beginners
****
complete beginners are well catered for with a free lift, or a local lift pass for 11 lifts for FF57 per day, covering green runs only. full lift pass necessary for those in the ski school. 
intermediates
*****
vast choice of blue and red runs, with some of the best on Le Signal d'Homme and Plat des Marmottes. no queuing is the norm. pass covers runs in Serre Chevalier and Les Deux Alpes. Skiing available right to the resort, even at season end.  
advanced 
****
confident skiers should try the Sarenne, the longest black run in Europe, at 16km. once started, it must be completed as there are no exits on the descent!. other black runs to try are La Fuma, the Tunnel and the Super Signal mogul field.
snowboarding
*****
go in search for powder in areas such as Gorge de Sarenne and the Glacier de Sarenne. free-stylers will find an impressive pipe and snowboard park. an abundance of natural kickers and rollers around the resort.
