    20 years skiing, but I went for the first time. In large shallow child is slippery, I went. Reputation as the children enjoyed in wide shallow. 滑ranaide can go in the snow snow play area, so too can be reached. Solland as soricose quite long, adults can enjoy. At the top is steep and also advanced. The view from the top is amazing. Pretty busy as a drawback, lifts, quad main burn time was 10 minutes.

Salomon rental, price is affordable, but it was very crowded.
