Serre Chevalier

Made up of a series of villages, the ski area Serre Chevalier winds along the valley floor, all with easy access to over 250kms of ski area. South facing offering plenty of sun on clear days, this is a great place to learn to snow kite.   

Based right in the heart of the resort villages of Villeneuve and Chantemerle. All our accommodations and the resorts have a relaxed feel suited to families and couples. The après-ski is similar to most French resorts with something for everyone.

Snow kiting is a popular sport having been offered in the resort since 2006 and it is accessible to all in good general health and suitable to all levels of snow kiter. The school can hire you all the gear for kiting or you can bring your own, which ever suits.

Classes begin at 10:00 to 10:30 am depending on the months and this is confirmed at the time you make your reservation.

Our school welcomes beginners and advanced kiters to help develop your skills and this is done by qualified instructors and state licences that govern on the mountain.

For those not snow kiting, the piste is incredibly varied and suitable for all levels of skier and boarder, so there is enough to provide everyone with some interesting and challenging skiing.

Each session is based on 3 hours instruction and is reccommended for all those that can already ski or snowboard. It's also considered great learning for those that want to progress onto Kitesurfing on water.

Please note: There is a mandatory air licence and insurance charge of £5 for liability and for learners under 18 there is a parental consent form to be filled out by the legal guardian.  We also require you to have insurance that covers snowkiting in case of accident as we want you to enjoy yourself, albiet safely and securely.  

For those that want to try snow kiting, Snowseeker are the first UK Tour Operator to offer this as part of our standard program. For those that want to try it, we can now offer snowkiting holidays in Switzerland, France and Italy.

For those that want to know more, snowkiting uses a kite to tow you on skis and snowboards using the force of the wind by kite to travel miles in total freedom. It’s important to remember that this sport will not always take place in the centre of a ski resort and in some cases you'll need to get a transfer or ski out to the appropriate area, however this is usually a matter of minutes to get to the snowkiting are and if transfers are required, we can organise this for you.

The schools we use have developed over the years with teaching methodologies and practices that enable all those who have an intermediate level of skiing or snowboarding. Very similar to Kitesurfing, you’ll just need a smaller kite, such as a foil or a 3 metre inflatable.

We do offer a selection of courses starting from taster sessions, right through to 2 days tuition and kite hire for the rest of the week.

Simply call or email us with what you think your requirements will be and we'll do the rest. With must lessons based on a course basis over a few days, some of our schools also offer trips out to kiting areas by quad bike and helicopter at very reasonable rates.
