Serre Chevalier Mountain Info
The north facing slopes ensure excellent snow conditions. All three villages have nursery slopes for beginners and those around Villeneuve provide easy access to some long green runs above the tree line. It is a haven for intermediate skiers as the resort’s excellent lift system enables a lot of ground to be covered on some well groomed runs. Black runs, moguls and extensive off piste is on offer to whet the appetite of the advanced skier. Snow boarders can make the most of extensive snowboarding terrain, excellent tree skiing and a snow park, with 3 separate areas, boarder cross and a fun course.
