Chantemerle

Chantemerle is a lively French village with a famous black Olympic run aptly named the "Olympique". This descent was made famous by the pride of Serre Chevalier Vallée: Luc Alphand. On the edge of the piste you will also find a hotel with the same name: Luc Alphand, the French world champion alpine skier.

The beautiful wide pistes lead to numerous lively bars and further into the village you will find traditional restaurants where you can enjoy a raclette or cheese fondue. Setting out from here you can choose your mode of transport: there is a chair lift, a big cable car and an "egg lift".

The ski resort of Chantemerle is perfect for skiers and snowboarders at every level of experience. The less advanced skier can practice on the wide pistes at the middle station while advanced skiers and snowboarders can easily access the longer more challenging pistes of Villeneuve and Monêtiers via the pistes of Chantemerle.

Serre Chevalier Vallée

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.

Chantemerle, also known as Serre-Chevalier 1350, is situated in between Briancon and Villeneuve. It is a typical wintersports village with a large town square, shops and bars. Villeneuve, also known as SerreChevalier 1400, has also been built as a winter sports village and is also locate centrally in the ski area. Last but not least, Monêtiers-Les-Bains, Serre-Chevalier 1500, has more of a rural feel in comparison to the other villages and is known for its hot springs. The Serre Chevalier boarders the Ecrin National Park, which will give you nice hikes, beautiful scenery and a varied ski area.
