  • The whole thing but still strongly reminiscent Olympia 1936. The area not very neat struck me. Winter transition period it was good, and it can be here and there a little grubby. Otherwise you can see the ski jump and you klineren next to it but it was already BB´s. I must look no second time for my part. Not suitable as a trip for a day. Best take if one is nearby.
