OUR SERVICE TO SERRE CHEVALIER NOW BEEN CANCELLED FOR THE ENTIRE 2020 / 2021 SKI SEASON
Unfortunately, with the latest batch of flight cancellations into Grenoble we have have had to cancel our service to Serre Chevalier for the 2020 / 2021 ski season. We are very sorry to our customers for this.
However, we are still running a regular service to Bourg d’Oisans (the village at the bottom of the mountain) and the Lac du Chambon (a bus stop further up the mountain towards Serre Chevalier). You can select either of these stops from our online booking form. From both stops you can catch a taxi for the remaining journey. There also public buses but they are not that regular.

We do plan on re-instating this route for the 2021 / 2022 ski season. Once again, our sincere apologies to our customers for this.

SERRE CHEVALIER SKI RESORT
Serre Chevalier is not just one resort but more a collection of towns spread along the valley floor. It is situation in the Southern French Alps, in the departement of Hautes-Alpes. Each town is about 8km apart from each other, connected by a busy road that has free public buses running back and forth quite frequently. It’s is important to research each town before you book your holiday, as each as its own pros and cons. For instance, Monetiers les Bains has a quiet, authentic village feel to it whilst Villeneuve (literally translated to new town!) has a more modern feel. The highest town in France, Briancon, is a decent size with a year round population and a stunning old fort.
The ski area is quite varied but with north facing slopes and a good snowfall record, it’s fairly snowsure. The 61 ski lifts covers 410 hectares of marked ski runs. The highest elevation is 2,800m and the villages are between 1,200m – 1,550m. It has 13 blacks, 30 reds, 25 blues, 13 greens, set in beautiful wooded mountains.
