  • The views are breathtaking, the staff very nice and it's beautiful to ski here. My only comment would be regarding the lifts, I felt they are slightly slow - it does definitely slow down the experience, which is a pity as you want to be able to make the most of the day.
  • Very professional staff, good lifts and slopes
  • Very spacious with not too many ppl.
