Serre Chevalier

Serre Chevalier is a major ski resort in southeastern France, in the Hautes-Alpes department of the Alps. Near the Parc National des Ecrins, it enjoys a large skiing area, with 250 km of slopes and favourable weather, boasting 300 days of sunshine a year. In Serre Chevalier, 80 km of the slopes are covered by snow cannons to supplement natural snowfall. It is owned by Compagnie des Alpes.
Serre Chevalier consists of the town of Briançon, with the villages of Chantemerle, Villeneuve, and Le Monêtier-les-Bains. World Cup champion ski racer Luc Alphand was born and lives in the valley below the resort.
   The maximum elevation for skiing is at Telesiege Yret at 2,800 m above sea level, and the minimum is 1,200 m , a total vertical drop of 1,600 m.
