Barrière Group opens its first hotel in the mountains, Hôtel Barrière Les Neiges

The property, located at the heart of the Trois Vallées ski area, within the Courchevel 1850 resort, has an interior designed by Nathalie Ryan.

The Barrière Group opened its very first hotel in the mountains—the Hôtel Barrière Les Neiges.

The property, located in the Trois Vallées ski area, within the Courchevel 1850 resort, has an interior designed by Nathalie Ryan, who drew inspiration from the surrounding mountains by blending wood and stone with various fabrics. 

The entranceway carpeting was inspired by ski tracks left in the snow, light wood paneling (said to evoke the sunny slopes), light fittings reminiscent of gleaming ice crystals and doors turned from tree bark.
