Another great option for mixed-ability groups, a school ski trip to Serre Chevalier offers spectacular skiing for all levels. Made up of 13 villages spread across three valleys, Serre Chevalier is the gateway to Ecrins National Park. A south-facing ski resort, Serre Chevalier is famous for its sunshine record and is one of the largest ski areas in France. The villages are all well-served by an excellent lift system and the largest, Briançon, is both the highest city in the European Union (and only Davos is higher in Europe) and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are loads of après-ski activities in the local area, including swimming, ice-skating, pizzerias, discos, bum-boarding and ice hockey matches. Overall, Serre Chevalier is a fantastic choice for a school ski trip to France.

Skiing Information

This is a fantastic resort to choose if you want to use your school ski holiday to introduce your students to snowsports for the first time. The wide nursery slopes and excellent ski schools are ideal for beginners to have the space and support they need to get skiing. And there’s great skiing for intermediates too, with some great runs above the tree line. There’s even something to satisfy the advanced skiers in your group, with Olympic black runs! But what about snowboarders? Well, don’t worry, Serre Chevalier has that covered too, with a fantastic snow park!
