A unique and extensive ski area with a reputation for incredible tree skiing for all levels

With an excellent snow record, the sunny, southern French resort of Serre Chevalier is one of the most atmospheric destinations in the French Alps. Featuring charming old villages, from bustling Villeneuve to the 17th Century, fortified town of Briançon, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the resort is supremely well connected and offers 250km of extensive skiing.

 

Serre Chevalier is famous for the extent of its tree-lined skiing. Trees cover nearly two thirds of the mountain and the woodland runs aren’t just for the experts. Tree-lined, wide greens and narrow blacks ensure tree skiing is accessible for all levels and abilities. And mélèze trees instead of Alpine pines provide the resort with a unique, attractive appearance.

 

The abundant off-piste opportunities on the slopes above Villeneuve and Monêtier make Serre Chevalier a free-riders paradise. Those searching for powder and moguls will find the extensive pistes surprisingly varied. There are excellent on piste routes from the top of the Pic de L’Yret as well as the challenging black run, Luc Alphand into Chantemerle.

 

A popular destination for families, Serre Chevalier is renowned for the friendliness of the locals and you can expect a warm welcome. The local ski schools have an excellent reputation, and there are plenty of winter activities to keep children and adults occupied when not busy skiing and snowboarding.

 

The Serre Chevalier peak, which lends its name to the resort, dominates the Guisane valley in which the charming resort villages are situated. Chantemerle is the ideal village for a family ski holiday. A calm destination which offers plenty of winter activities from ice skating to snow scooters.

 

Villeneuve, in contrast, has a lively après scene and the purpose built section of the village is perfect for enthusiastic skiers who want ready access to the mountain. The delightful little hamlet of Le Bez is only a short distance from Villeneuve. Situated between two gondolas, Le Bez, like its neighbour, also has excellent access to the slopes.

 

Skiing down to Briançon affords excellent views of the old town. While at the top of the valley, Monêtier is the quietest village and home to spectacular thermal baths – a must visit! The distinctive character of Serre Chevalier and its hidden delights are sure to win you over.
