Night at 9,000ft in the air
About this listing
CONGRATS to Thomas Stroud. Thanks everyone for your participation and keep an eye open for the next incredible nights coming up on Airbnb!!
How does a night in a bubble at 9,000ft sound? You and your intrepid few could be the very first to voluntarily spend an evening in a cable car.
On the night of March 6th, we will be sliding open the doors to a fully equipped cable car. Announce your arrival in style with a cloud of powder after cruising up the slopes on snowmobiles. And prepare to fill your (ski) boots with the traditional ‘Savoyard’ welcome… lots of food and wine.
After a dinner suspended from a cable, at 9,000ft, you’ll spend the night feasting above the clouds surrounded by the breathtaking views of La Saulire, the highest point in Courchevel.
Don’t hit the tartiflette too hard though because in the morning, powdery nirvana awaits. Live the dream and be the first to carve into Courchevel’s slopes.
If this sounds too good to miss, take off your mittens (for ease of typing) and tell us by 11:59pm on Wednesday, 25th February why you’re eager to win this night.
This contest is open to families and groups of 4 people (maximum). As we receive many messages, we won't be able to answer all of them. Rest assured though that each will be taken into consideration.
Vertigo sufferers need not apply.

About the Host, Courchevel
Moi, Courchevel, station mythique des Alpes françaises, je suis nichée au cœur des 3 Vallées, le plus grand domaine skiable au monde. Destination plebiscitée depuis des années par les fondus des sports de glisse venant des quatre coins du monde, j’incarne l’ouverture à l’international et le mélange des cultures.
Mes champs de poudreuse sont réputés dans le monde entier, de même que l’hospitalité des habitants de ma région. Je propose des activités variées pour petits et grands : ski bien sûr, mais aussi balade à cheval ou randonnée.
Je bénéficie d’un cadre grandiose avec un panorama à couper le souffle. 80 % de mes pistes sont situées au-dessus de 1 800 mètres d’altitude et j’offre des lieux magiques, comme la vue sur le Mont Blanc depuis la Saulire et des pistes offrant des sensations fortes comme la mythique piste noire Jean Blanc, au milieu de la forêt.
Si vous aimez les ambiances enneigées, notre téléphérique vous attend.
Membre depuis décembre 2014.
Hi there! I am Courchevel, one of the most famous ski resorts in the French Alps.
Nestled in the 3 Vallées, the largest skiable area in the world, I have been visited for many years by ski fans and have the pleasure of welcoming a diverse range of people and cultures.
The powder here is world famous, as is the regions' hospitality. There is something for everyone, whether it be skiing, trail rides or going for a walk to take advantage of my breathtaking panoramas.
80% of my runs are above 1,800 meters and I have some magical spots to explore such as the view of Mont Blanc from La Saulire or a thrilling experience on Jean Blanc's black run.
If you love the slopes, our cable car is waiting for you.
