Which lift pass is best for me? Serre Chevalier lift passes…
Understanding Serre Chevalier’s lift system
Serre Chevalier stretches all the way from the main town of Briançon at 1200 metres altitude to the alpine spa village of Le Monêtier les Bains at 1500 metres altitude. The ski area elevates up to 2830 metres altitude (the top of the Y’ret chair lift situated on the right of the piste map), offers 250km of marked pistes and boasts an abundance of off-piste and tree-skiing (particularly towards ‘Monêtier’, its highest sector.) In other words, this is a big ski resort!
For most skiers, the best value for money lies in buying the ‘Serre Chevalier’ lift pass and not one which is limited to just one of its four sectors.

I have never skied before, which pass should I buy?
If you are new to skiing, Serre Chevalier has several free lifts. For example, Villeneuve and Monêtier have rope tows and Beginner Lift Passes (17 € per day). However, you may need a ‘bigger’ lift pass on Day 2 or Day 3 if you are skiing with a ski school. Contact Us if you would like some help deciding what to do.
Is there a Family Deal?
Serre Chevalier offers great savings for families, including children up to 21 years old. Read our separate article on lift passes for families.
I arrive at lunchtime on my first day and have a couple of hours to spare – can I ski?
Get on your skis or snowboard! If you haven’t already bought a lift pass and you’re staying for the usual week-long holiday, then you can buy a 3 hour pass (for the afternoon) for 46,30€ and then buy a 6 day lift pass for 277€ (total 323,30€). Or just get the 7 day pass for a few euros more at 326€. If you already have your six day ski pass but it’s not valid until a day later, get yourself an afternoon three hour pass for 46,30 € (adult price 2021-22).
I love skiing but I wouldn’t mind a bit of flexibility to have a day off here and there
Serre Chevalier has a ‘5 of 7’ offer, therefore you can get lift passes for five days of skiing out of seven. This is 267€ (adult price 2021-22). It’s only a 10€ saving when compared to the 6 day price… but it gives you a bit of flexibility.
“Actually, I won’t be skiing”
No problem! You can still use the ski lifts with a ‘pedestrian’ lift pass. We have written a handy article for non-skiers in Serre Chevalier here.
Save 20% – ski early and/or late in the season!
Public prices are discounted by 20% for the first two weeks of the season (9-22 December 2023) and from 6-21 April 2024!
