Hôtel Barrière Les Neiges, Courchevel 1850, France




French brand Barrière has luxe escapes and casinos dotting France and Switzerland, and this winter it opens its first ski hotel in the heart of chichi Courchevel 1850. The latest spin on the traditional mountain chalet fits 22 guest rooms and 21 suites, each paneled top to bottom in pale larch wood and brimming with midcentury mod furnishings, such as fur-upholstered Eames-style chairs and log cross-cut tables. Big windows and terraces bathe rooms in natural light and frame postcard peak and forest views. Barrière more than covers all the requirements of a Courchevel stay, including a new outpost of famed Parisian brasserie Fouquet’s, a slick spa with an indoor lap pool, and a plush private screening room. A full-service kids club dubbed “Petit VIP” rounds out the resort, ensuring kiddos have fun while you après-ski alongside British royals and Russian oligarchs.
