It’s important to remember that your journey from Grenoble to Serre Chevalier ski resort will take you to a very high altitude. This can present its own potential complications
Grenoble airport sits at almost 400m, while Serre Chevalier ski resort’s altitude ranges from 1200m to 2800m. This journey can present some passengers with mild discomfort. Nausea, headaches and dizziness can be symptoms of the change in air pressure. Young children are the ones most at risk to feeling unwell.
