Serre Chevalier is actually composed of several villages (Chantemerle, Villeneuve, Le Monêtier les Bains), a town; Briançon and various hamlets. Briançon is an old fortified town which gives it an undeniable charm and each of the villages are all very traditional with typical architecture and small streets lined by shops, bars and traditional restaurants. There are buses to travel between the different villages in the valley.
Every village mentioned above as well as the town of Briançon has lifts to join the ski area and its 250km of runs.
The tree line is found quite high here which means that most of the terrain is below the tree line and perfect in case of bad weather.
Some of the black runs are left ungroomed for experts to enjoy the fresh powder after a snowfall others are groomed but quite steep. The area also has great off-piste opportunities! Intermediates will probably be the ones to enjoy the most the ski area with a large amount of red runs.
Beginners will have their special area in each sector as well as blue and green slopes that allow you to visit the other sectors and higher parts of the resort.
Above the sector of Villeneuve, at 2000m is the snowpark of Serre Chevalier. Perfectly adapted for all abilities, it has four zones matching different levels going from easy/beginner to expert/professionals. It also has its own chairlift and a “coolzone” where you can relax and watch the freestylers in action.
For non-skier other activities are available such as ice skating, snowshoeing, sledging and ice climbing. Indoor activities include casinos, cinemas and also pool and spa facilities like the one in Monêtier named “Les Grands Bains”. There are guided tours as well as some cultural sites to visit.
In summer, some lifts are open to go enjoy the great outdoors and the activities that are available in altitude like hiking and mountain biking.
