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.

SKI MIQUEL UPDATE

 

Whilst we have had a challenging few months following the early closure of our resorts in March, we are now very much looking forward to being able to travel again and getting back out to the mountains for Winter 2020/21, when we will be celebrating our 40th year in business!

 

The health crisis has not stopped our resorts from investing in some major improvements to their facilities, such as the new Grindelwald Eiger fast lift in the Jungfrau ski area, and a new piste in Saalbach leading back to our ski storage facility at the Schattberg lift station, which means no more walking down the street in your ski boots!

 

We have now finalised next season’s prices for all resorts except those in France, but we will be releasing our final prices at the end of this week, and we are already taking bookings for next winter.  Price increases have been held to the absolute minimum and we have already seen a good level of demand, with a waiting list for peak weeks, so please ensure you get your booking confirmed at an early stage.

 

We would like to assure you that your money is safe with Ski Miquel as we are fully financed, and if it should become necessary for us to cancel your holiday due to government action then we will be obliged to return your money to you, including your deposit, as we have done for our guests who had to have their holidays cancelled last season.  Your holiday costs would also be covered by ATOL in the highly unlikely event of company failure.

 

We would also like to assure you that we have plans in place to implement social distancing and extra hygiene measures in our chalets, if we find that such measures are still necessary by the time your holiday comes around.

 

We look forward to welcoming you back for our 40th anniversary season to enjoy some well-earned skiing next winter, so please call us now to discuss your holiday requirements, and thank you for choosing Ski Miquel.
