Cheap ski hire Serre Chevalier 1200 Briançon
As the biggest skiing area in the southern French Alps, it would be fair to imagine Serre Chevalier as a large purpose built resort along the lines of Avoriaz, but you’d be very wrong. The villages here all started out life independently and were only grouped and expanded when skiing took off in the area. The historic village centres still stand as focal points in several of these fully evolved hamlets, though the facilities and accommodation have developed significantly in recent years, creating a pleasing juxtaposition between the old and new. Serre Chevalier Briançon stands out among the others for being a more established dwelling; technically Briançon constitutes the highest town in France. This World Heritage Site has retained a host of original features from the 17th century old town, but is still conveniently enough connected to the ski area via gondola. Being one of the central towns in Serre Chevalier, Briançon enjoys a relatively good concentration of nightlife spots, even boasting a casino. There are some excellent restaurants too, primarily traditional family run places serving good, honest mountain food.
Briançon has some great nursery slopes, and though Serre Chevalier in general lacks easy going blue trails, it’s the dream playground of the intermediate, with nearly 100 different piste runs to explore. The skiing is extensive; there’s 15 black runs, as well as some outstanding off-piste. With 3 terrain parks, as well as boarder cross and a quarter pipe, the snowboarding opportunities here are equally as exciting.
