Serre Chevalier Ski Resort
Often considered the hidden gem of the southern French Alps, Serre Chevalier is comprised of four villages sharing a huge 250km of high quality, varied terrain.
There are four resort bases to choose from in the Serre Chevalier valley, with Villeneuve and Le Villard Laté providing the best bases at the heart of the ski area. Terrain is on offer for all abilities, including some good beginner zones both on the hill and in the valley, great intermediate cruising terrain both within and above the trees and open powder bowls capping the ski area.
To make the most of the resort’s off piste potential, join one of the four Ski Club Freshtracks Off Piste Instruction Holidays heading out to the resort this winter.
What's New for 2019/20?
Serre Chevalier has spent a significant amount of money on two new chairlifts during the off season. The first new lift is a 6 person chairlift replacing the existing Eychauda lift. This will make it much quicker to go from Monêtier to Villeneuve. The second new lift is a 4 person replacement for the Cibouït chairlift.
Last winter, Serre Chevalier was the first ski resort to produce its own electricity, combining three types of renewable energy. The resort is aiming to produce 30% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2021 and prior to this season it opened four new solar panel sites and installed a new wind turbine at the top of Prorel.
