About the event
Now in its Sixth year, Digital Ski is the online marketing industry's very own not for profit social/networking event on the slopes each year. With just 35 places, the event provides a great opportunity (er, excuse?) to go away with clients, colleagues, contacts and friends for a few busy/relaxing/drunken/productive/active (delete as you see fit) days in France.

Hotel & Resort Details
The Hotel Saint Louis boasts a magnificant location opposite the Bellecote piste in Courchevel 1850. Courchevel is a great French resort and the capital of the Three Valleys, its slopes are vast and its nightlife infamous.
Accommodation is situated within Courchevel 1850 in great ski-in, ski-out location. Courchevel 1850 is the highest of the Courchevel stations and benefits from a number of superb runs back into resort. The skiing is superlative with north-facing homeward slopes, high altitude and snow cannons providing a virtual guarantee of good snow all season.
Beginners and Intermediates
Courchevel is the perfect resort for beginners, with dedicated "ZEN" areas that are affectively designated, fenced off nursery slopes. The best place for beginners tends to be the Pralong and Le Bellecote slopes with a number of green runs available. Intermediates will be spoilt for choice with a huge range of easy blue and varying red runs in Courchevel Valley, the largest valley in the ski area. Courchevel 1850 is really well linked with Courchevel 1650, Courchevel 1550 and La Tania, the links to La Tania are particularly well suited to intermediates with picturesque, tranquil blue runs right down to the resort.
Advanced and Off Piste
Courchevel has a lot to offer advanced and off piste skiers with some of the best black runs in the Trois Vallees, choose from the famous challenging 'grand couloirs' from the top of Saulire or the vast off-piste areas and heart-pumping moguls around Chanrossa chair lift. Don't forget though there are over 600km of piste throughout the Trois Vallees and as an expert or an off piste skier you'll find some magnificent itineraries and routes to challenge you.
