Serre Chevalier in short

  • Plenty of long runs for cruising
  • Stunning tree-lined ski slopes
  • Great off-piste skiing

The rather spread out ski resort of Serre Chevalier is actually made up of 13 smaller and very varied mountain villages, meaning there's plenty of choice of places to stay here. The ski slopes of the Grand Serre-Chevalier ski area (its official name) are a real paradise for skiers who like to cover many kilometers of their ski holidays, offering them the opportunity to cruise the seemingly endless valley runs.

The ski area of Serre Chevalier (one of the largest single resort ski areas in France) offers 250km of north facing slopes (guaranteeing excellent snow conditions) for everyone from beginners to expert skiers! Intermediate skiers can enjoy the ski slopes that run through the Parc National des Ecrins in some of the most stunning scenery in the French Alps, including the endless red runs from the Prorel, Aiguillet and Eduits. For those who like to name names, there is the famous “Olympic Luc Alphand” black run just waiting to be tackled! There is also some amazing off-piste terrain here which is very popular with snowboarders. You can also enjoy the relaxed apres-ski atmosphere in the ski resort of Serre-Chevalier. The lift system is very good here and if ever there is a lack of snow, the award winning sniow making facilities take over the job. The interesting historical town of Briançon is only a few miles away and is well worth visiting.
