Visitor Reviews of Serre Chevalier

Paul Jenner from France writes:

We've skied and snowboarded in many resorts in Europe and North America but the only one we've wanted to return to again and again is Monetier-les-Bains, the highest of the villages that together comprise Serre Chevalier. Why? First of all, the skiing and boarding is superb. In addition to the 250km of pistes there are tremendous off-piste possibilities (the Montagnolle, Grand Pré and Voie Jackson to name a few) to suit all levels. When you've exhausted all that you have several other resorts nearby, including La Grave, the off-piste mecca. As to cross-country, there are beautiful trails locally and within easy reach. You'll never be bored. We also like the fact that Monetier is a proper village (with cows) and not purpose-built. We liked it so much that we bought Studio La Petite Corneille (available to rent when we're not there). If you like discos then Monetier isn't for you but if you love the mountains you'll love this place.
