We admit, it was a tentative start to the ski season all over the Alpes, but the effort made by Serre Chevalier Vallée ensured we had plenty of ski terrain to play in over Christmas and New Year … and then it snowed again …

So here in Serre Che, we’ve had a busy but awesome January – hence abandoning our Blog for a few weeks! Lots of sunshine and several powder days later and our snow is still in tip-top condition, from Briançon to Monêtier. You may have noticed us showing off on Facebook? 😉

The ski resort has many family-focused activities throughout the season, newly refurbished bars and restaurants to discover, it’s best-ever snow park and fantastic events planned for the coming weeks – to entertain families with children and “crazy” skiers and snowboarders alike.

Keep an eye out for “Air Bag Freestyle”, FatBikes to hire, night skiing and the Descente Flambeaux (torch lit descent)!

If you want a ski challenge with a difference, book your place for the Grand Prix de Serre Chevalier (version 2.0) in March …

The Grand Prix de Serre Chevalier 2017

Challenges for the “gentle” and the “crazy” Serre Chevalier

Originally a pioneering event of the 1980s with a slogan that translates to “The station of the soft and crazy”, the Grand Prix of Serre Chevalier will be revisited to offer a clever mix of derby, enduro, boardercross and Marathon.

2017’s Version 2.0, next month, will involve slalom, tunnels and waterslides – to name a few obstacles – all across the resort, with a course for the “gentle” and a course for the “crazy”, plus a brilliant mini version for kids.

“All identified sliding objects (skis, snowboards, telemark, monoski …) are welcome”

The Grand Prix event starts on Saturday 18th March, with ski pass and accommodation packages available from the official Serre Chevalier website, or you can subscribe with your usual ski pass.
