In the heart of Provence, between 1400 and 1800 metres altitude, the Mont Serein, a summit on the northern slope of the Mont Ventoux, offers you a ski area in winter and outdoor activities in summer.
Opened at the end of the 1920s under the impetus of the writer, painter and alpinist Pierre de Champeville, the station has never stopped developing.
Today nine lifts – 8 drag lifts and a conveyor belt – take you to its 12 kilometres of slopes devoted to downhill skiing, of which one slope is guaranteed by a snow machine. Seven kilometres are devoted to cross-country skiing and 8 kilometres to snowshoeing. Two other zones have been created for the luge and snowboarding.
In summer, the activities are just as plenty: Devalkart, grass skiing, paragliding, the Jean-Henri Fabre botanical trail, hiking and horseback riding (GR4 and GR9 trails)...
