THE MOST LUXURIOUS SKI RESORT IN THE WORLD Currently, most of North America is suffering through a frigid winter of record-setting low temperatures and wind chill. However, for some alpine adventurers, snow is a luxurious necessity, especially when traveling to the gorgeous mountains of Courchevel, France. Comprised of five villages, Courchevel is the largest ski area on earth with three magnificent, interconnected valleys covering over 600 kilometers of ski slopes. Nestled amongst snowy pines at the highest point in the valley, you will find La Sivoliere, a sophisticated yet charming mountain chalet considered one of the best ski resorts in the world. One of the only places in the valley that organically marries elegance and coziness, the 5-star hotel evokes an authentic spirit of tranquility and privacy. Guests are immediately welcome to the property by its cheerful staff as if entering a good friend’s private home. There is a true sense of place at La Sivoliere. With its 24 guest rooms, 11 suites and 2 recently remodeled apartments; the lodge honors the true Savoy style with wood and stone construction while at the same time capturing a modern, chic flair. Beyond the cutting-edge ski-in/ski-out experience, stunning views and authentic accommodations, guests will enjoy a world-class culinary experience at La Sivoliere’s creatively gourmet restaurant, “1850”. Run by a young, talented chef named Bilal Amrani, his passion for gastronomy began at an early age and is greatly influenced by his work in the south of France, England and Morocco. “My cuisine is inspired by many experiences and travels,” muses Mr. Amrani, who has a fresh, innovative approach to feeding his esteemed guests.
