Serre Chevalier is a friendly and unpretentious resort with access to some marvellously varied terrain and plenty of tree-lined runs. The 250km of pistes suit beginners and intermediates perfectly, with long reds and easily accessible off-piste, whilst there's also a good selection of harder off-piste options for expert skiers and snowboarders.

Think of Serre Chevalier as the laid-back country cousin of A-list French resorts such as Val d'Isere or Courchevel. It is smaller and less high-tech, but friendlier and more relaxed, with bags of character. The Chalet Charlotte is situated in Monêtier-Les-Bains, which is quieter and altogether the most charming and picturesque of all the villages in the valley.

Whilst skiing in Serre Chevalier you won't just be confined to France, as mountain passes for Serre Chevalier allow you to pop over the mountain and ride into Italy for the day, and riders of all levels can enjoy the diverse runs and glorious views. Serre Chevalier is best enjoyed whilst cruising one of the many tree-lined runs which link a series of picturesque mountain villages.

 

ON THE MOUNTAIN

Serre Chevalier appeals to the traveller - Its vast piste areas are marked over four main 'sectors', each one positioned above a village. Travelling from one area to another is usually enough to satisfy the keenest sense of mountain wanderlust and provides enough runs to last a season, let alone a week's inclusive holiday with Ski Miquel.

For the more adventurous skier or snowboarder, Serre Chevalier has a well-maintained terrain park. Those not brave enough to try the kickers and rails can take in the sights from a nearby chillout and BBQ area. Don't be put off by the hair-raising nature of some of Serre Chevalier's more challenging runs (speed junkies should ride the Olympic Luc Alphand black run) - the resort is a haven for beginners, intermediates and experts alike. Your Ski Miquel guide will take you across hours of well-groomed, sweeping bowl areas until the nearest apres-ski hangout comes calling.

 

APRES-SKI

The mood for a night out in Serre Chevalier is relaxed and informal. You'll find plenty of that at the Chalet-Hotel Charlotte, but those holidaymakers looking to find some fun away from their base camp for an evening won't be short of ideas for a fun night out. Live bands and happy hours can be found in La Grotte, whilst other popular hangouts in the valley include Loco Loco and Le Frog.

Serre Chevalier also has two nightclubs - La Baita and Bam Bam - although there's also plenty to do for the early-to-beds. Locations for torchlight descents, ice rinks, floodlit ice driving tracks, and the local spa and fitness centre (complete with muscle-soothing jacuzzis and saunas) are all within easy reach. Your Ski Miquel guide will tell you how to find the best activities to suit you.

Coronavirus update & advice for guests

Please understand that we are receiving a large number of telephone calls and e-mails at the moment, so we ask you to be patient and we will respond to all enquiries as soon as we are able to.

The coronavirus situation has had a huge impact on travel and holiday plans, and we regret to say that all our resorts have now been closed for the remainder of the 2019/20 winter season as a precaution to help restrict the spread of coronavirus in Europe.

The sudden closure of resorts in this manner is something that is unprecedented in the entire 40-year history of Ski Miquel’s operation, and we are of course very saddened by this outcome.

We would like to thank you for your support and co-operation at this difficult time, and we hope to be able to take you away on holiday again in the future.  In this respect, please rest assured that we will be working hard to ensure our prices for next winter are released as soon as possible, so that you will then be able to look forward to your next ski trip.

 

If you are in resort

For those of you who are currently still out in resort, please rest assured that the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff is our highest priority.  We will ensure that we get you home to the UK as soon as practically possible, and we will continue to provide further updates via your Resort Manager.

As your holiday was curtailed following departure due to circumstances beyond our control, refunds will not be made for any unused portion of your package holiday.  However, we will of course support you in any claim you wish to submit to your insurance company.

 

If your holiday was due in the coming weeks

Due to the circumstances, we have had to cancel all future holidays for this season.

In accordance with advice received from our industry bodies, it is recommended that you contact your insurance company and make a claim for travel disruption as a result of enforced closure of our chalet-hotels and resorts.

We will of course assist wherever possible by supporting you with any documentation (e.g. copy invoices) or any other evidence you may require in order for you to pursue your claim successfully, and we will also be able to issue a refund for any extras (i.e. lift passes and/or equipment rental).  Please contact us to request a refund for your extras and provide us with your booking reference and bank account details to enable us to process the refund for you.

A refund for the main holiday cost will be provided in the event that your insurance company does not honour your claim.  Should you require Ski Miquel to provide a refund for the main holiday cost, please provide us with written confirmation of the rejection of your claim from your insurance company.

Alternatively, if you would like to have first choice of the availability for the next winter season, Ski Miquel will offer you a 5% discount on any holiday that is available, and we would simply be able to carry your funds over as a credit towards your next holiday.

 

If you decided not to travel of your own accord

Ski Miquel policy has been to follow advice from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) and local regional government for each ski resort, thus continuing to run our holidays unless instructed not to do so by either the UK government or local regional authorities.

If you decided not to travel of your own accord and the FCO advice did not advise against travel at that time, we are not able to offer any refund for your holiday and our usual cancellation terms will apply.  Equally, if we have made the decision to cancel holidays to a given destination and you had chosen to cancel of your own accord prior to us taking that action, we will not offer a refund retrospectively.

We will of course be pleased to assist by providing any documentation you may need to support your claim to your insurance company.
