  • So what's it like?

    Some great tree runs and uncrowded bowls to explore

    Set in the Southern Alps, Serre Chevalier is one of France's most underrated ski resorts, with 250kms of superb runs. The resort is divided into 3 main villages and the historic town of Briançon, all linked by ski runs, an efficient lift system and a regular bus service. Our accommodation is located in Chantemerle and Villeneuve. If you are looking for extensive high altitude skiing, plenty of sunshine, spectacular tree lined mountain scenery and value for money, then Serre Chevalier is for you.

    Ski information

    Beginners

    A safe choice for the complete beginner, with good nursery slopes in each village. There are some good confidence building runs, such as the Grande Alpe at the top of the gondola above Chantmerle.

    Intermediates

    Ski through the Parc National des Ecrins in some of the most glorious scenery in the French Alps, including the long red runs from the Prorel, Aiguillet and Eduits. At Bachas above Monetier, you'll find a wide choice of runs which zig-zag through the trees and Le Petit Alpe, Bois des Coqs and Grande Gargouille above Monetier are firm favourites for getting the adrenalin going. To end a day, Cucumelle is a fantastic long run back to Villeneuve from Bachas.

    Advanced

    A good number of black runs and off-piste are found throughout the ski area. Serre Chevalier is also home to the renowned Luc Alphand 'Olympic Black Run'.
