Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Courchevel 1850

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
The 60+Ski club is off to 1850 this weekend and wondered if there's an update on the resort, lunch/food-wise, age appropriate drinking venues plus of course "happy" hours (if they still exist in that part of the world), Any intel welcome

OK, so in resort and I've found a couple of niche places where there's cheapish beers to be had....bearing in mind this is the village that charges upto €29 for a burger!!
The Olympic Bar , sitting under the Olympic hotel, in Rue de Tovets, does a Happy Hour between 6pm & 7pm when the Grolsh is €4 a 'pint' (Standard rate being €6 for the same 50cl pint outside of happy hours.) Wine starts at €4 a glass.
It's a small mid range, laid back- in spite of the existence of a pool table at the front bar area- a bar with decent seating at the back. FREE WiFi is available.
Front of house were Hugo and Tiffany and both gifted English speakers.
Also there's
The "El Pirate Bar" which is the village Tabac with a cramped bar but a few scattered tables away to the side. It's atmosphere ranges from French-PMU-tension to downright rowdy.
Offers nothing other than uncomplicated town bar hospitality and the conventional "Demi" (Kronenbourg in my case) will set you back €2.70
The Pirate is quite well concealed, directly opposite the Residences Belledonne in Rue de Tovets 1850

Head down to The Ski Lodge in Latania - lovely run down to resort, with a good choice for all abilities and soooo much cheaper than 1850!

They changed their names from Connor and Kayleigh when they went to work in Courchevel.....

Thanks for that..We liked the Pizza 'gazeebo' down there BUT it is quite a bit out of the way.

If you get caught in La Tania there is, or certainly was, a free navette that runs quite late back to Courchevel.

The alternative is to end the day in 1650 cheaper than 1850. Or go there for lunch. Good places for lunch on the snow front are Fahrenheit which has a new chef this season. They are doing poke bowls and seared Thai style steak and tuna which were great. Portetta is good for lunch but we had a rubbish dinner there at Christmas high end prices with tiny portions and poor service. For dinner in 1650 Petit Savoyard is very good or the cheap and cheerful alti crepe.
