Courchevel was conquered by Clan Smoke Jaguar in September 3050 during the Fourth Wave of Operation REVIVAL. It involved the Trinary Command, First Assault Supernova and Second Assault Supernova of the 362nd Assault Cluster facing off against the defending Tenth Alshain Regulars. While the Tenth Regulars had prepared hardened positions on the Harcourt Plains to face the Smoke Jaguars, they were surprised on the first day of battle when the fast-moving 'Mechs of the two Supernovas arrived an hour early and caught them in the open. The engagement quickly became a bloodbath, with the Tenth fighting a series of intense battles to extricate themselves and fall back towards the rocky ground of Dragon's Rift. Star Colonel Emilie Wimmer had expected such a maneuver though, and her Command Trinary was waiting for them in the Rift when the DCMS forces arrived. The tattered regiment finally surrendered shortly after dawn on the second day.
The planet was attacked again during the Fifth Wave in December 3051, this time by Clan Nova Cat as part of a Trial of Possession for control of the planet. The Trial took place at Dragon's Rift between the Command Trinary of the Fourth Nova Cat Guards and the Seventh Battle Trinary of the Second Jaguar Regulars. The Smoke Jaguar garrison engaged in a relentless frontal assault against the Nova Cats and, although the Nova Cat Guards attempted to flank them, the heavier 'Mechs of the Second Jaguar Regulars succeeded in punching through their enemy's lines. Unfortunately one of the Smoke Jaguar warriors, in a frustrated and foolish move, fired on two Nova Cat opponents at once. The rules of zellbrigen broken, the fight degenerated into a grand melee and after the dust cleared the Nova Cats were able to claim victory on account of having one functional 'Mech still standing.
Black Thorns Raid
In July 3057, the Combine employed Black Thorns mercenary unit launched a raid against a nearly completed Clan Nova Cat factory complex on Courchevel. Unfortunately for the mercenaries, Nova Cat OmniFighters succeeded in crippling their DropShip on approach and forced a scattered combat drop onto the world, with the newly arrived front-line Forty-sixth Nova Cat Cavaliers leading the charge to capture them as the Fourteenth Provisional Garrison Cluster took and repaired their DropShip. While unable to destroy the factory, the battered Black Thorns were able to reclaim their DropShip and escape off-world after their commander Jeremiah Rose defeated the Fourteenth Garrison Cluster's Elemental commander in single combat.  
Courchevel was among the Nova Cat worlds "invaded" as part of Operation BULLDOG's second wave in July 3059. The Trial of Possession for the world was to be decided via a gunnery contest between the Forty-sixth Nova Cat Cavaliers CO Star Colonel Mill Watson and Ryuken-roku's Tai-sa Alexis Vanharobik as per a prearranged batchall. Meeting on the Gasperri Plains where the Nova Cats had arranged a one-kilometer gunnery range, both participants put on a startling display of skill, but Star Colonel Watson and his Nova Cat conceded when Katana Cluster-holder Vanharobik's hit the final bull's-eye at more than six hundred meters with both his Gunslinger's Gauss Rifles while at the apex of a sixty-meter jump.
