Why Ski Briancon?

Briancon is a French town with a population of 11,465, it has outstanding views and the stunning architecture of the town compliments the back ground nicely. It is a historic town separated into two areas, an upper and a lower both of which are walled. With an altitude of 1,326 metres it is the highest city in the European Union. Most accommodation in Briancon is occupied in the winter months when the population trebles. The town is the base and lowest altitude station of the large Serre Chevalier ski resort.
