Since its introduction to our programme in 2010 the Crystal 2000 has been a huge success with families keen to ski in this highly sought after resort and it's not difficult to understand its appeal when you consider all that it offers. This comfortable hotel has all you could wish for when planning a family ski holiday; in-house childcare, excellent facilities, easy access to the slopes, family rooms and suites, and above all, our Esprit commitment to giving you the best ski holiday ever.
Location, location, location!
It is hard to beat a location such as our Chalet Hotel Crystal 2000, being above the main resort centre yet situated right on the slopes of Courchevel 1850. The resort centre is an easy ski away and for après ski we offer our free complimentary minibus shuttle from 9pm-midnight every evening and, on our staff night off, from 7pm-midnight.
Ski Area Access
What more can be said? You walk out of the hotel boot room directly onto the slopes of the Pralong and after one short button lift, can ski down the Bellecôte piste immediately to the heart of 1850! Here, at the centre of La Croisette, the ski schools will meet our guests joining ski or board lessons whilst others can choose to head west to the Méribel valley, or continue down the glorious tree-lined runs to Le Praz or start your day heading high and south up the Saulire. Alternatively you can ski across to the Altiport button and across to the Biollay chairlift. At the end of the ski day you can return directly to the ski room door.
For quicker access to the top of Courchevel the Pralong chairlift from practically outside the hotel takes you across to the Verdons blue run to the Vizelle gondola or the Saulire cable car. You truly are spoilt for choice!
Comfortable Hotel Facilities
The communal areas here are spacious and welcoming, and parents might wish to make the most of the wellness area. The dining room and outside sun-terrace overlook the pistes and provide an ideal viewing spot for watching the early skiers or those on the last run home.
The suites and bedrooms are light and airy and are of varying sizes so will suit most family groups.
Adventure Soft Play Zone
Our Adventure Play Structure is a unique feature here, designed to be enjoyed by children aged 4-12 with its multi-level play zones, which include games, structures to climb upon and a slide to guarantee smiles all around. For younger children, an enclosed, separate play area contains a smaller slide, see-saw rocker and other soft play materials in a safe environment

We have had a superb holiday and would highly recommend the Crystal 2000 and Esprit to our family and friends. Each member of staff has been wonderful... We will definitely choose esprit for our future skiing holidays. Thank you :)
I have never had a better ski holiday. The hotel staff are so good, in fact our group have been so impressed by all the staff...They look good, the service is excellent, they are all super helpful and smile all the time. They couldn't do enough for us. I Have been blown away by the general excellence of the whole stay - thank you.
We cannot fault Esprit/Chalet Hotel Crystal 2000. It meets the need precisely and the staff are the 'icing on the cake'.
