A friendly location with good slopes and plenty of access to other areas via lifts. The only problem was the weather. We would suggest going in February.

The facilities are world class, the variety of ski run options from beginners through to the experts. Wide open ski runs all perfectly groomed, to narrow winding roads for the adventurous. The ski routes enable you to travel many kilometres to numerous restaurants/rest areas. It...More
