Ski Guiding with New Generation Ski School

Ski Guiding with New Generation Ski School


Ski guiding in France is legal only when hiring a fully qualified instructor or high mountain guide. There are strong arguments for this new ruling (2013) mainly linked to the safety of skiers and boarders which of course is paramount, no-one can argue with that.

Gavin Crosby of New Generation Ski School Serre Chevalier, a BASI instructor and ex-trainer for BASI, is based in Serre Chevalier and has developed the following guided days and adventures for intermediate to advanced skiers.


For confident blue run skiers and above looking for a day exploring Serre Chevalier and finding the best snow: proXplore Serre Che’ Experience

An epic couple of days cruising the whole of Serre Chevalier, from MONETIER LES BAINS spa village, with a backdrop of the Dôme du Monêtier glacier nestling in the Ecrins National Park, to UNESCO World Heritage Site Briançon full of sunny restaurants and home to Vauban’s remarkable medieval forts! Gavin will take you down his favourite runs and find the best snow on the mountain.

1 day, 3-6 skiers
99€ per person


For red run skiers and above wanting to tackle some more challenging terrain and get lots of mileage in: proXplore Serre Che’ Steeps

You’ll ski many of the red and black runs in the valley, hunting down the best snow in Monêtier then up and over into Serre Che’s sprawling Vallons de la Cucumelle with rolling fields of snow. You’ll continue on and off piste towards Chantemerle where, after a bite to eat, you’ll up the tempo and take on the Piste Luc Alphand named after the local Downhill hero himself. 7000 vertical metres a day anyone?

1 day, 3-6 skiers
