Serre Chevalier, France


The collective name for a dozen villages along the road from the ancient garrison town of Briançon in the southern Alps, sharing a large ski area with varied but mainly intermediate slopes. Think of Serre Chevalier as the laid-back, country cousin of A-list resorts further north, such as Val d’Isère or Courchevel – a bit smaller and a bit less hi-tech, but also friendlier and more relaxed.

Trails: 115 km
Lifts: 29 (+ 39 surface lifts)

    Just came back from a wonderful week in Serre Chevalier. This place is much nicer than what I have experienced in for instance Val d’Isère as it is more relaxed and there are more pistes for intermediates. I think this is really a mekka for all of us that are good skiers but not pros. Snow coverage was not great but I guess that is the same for all resorts right now so now I just have a reason to come back 🙂 Really recommended.

    the skiing is very good but french people are so arrogant. i prefer austria which is opposite, everyone are friendly and it seems like they like tourists whereas the french seem like they would rather just be themselves.
