Snowbeds says

 

Serre-Chevalier is made up of a string of villages set on a valley floor, linked by a busy road.

The area is big, and with more than a dozen points from which to access the ski area there are few bottle-necks getting up to the most snow sure terrain, which is located up above the treeline at 2000 metres. Runs for all abilities are spread around the mountains so you shouldn't get stuck with only a tough route back if you're beginner, or only near flat terrain in front of you if you're an expert.

The appropriate ski Lift Pass will allow you to ski or snowboard in the other Grande Galaxie ski resorts of Briançon, La Grave, Les Deux Alpes and Puy Saint Vincent.

Apres ski
 
Not huge on nightlife there are, none the less, usually one or two lively bars in each centre, particularly Villeneuve at 1400. Here the White Hare Bar in the Hotel Liève Blanc is popular as is Le Frog.
In Chantemerle at 1350 Le Pub Ullivan is a good choice and there's a rare French Karaoke bar, L'Escapade. The resort's two discos La Baita and Bam Bam are both located in Villeneuve.
What others say
 
The Telegraph "This is one of our favourite places. The modern buildings of the main resort areas are off-putting, but get into the original villages and you find the kind of ambience you might look for on a summer holiday – a sort of Provence in the snow, with small family-run hotels and restaurants in old stone buildings."
 
Top Serre Chevalier tips
 
  • A six-day area pass (or rather your receipt) covers a day in each of Les Deux-Alpes, Alpe-d’Huez, Puy-St-Vincent, Montgenèvre/the Milky Way, and a 25% discount on a La Grave day pass. All of these outings are possible by bus, but are easier by car.
  • Driving via Grenoble you use the Col du Lautaret, which can be closed.
  • Le Monêtier is the smallest, quietest and most unspoiled of the main villages,
