First time in Serre Chevalier this year and the reason we booked it was (a) my boyfriend had always wanted to ski there, and (b) Darren Turner is based there (Ski School iPhone app), and it turns out you can book private lessons with the man himself. When I discovered that, I had to go, so for me it was... More

Too many slow lifts, not making use of snow cannons, even though the temperatures were suitable. Not very well pisted.

Great skiing experience. Slopes are mostly in great condition and the views are outstanding. People working at the cable cars are very friendly and helpful when the kids are involved. I was missing wind protection at the cable cars.

Not a bad ski area, runs were well maintained and good bar/restaurants on the slopes. The lifts seemed a little dated but were all working fine. Everything was alright but it didn’t have any particular outstanding runs or features but equally you wont be disappointed

Paid a visit to the Ice Rink and frankly, I would avoid, avoid, avoid..... The skates were not sharp and the quality of the ice was poor. Seemed like a while since the Zamboni had been deployed.... After one lap round, I decided that it was safer to hand the skates back in.... Perhaps I visited on a bad day....

Serre Chevalier is a hidden gem of a ski resort, with better long term sun records than most other northern French alp resorts. However, it increasingly needs lift replacement and upgrading. Especially hard to traverse from west to east with bottlenecks only served by button-lifts in the Frejus area. Valley to mid-station tele-cabins are upwards of 50 years old and... More

Love it here. 2nd visit this year (came at the very end of last season). Got a v inexpensive stay over Christmas. Friendly staff, great series of ski resorts joined by bus service (free with your lift pass). Miles of pistes, well kept. Beautiful cafe's in the mountains, amazing views, pistes for all levels of skiers. Highly recommend.
