Serre Chevalier Ski Resort
A somewhat underrated resort, Serre Chevalier has a smorgasboard of goodies to offer its visitors. From a laid back style and friendly locals to excellent food and cheaper prices than those of its northernly neighbours, and, an abundance of quality and diverse terrain – all in all it’s really quite something. If the journalists love it, you know you’re onto a good thing and many are a fan of Serre Chavalier.
The ski area is not a single resort, rather, it is made up of a dozen villages including Briançon, Chantemerle, Monêtier les Bains and Villeneuve which are connected by a bus service. The area comprises 250km of well-linked pistes along the Serre Chevalier Valley between Briançon and Le Monêtier-les-Bains and forms part of the Grande Galaxie ski area. This vast region provides access to 530km of alpine skiing, with 264 individual pistes and is served by 151 ski lifts.
The resort’s altitude ranges from 1200m to 2800m so you can enjoy great skiing in a high mountain atmosphere. The runs, cut in and above a large larch forest, are on the North side of the high long ridge. There are loads of bowls, valley descents and high off-peak faces. Serre Chevalier has phenomenal tree skiing too and is famed for its off-piste.
