Briancon ski resort sits at the most southern point of the Serre Chevalier Vallée. Briançon ski resort is the largest town across the ski resort and easiest to get to from Italy as it is located on the N94 road which crosses the border through Montgenevre in to the Italian Alps. Another advantage of going to Briancon for a ski holiday is its wider accommodation offering compared to the other smaller villages along the ski resort. However, whilst offering a large range of accommodation, the local lift network and pistes here are arguably the least convenient across the ski network as it is slight bottle neck. There is only one ski lift - Prorel 1 - which is a reasonably slow gondola and during peak skiing season it can become very busy. Also, there is only one red ski run back down to the town. However, ski buses run between the skiing towns and villages in across the resort.

For those looking to learn how to ski, or for beginner skiers, Briancon ski resort offers two easy ski areas which sit on the same side of the mountain as Briancon itself. Therefore, beginners can take Prorel 1 and Prorel 2 gondola lifts up to “Prorel” – an area designed for easy skiing. Here there are two green runs and also a “Fun Cross” ski area near the summit of Col Du Prorel. The two gondola lifts also take skiers back down the mountain to Briancon, which avoid any slightly trickier blue and red runs that wind through the trees back to the town. Briancon is also connected to wider Serre Chevalier ski resort, and there are plenty of larger beginner ski areas on the other side of Col Du Porel – easily reached via pistes and ski lifts from Briancon.

The more confident skier staying in Briancon can take the Myrtilles blue piste from the summit of Col Du Porel – marked on the Briancon piste map - which heads down to the Serre Chevalier side of the ski resort. This ends at the “3 Croix” – a central marker in the Serre Chevalier Vallée Briançon Ski Resort. From here there is an excellent selection of blue and red pistes and ski lifts which venture off in different directions around the mountains. Making it all the way to “Col De La Cucumelle” – near the Les Bains side of the valley – rewards skiers with some panoramic views of the surrounding area.

Advanced skiers should head to “L’Eychauda”, which is one of the highest points in the Serre Chevalier Vallée Briançon Ski Resort area. There are three black runs all spreading off via different routes eventually ending up in the valley at Villeneuve. Skiing from top to bottom here is a great way to get a feel for the ski resort, and gain some speed on the pistes.

Overall, Briancon is a great ski resort for intermediates, although the Serre Chevalier side of the ski resort is where most of the pistes are. Beginners and Experts will both find areas of interest across the resort.
