Around Serre Chevalier, ski resorts for all tastes
The north of the Hautes Alpes is undeniably a land of skiing. What could be more natural than to combine the high altitude of the massifs of our valleys with the exceptional sunshine provided by the proximity of the south?
Serre Chevalier, departure of the Prorel cable car 5 minutes from the campsite
The world-famous resort of Serre Chevalier, accessible in 5 minutes from the campsite (the resort, not the campsite! at least not yet!), concentrates in itself all the winter sports activities.
On the ski area, one of the largest in Europe: 81 slopes of all colours including the mythical Luc Alphand slope, a crazy snowpark, snowshoeing and pedestrian areas, Nordic skiing and cross-country skiing, sledging, a zip line… There is something for everyone here?
Are you into mechanical sports? You can rent a snowmobile or go on the go-karting circuit. And if you are passionate about motor sports, you may want to visit the famous ice circuit, an essential stage in the Andros Trophy, for a first drive or a driving course.
And what about zenitude in all this? Absolutely essential, you will relax at the Grands Bains du Monêtier and in particular in the spectacular outdoor swimming pool with a 360° view on the mountains! For a massage, you will easily find what you are looking for…
The 3 star campsite Iscle de Prelles is 5 minutes away from Briançon and the Prorel cable car, which will take you to the start of the slopes. And you are lucky, we are open all winter, offering adapted services, to welcome you in a chalet or on a pitch!
Puy Saint Vincent, Montgenèvre, La Grave, Pelvoux-Vallouise… Other big names
4 other resorts are easily accessible from the campsite, within a 45 minute radius. During your ski holiday at Iscle de Prelles, you can discover, according to your desires:
- Puy Saint Vincent : A charming family resort in the Pays des Ecrins, this “wind-protected” resort has an exceptional setting and exposure which guarantees excellent snow cover. 75 kilometres of slopes that glide through larch forests… a treat in a “human-sized” resort.
- Montgenèvre : The oldest of the resorts! The most commercial too! The 5th largest ski area in the world, this resort attracts a very large public thanks to the diversity of its 400km of slopes and its 2 slopes, north and south, which allow you to ski in the sun all day long!
- La Grave – La Meije : 1 single lift, the glacier cable car, takes you to the summit, the starting point of a 9km descent, with a 2km difference in altitude, in incredible powder snow! The concept: you choose your own route and create your own track… No wonder this resort is considered as a freeride paradise…
- Pelvoux-Vallouise : A small family resort, but 34km of runs all the same ! Its main asset: you ski at the foot of the very prestigious Barre des Ecrins which culminates at more than 4000m…
Finally, at the temple of skiing, the Iscle de Prelles campsite, by renting a chalet or reserving a camper van pitch, is the best plan for a winter sports holiday!
