Home to three main villages and the historic town of Briançon, the Serre Chevalier Valley is an exciting ski area for schools. With direct slope access, our hotel sits in the calm and picturesque village of Chantemerle. Easy for students to explore, the sunny ski area stretches above the hotel, with interconnecting ski areas. Chantemerle is a small and safe traditional ski village with shops, restaurants and bars all at the bottom of the famous Luc Alphand ski run.
Once they’ve kicked off their ski boots, your group have a choice of après activities: there’s a bowling alley, village centre and thermal baths at Monetier or historic streets at Briançon to discover.
The fifth biggest ski resort in France, Serre Chevalier has something for everyone. Beginners have plenty of scope, with nursery slopes at mid-station to gain confidence on as well as easy greens at altitude, meaning they can ski the whole mountain. Fast lifts or shuttle buses connect each ski area and village. A third of the ski area is tree-lined, making navigation easier even when it’s snowing.
Intermediates love the sense of travel as they whizz around the sunny slopes, taking the lead from their instructors to push their skiing to the next level.
