  • Gorgeous views. Not too crowded. Great snow.
  • Amazing views from the very top but a bit annoyingly g to get to the actual lift which is either a walk up a hill carrying skis boots etc or there is one e bus that goes a ridiculously round favour route to get here.
  • Busy in the holiday, great when it's quiet. If you like snow
  • Chose to go to here, because it cost only 25 euro to the top, using 2 gondolas.
  • Well orgenized ski site
