The new slope, shaped this summer, will be ready for the winter season and will host all the men’s races for the 2023 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Courchevel.

The extraordinary new run has been named ‘The Eclipse’ and has been acknowledged as one of the hardest ski runs in the world!

The downhill course was designed by Bruno Tuaire, the director of the Courchevel Sports Club and Hannes Trinkl, head of the FIS (International Ski Federation).

You will descend from the top of the Col de la Loze, sitting at 2,234m between Meribel and Courchevel. Descending 3,200 metres, the average incline of the slope is a thrilling 30% before finally arriving in the heart of Le Praz village.

But why the name, L’Eclipse? Well, as you make your way down the slope, you will swoop through a dense forest blocking out all sunlight and creating an… eclipse!

Will you be trying out the Three Valley’s latest black run?
