Skiing in Serre Chevalier
One of our all-time favourite ski area for the Directors at Zenith, Serre Chevalier is a gem of a resort although it remains less well known on the British market than it should.
The ski resort of Serre Chevalier vallee
If you arrive from Grenoble over the Col du Lauteret the first village is Monetier Les Bains – which, as the name suggests, is a spa village. The final town at the far end is Briançon which, at 1,200m above sea level is the highest town in Europe and boasts more than 300 days sunshine a year. All the villages are linked by one ski area – the Grand Serre Chevalier.
The old town of Briancon is a fortified town built by Vauban and is now protected by Unesco. Extra activities in resort - Ice rink, skidoo, ice driving track, indoor swimming pool, Spa (sauna, jacuzzi,massages etc), Paragliding school, Riding school, Cinéma.
The new thermal baths in Monetier Les Bains, has natural thermal waters which are heated to 45 degrees and the complex has lots of different spa facilities designed to help you relax
More than 80% of the ski area is above 2000m which means that the area is snow sure from mid December through to end of April.
