Evening Entertainment

Ski trips aren't just about skiing! In Serre Chevalier, when you're done enjoying the slopes for the day, there are still plenty of après-ski activities to keep the students entertained. With four towns within easy reach of the slopes and a fascinating local history to discover, your students will enjoy an adventure-packed school trip when they visit Serre Chevalier.

Bowling - Chantemerle

Ice Skating - Briançon, Chantemerle & Monêtier

Swimming - Briançon, Villeneuve and Monêtier

With no shortage of restaurant options at your hotel and in the surrounding area, your group can enjoy delicious food wherever you go – and we've found a pizza or crepe night always goes down a treat! Depending on your itinerary, you'll then have the option to take your group out into the local town or one of the nearby towns to enjoy a range of activities. 

If the students are looking for a bit of friendly competition, we can take your group to one of the local bowling alleys, or see if their new skiing skills translate to the ice at one of the area's many ice skating rinks. Depending on dates, you may have the opportunity to watch Les Diables Rouges – a top league French ice hockey team – play a match against an opposing team. If the students still have energy to burn off after a long day, there are also plenty of supervised swimming pools nearby, or opportunities for floodlit night skiing, which is available two times a week at the foot of the mountain by Villeneuve.

Elsewhere, Briançon offers students an excursion to see the Fortifications of Vauban – a must for anyone interested in history. These fortifications protected the town, the mountain pass, and the surrounding region from the Austrians in the 17th century and are just as impressive today as they were back then. With various forts, churches, and bridges to explore, this UNESCO World Heritage Site always makes for a great history lesson.

Alternatively, students can learn about the incredibly important work of mountain rescuers and the type of instruments they use to locate avalanche victims on a simulated avalanche rescue session. Splitting into groups, the students will race against each other to locate the targets hidden in the snow, all while learning about the risks posed to anyone living in cold, mountain regions.
