What’s New in Serre Chevalier for 2019/20

The latest in our ‘What’s New’ round-ups (after Courchevel and the Portes du Soleil) is Serre Chevalier – and there’s plenty to catch up on…

New Eychauda and Cibouït chairlifts
The Monetier sector will see an EUR8 million investment in two new chairlifts.

Firstly, there will be a brand new 6-person high-speed chairlift to replace the existing Eychauda lift. This will make it much faster to go from Monêtier to Villeneuve. In addition, the Cibouït chairlift will also be replaced with a new 4-person chairlift.

80th Anniversary celebrations
When it was inaugurated in 1941, the Chantemerle gondola was the longest in Europe – it is now one of the symbols of the valley and will celebrate its 80thannniversary in 2021.

Renewable Energy
Last winter, Serre Chevalier was the first ski resort to produce its own electricity combining three types of renewable energy:

– hydroelectricity, through the snow-making network
– 1420 solar-powered photovoltaic panels
– two micro-wind turbines

The resort has a goal of producing 30% of its electricity needs from renewables by 2021. This season will see a new wind turbine installed at the top of Prorel and four new solar panel sites.
