Why Ski In Serre Chevalier
Serre Chevalier is popular with French and British skiers, this brings a wide range of off-piste ski guides to the resort, and means they are competitive in pricing and services. The resort has an above-average tree line, which is great for fun tree skiing, but also means guides will still take you out in low visibility or falling snow. In fact, Serre Chevalier is famous for its larch forests; larch trees grow further apart than more common pines, so hopefully better lines and possibly less crashes! In addition, hire an off-piste guide and you’ll explore the resort’s plentiful lift-accessed routes, featuring everything from narrow couloirs to long, leisurely tours.
If you’re relatively new to skiing off piste, consider hiring an instructor, or getting your guide to take you to Monetier where Serre Chevalier has an Arva Park – full of buried transceivers for you to practice ‘rescuing’. In addition, Serre Chevalier has Brute de Neige areas, which are secured but not groomed. The Serre Chevalier area ski pass also covers you for a day skiing in each of Les Deux Alpes, Alpe d’Huez, Puy St Vincent, Montgenèvre, or a discount on a La Grave ski pass. Let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll help you to book the right guide for the job.
