotels may be higher.
2. The resort is ideal for family holidays. There are three kindergartens for children from one and a half years old, as well as special children's play clubs and ski schools. Almost everywhere favorable discounts for younger tourists are available.
3. Restaurants and shopping centers accept credit cards, so it’s not necessary to take large amounts of cash. In small shops or modest budget cafes payment with credit card probably won’t succeed. It’s recommended to exchange money only at banks; anyway, some hotels host private exchange offices.
4. Going to fashionable restaurants, you should definitely choose the right outfit. Visitors in a sports clothing or skimpy outfits mayn’t pass into. At the entrance to some of the restaurants special plates with menu and prices are set, so there is always a possibility to get acquainted with the pricing of the place.

6. Valuables should be stored in a room safe. Despite the fact that the resort is very quiet and calm, one shouldn’t forget the basic rules of caution. In public places it is necessary to monitor personal belongings closely and not to leave them unattended.
7. There is a special room for ski and other sports equipment in every hotel. Carrying sports equipment in the room is prohibited. Before you hand over skis and other items for storage, be sure to mark them with a bright ribbon or card with the name of an owner. This will help not to mix up similar equipment.
8. The most popular night spots are located on the territory of big hotels. Many of them are free; exciting entertainment programs are held almost every evening.
