As the main working town of the Serre Chevalier valley, Briancon combines traditional French elegance with modern amenities and an easy connection to 250km of North-facing slopes. Explore the 17th Century fortified centre before treating yourself at one of many classic patisseries surrounded by breathtaking views of the spectacular mountains.
The Serre Chevalier ski area is perfect for intermediate skiers with a range of cruisy blues and reds. Fancy yourself as more of an expert? Not to worry, challenging black slopes and options for off-piste powder bashing provide plenty of advanced skiing enjoyment.
When your ski legs need a rest and your belly is suitably full of cheese and wine, be sure to catch a Briancon Red Devils game at the ice hockey rink, or try your luck at the casino (over 18's only sorry kids).
