The resort of Serre Chevalier takes its name from the peak that dominates the Guisane Valley and is made up of four separate villages. This fantastic ski area has 250 kilometres of well interconnected pistes, ample off piste opportunities above Villeneuve and Monetier and probably more trees than any other resort in Europe. We've chosen accommodation situated in the villages of Villeneuve and Chantemerle for their good selection of bars, restaurants and shops.

Beginners are well catered for with the ski areas 'discovery' zones which are made up of green pistes, perfect for gaining confidence before expanding your terrain. The 'Petits Domaines' area are great for those of working up to an intermediate level with access to some easy, cruisy blue slopes and a range of red runs to whizz down. You'll also find plenty of slopes here to challenge you if you're an advanced skier or boarder, with 15 black runs with some very steep descents down from the peaks. Serre Chevalier offers some quick powder fixes or whole days of off piste with opportunities for you to go with a guide to really make the most of what these mountains have to offer. The ski area provides some fantastic opportunities for free riding as the whole area is essentially one huge snow park - there are plenty of tight, tree lined runs, ravines and long steeps slopes for you to really push your skills to the limit.
