Offer Description

You're in for a full day in the immense ski resort of Serre Chevalier!

You'll meet your instructor in the resort and get a coffee for a good start and talk about the program of the day.
After a quick briefing about the conditions and security, you'll take the ski lifts for a few easy rides to warm up before going crazy on itineraries in the forest, couloirs or anywhere you want. You'll have a choice to picnic in the mountain or stop at a restaurant.

The day should end around 4.30pm with a drink to debrief.


You'll have a choice between many itineraries:
- La Montagnole: a great off-pist area
- La Cucumelle
- Vallon des Corneilles or Tête des Grands Prés: if you feel like climbing on foot to mountain tops
