Courchevel 1850 has the most shops although you will find grocery, ski hire, and ski clothing shops in all the villages but only 1650 (now called Courchevel Moriond) and 1850 have any sizeable number if you want to indulge in some retail therapy. The shopping in 1850 clearly reflects its clientele with a selection of high-end jewelry and designer clothes shops. Choose from Dior, Prada, Fendi, or Chanel or why not have LaCroix skis with gold inlay? Florists with abundant displays of fresh flowers, lingerie shops with silk underwear, and watches worth more than many houses are all on display and the window shopping is incredible.
That said, there are some great ski wear shops just don’t expect any bargains! And if you need new ski boots and have “difficult feet” then pay a visit to Surefoot in 1850 where advanced technology and expert fitters will find you the perfect boots.
There are 2 weekly markets in Courchevel – one in 1650 (on the road up towards the Marquis corner of town) and one in 1850 on the road below the Croisette. There are around 20-25 stallholders at each market and they sell a range of products from T-shirts, sweatshirts & sunglasses to sweets, cheeses & local sausages.
