Intermediates will find Serre Chevalier the perfect challenge. The ski area is diverse, having many tree runs and wide open bowls in a number of inter-connected valleys running the length of the resorts.
Many have commented that Serre Chevalier has plenty of ways to push yourself as a skier. That’s because Serre Chevalier offers a host of terrain. For the more experienced skier, there are fantastic broad black runs taking you back down to Villeneuve (e.g. Casse de Boeuf) and in neighbouring Chantemerle you can try the Luc Alpand black run (named after its famous resident champion) for a fast descent down. There are, of course, plenty of off-piste areas too to explore at your leisure including some tree skiing.
Let’s not forget those freestyle parks and a boardercross courses. Snowboarders will find this the perfect resort with a newly-built Snowpark with four zones to suit various skill levels. Past Aravet on the way to Chantemerle, you can try out the Melezone; a freestyle course with wooden features in the larch forest. There’s also a Boardercross zone with nine curves on a 100m drop, plus Funnycross – the perfect place for little ones to try out their boarding skills. You can check your moves out on camera with the Videozone with a live camera and giant screen to capture all your runs.
Heavy investment has made Serre Chevalier an adrenaline junkie’s dream with plenty to try out, like:
Winter Mountain Kart – As a result of its popularity during the summer, this track was extended into winter. Be like Super Mario and take an exhilarating ride down the slopes on a slow-tyre-equipped kart.
Heliskiing – A day away from the slopes as the helicopter flight whisks you up into the mountains for an amazing off-piste skiing experience.
Snowkite – Like kitesurfing, but on skis or board instead! The stunning Lautaret Pass is a world-renowned spot for this sport. Not for the faint-hearted!
