Serre Chevalier is a friendly and unpretentious resort with access to some marvellously varied terrain and plenty of tree-lined runs. The 250km of pistes suit beginners and intermediates perfectly, with long reds and easily accessible off-piste, whilst there's also a good selection of harder off-piste options for expert skiers and snowboarders.

Think of Serre Chevalier as the laid-back country cousin of A-list French resorts such as Val d'Isere or Courchevel. It is smaller and less high-tech, but friendlier and more relaxed, with bags of character. The Chalet Charlotte is situated in Monêtier-Les-Bains, which is quieter and altogether the most charming and picturesque of all the villages in the valley.

Whilst skiing in Serre Chevalier you won't just be confined to France, as mountain passes for Serre Chevalier allow you to pop over the mountain and ride into Italy for the day, and riders of all levels can enjoy the diverse runs and glorious views. Serre Chevalier is best enjoyed whilst cruising one of the many tree-lined runs which link a series of picturesque mountain villages.

 

ON THE MOUNTAIN

Serre Chevalier appeals to the traveller - Its vast piste areas are marked over four main 'sectors', each one positioned above a village. Travelling from one area to another is usually enough to satisfy the keenest sense of mountain wanderlust and provides enough runs to last a season, let alone a week's inclusive holiday with Ski Miquel.

For the more adventurous skier or snowboarder, Serre Chevalier has a well-maintained terrain park. Those not brave enough to try the kickers and rails can take in the sights from a nearby chillout and BBQ area. Don't be put off by the hair-raising nature of some of Serre Chevalier's more challenging runs (speed junkies should ride the Olympic Luc Alphand black run) - the resort is a haven for beginners, intermediates and experts alike. Your Ski Miquel guide will take you across hours of well-groomed, sweeping bowl areas until the nearest apres-ski hangout comes calling.

 

APRES-SKI

The mood for a night out in Serre Chevalier is relaxed and informal. You'll find plenty of that at the Chalet-Hotel Charlotte, but those holidaymakers looking to find some fun away from their base camp for an evening won't be short of ideas for a fun night out. Live bands and happy hours can be found in La Grotte, whilst other popular hangouts in the valley include Loco Loco and Le Frog.

Serre Chevalier also has two nightclubs - La Baita and Bam Bam - although there's also plenty to do for the early-to-beds. Locations for torchlight descents, ice rinks, floodlit ice driving tracks, and the local spa and fitness centre (complete with muscle-soothing jacuzzis and saunas) are all within easy reach. Your Ski Miquel guide will tell you how to find the best activities to suit you.

SKI MIQUEL UPDATE

 

Many thanks for your patience and co-operation over the last few weeks – These certainly are unprecedented times for all of us, but we are pleased to confirm that all our guests and staff were successfully repatriated last month following the sudden closure of our resorts.

 

If your holiday was cancelled prior to travel

 

For those of you who were unable to travel with us this season due to the abrupt closure of our resorts, we understand you have received a mixed response from your insurance companies, so if you have not been able to claim for the cost of your holiday successfully through your insurers then we will be able to accept a request for a credit or a refund.

 

Please remember we are a small family-run business and our own tour operator liability insurance does not cover any financial liability on our part to refund holiday costs, so we would encourage you to allow us to carry your holiday costs over to next winter, and we will then be able to offer you a 5% discount on your booking for next season.

 

Should you require Ski Miquel to provide a credit or a refund for the main holiday cost, please contact us with confirmation of the rejection of your insurance claim and we will provide you with a link to enable you to complete our online credit/refund request form.

 

Please note that if you pursue a refund through your credit card company and a chargeback is made to Ski Miquel, we may need to charge an administration fee for dealing with this, so we would urge you to contact us directly with your refund request.

 

If your holiday was cancelled whilst you were in resort

 

As your holiday was curtailed following departure and due to circumstances which were entirely beyond our control, we will not be able to provide any refund for the main holiday cost, as by that point we had incurred all of our own costs.  However, we will be able to issue a refund for any unused lift passes and/or equipment rental, and we will support you in any claim you may wish to submit to your insurers by providing any documentation (e.g. copy invoices) or any other evidence you may require.

 

If you decided not to travel of your own accord

 

If you decided not to travel of your own accord and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice did not advise against travel at that time, we are unable to offer any refund for the main holiday cost and our usual cancellation terms will apply.  Equally, if we made the decision to cancel our holidays to a certain destination and you had chosen to cancel of your own accord prior to us taking that action, we will not be able to offer a refund retrospectively.  However, we will be able to issue a refund for any unused lift passes and/or equipment rental, and we will support you in any claim you may wish to submit to your insurers by providing any documentation (e.g. copy invoices) or any other evidence you may require.

 

Winter 2020/21

 

We would like to thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this difficult time, and we hope that you will join us on another ski holiday next winter, when we will be celebrating our 40th year in business!

We are already working on our programme for next season and we will be releasing our prices very soon, so you will then be able to book your holiday and look forward to your next ski trip.

Ralph, Managing Director
