  • Worth a visit and the dip in the hot pools.... And the restaurant was great as well. Dined with friends from Oz that were there as well.. 
  • A nice complex , but pretty expensive just to sit in a pool ..... the surroundings a nice , but that's about it .....A once only for us . 
  • It is a small ski resort, with only two tracks, but a view that really freak you out. If in the area, and you want to get a little desire to ski, it is a good choice. the road is hard to reach, has q be with good vehicle.
