We could watch to granny kids night ski from the window. Huge lower floor ski locker, café & rental shop, next to lift passes and access lift. Best holiday... More

The Alpen Ridge is very conveniently located next to the first ski lift going up the mountain. I could just get my ski gear from the rental shop on the ground floor and slide straight into the ski lift and onto pistes..

We are in a group of 6 people and we rented an unit with 3 rooms, 2 bathrooms. We are very happy with this accommodation, as it is located next to the ski lift (family run for beginners).

We stayed in a Studio room for 2. Staff was always friendly though the Japanese staff may struggle with some English. Accommodation was clean, rather new, bed was comfy, 2 pillows with different "hardness". Loved the powerful hair dryer. The kitchenette had everything you need. Room was cleaned every 2 days. Heater before 8pm was in saving mode. Eco friendly... More
