We go here alot in winter and summer great runs and alot quieter than other resorts if you time it right, January is a great time to go to miss the crowds and enjoy the pistes, summer is awesome aswell if you like mtb , Turin is a good place to fly to with a real easy 1hr.45 m transfer straight up to the resorts, highly recommend serre chevalier, love the place hence why we keep going back time and time again. Oh and if you want some nice clothes, visit a shop called outland In chantermal its awesome always packed with amazing kit;) ... Full Review

We travelled in the forst week of February from Luton to Serre Chevallier via Turin for the first time last year. The journey was straightforward. There are plenty of lifts in Serre Chevalier and the queues were short. The snow conditions were excellent and we were able to ski down to the village. Recommend Serre Chevalier highly....

This was a fantastic Mountain range with a wide variety of riding. When it snows here, an absolute blast, long beautiful runs with plenty off trees. Freeriding is phenomenal. Easily spend a week here will no get bored of runs. Riding for all levels. TONS of features....Freestyle the entire mountain, A blast. Not many Extreme features/Cliff drops unless willing to hike. In that case sweet lines available for those who know what they are doing. I even enjoyed the catwalks. ... Full Review

First time. Would return for another go. Plenty of skiing possibilities throughout including a must to visit Montgenevre for upper elevation resort and quiet pistes. Next time hope to get transport to Les Deux Alpes or Alpes D'Huez for day trip. People are friendly and we found a great pub with lovely local beers for apre ski. Lift attendants were great.Traveled with Crystal Ski who were exceptional in their service and care for customers. ... Full Review

We come back to Serre Chevalier year after year and every year find new runs. One of the things our family loves the most is the fast that half the pistes are tree lined. The mountain panorama is magnificent and there is a huge choice of bars, restaurants to go to every night. Getting there by train is a total nightmare, so we get airport transfers from The Alpine Transfer Company now every year, and they are cost effective, prompt and get you there quickly and safely - here's their website for anyone thinking of taking the 10+ hour 3 trains - save yourself the immense hassle - http://www.alpine-transfer-company.com/...

Spend a week and a half in Serre Chevalier and the Alpine skiing was amazing. The XC tracks are a few minutes down the road and are particularly boring unless you go all the way around the Valley (30km) and even then quite unexciting at most points. Back to Alpine, the runs are very varied and absolutely fantastic. There is a lot of room to explore off the piste for technical and thrillseeking skiers/snowboarders but there is also ramps and rails etc if you are into that. The only downside is the cost of the resteraunts on the slope, but if you simply buy your own beforehand that is a problem solved. Top notch resort.... Full Review

Serre Che is the 2nd largest ski resort in the world and is comprised of four main areas: Briancon, Chantemerle, Villeneuve and Monetier. If you are driving there for a days skiing from another resort, leave early to get a parking space and lift-pass as, due to its close proximity to Italy, it can get very busy with Italians as well as locals. Best skiing is in Chantemerle and Villeneuve as Monetier, although beautiful can get quite icey. Briancon is also an intriguing town with its ancient walled forts but ski runs are limited. Whilst skiing in Briancon two weeks ago, I stopped for self service lunch and paid 18euros for a lasagne and chips so unless you are Donald Trump, maybe take a packed lunch! The runs from the top of Villeneuve to the bottom are fantastic with excellent groomed pistes. There is plenty of fun to be had skiing through the trees when its snowing too. Once at the bottom, head to ‘Le Grotte’ for happy hour (5pm-6) and live music. ... Full Review
