Serre Chevalier in France Resort Guide

Serre Chevalier is big, and with more than a dozen points from which to access the ski area there are few bottle-necks getting up to the most snow sure terrain, which is located up above the treeline at 2000 metres. Runs for all abilities are spread around the mountains so you shouldn't get stuck with only a tough route back if you're beginner, or only near flat terrain in front of you if you're an expert. Beginners have gentle trails by all the villages and separate beginner slopes up the mountain. Intermediates have the most to en-joy with a mixture of glorious long cruising trails up to 10km (6 miles) in length. At Bachas above 1500 there are lots of runs criss-crossing down through the larch forest . Favourite trails include Le Petit Alpes, Grand Gargouille and Bois des Coqs. The lift pass also takes in Montgenevre on the Italian border, from where it is possible to ski, if conditions are right, all the way over to Sestriere and Sauze d'Oulx in Italy, although you need to purchase an 'add on pass' and start early to be able to do so. Advanced skiers also have a lot to enjoy here, including very extensive off-piste and ski touring terrain for which a number of guiding services are available. Those looking for on-piste excitement will find the Olympic Luc Alphand run one of the fastest on the mountain. For moguls try Le Bez and for sheer fun the gullies, chutes and forest of the 'Porridge' trail. There are five cross-country trails in the valley of varying length and difficulty.
