The new slope that will host all the men's races during the 2023 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Courchevel will be ready as of this season. It will be called "L'Éclipse".
Don’t wait until 2023 to discover the men's racetrack for the Alpine World Ski Championships! This winter, the big news for the Courchevel ski area will be: L'Éclipse. This extraordinary new black run can be previewed from December...before it hits the spotlight!
L'Éclipse has already been recognised as one of the most challenging runs in the world. According to the first champions to have studied its layout and had the privilege of descending, The Eclipse will undoubtedly become one of the top 3 most demanding slopes on the world circuit.
Thrill-seeking skiers will delight in descending the vertiginous 3,200 metres from the summit of the Col de la Loze (2,234m). Right at the start, the first thrill comes from the sight of the slope with its average incline of 30%. The second comes lower down, when skiers slide through a dense forest... blocking out the sunlight. Experience zero gravity on this unique run before arriving in the heart of the picturesque village of Praz (1,300m). You emerge into the sunlight with a feeling of having accomplished a tour de force!
