The closest airport to Courchevel

The closest airpot to Courchevel ski resort is actually in Courchevel itself. The Courchevel Altiport is based at the top of a mountain and with its very short runway is considered an extreme airport, because there is no go-round procedure for landings and there are no runway lighting aids. It is still possible to fly here on a smaller plane such as a fixed wing or a helicopter and you will see it in use during your ski trip. We can highly recommend sitting in the bar and plane spotting whilst having a break from your snowboarding and skiing, and if you require Whiterides can transfer you from Courchevel airport to any of the local resorts or ski resorts further afield.

However if you are not feel extremely brave and would prefer to use a more popular airpot Chambery airport is the closest offering a transfer time of just 1hr 30minutes.
