Briançon

The beautiful, historic town of Briançon is located in Serre Chevalier Vallée at a higher altitude than any other resort in Europe. There are plenty of nice shops and restaurants in the charming old centre of town. During the 19th century and up until the beginning of the 20th century the town figured as a military base due to its strategic location close to the Italian border. The impressive forts that can be found in and around the town stand as remnants of these past times.

In the new part of Briançon you will find our Résidence Le Signal du Prorel situated right by the piste. Because snow canons cover this piste it is possible to ski down right to your doorstep during most of the season!

Briançon

  • Attractive streets with many shops
  • Varied ski area for all levels
  • Authentic town

Skiing in Serre Chevalier Vallee

The ski area of Serre Chevalier Vallée has become more famous in recent years and we can understand why. The resort has 250 km of slopes and 65 lifts transporting you from peak to peak making it easy to discover the entire area. To be sure that there is always enough snow to ski and snowboards, this ski area has strategically placed snow cannons, making sure that at least 80km of slopes are there for you to enjoy. The resort is getting even better with lots of investment in new lifts and faster connections in recent years! The highest point from where you can ski is at Telesiege Yret, at 2800 metres about sea level. One of the special characteristics of this ski area is that the tree line is at 2150 metres. This means that during most runs, you can enjoy the scenery and the forest around you.

Cross/country skiers have not been forgotten in this area, since there is approximately 40km of track to discover. The north side of this area offers a large variety of activities and magnificent scenery. There is also 20km of snowshoeing trails to discover for those who enjoy hiking.
