One of the most popular winter resorts in France and Western Europe, Serre Chevalier, or Serre Che as returning visitors prefer to call it, offers a whooping 250 km of runs for beginners, intermediate and advanced riders alike. The highest snowboarding and ski point is at 2,800 m elevation, while the lowest is at 1,200 m. Due to an amazing investment in this area of 50 million Euros, Serre Chevalier has managed to attract over 1.3 million visitors per year. With such high numbers it’s obvious it has become a huge attraction and thus prices are above the average and also, snowboarding fans are certain to bump into a lot of skiers. If you don’t mind that, you’re bound to have tons of fun in its parks, on the two half pipes and throughout the off-piste tree runs.
