Stayed here last night in the hope of hitting the slopes today. Unfortunately the slopes were closed due to too much snow. If it wasn't for this place we would have been super disappointed. Great food, wicked atmosphere, nice friendly staff. Cool bar with good beer. Rooms were cozy. No tvs, no phone reception (although you can pay for wifi) which was ace! Everyone talking, chatting to strangers and having a great time instead of being glued to their phones.
Right next to the access road for the pistes.
Amazing lake views
Petrol station on site for top ups
