Serre Chevalier has an innovative new concept in skier safety training called 'The Reflex,' an area where skiers can test their speed in order to control and improve their braking. With an 80m (300ftb) run-up, skiers aim to stop as quickly and safely as possible, records then show whether their speed was controlled. In another new sector, the Arva Park, skiers are given the chance to gain awareness of the reality of the mountains to help more advanced skiers gain back country skills before they go off-piste.
