As your school group progresses, you'll find more training zones halfway up the mountain, as well as a huge variety of green and blue runs to choose from. You'll even find blue runs meandering all the way down from the summit to the valley floor, giving you some fantastic views out across the Guisane Valley. On your way down, don't forget to stop and try out rolling jumps and banked turns of the "FunnyCross" zone!

For intermediates, the resort features a huge variety of red and black runs that connect across the peaks and take you down to the valley floor below. Around the resort, you'll also find various fun zones dotted around, such as the snowpark and boardercross zones. The snowpark also has different graded runs so that you can always match your ability to what's on offer. Whether you're looking for speed, jumps, rails, deep snow, or off-piste, you'll find it all at Serre Chevalier.
