This is the third time we have visited Serre Chevalier for a long stay, this time for 8 weeks. Why do we come back? Because the snow is excellent despite it being relatively low, the pistes are well groomed and we love all the tree lined red runs particularly at Monetier. In January you can often have the whole run to yourself. Briancon is a lovely medieval town to visit as well, although the skiing on that side is not as good as it gets the sun & can be icy.
