We were a group of 7 post graduate students/young working people, and most pf us had never skied. We love the trip and really had a phenomenal time at the resort and on the slopes. By the end we could all ski with a level of confidence despite not really getting any lessons.
The service of the Snowtrex team was excellent, responsive and helpful. The accommodation was very small, but as we were skiing the whole day and at the sauna in the afternoon, it just meant we drank wine in a cozy atmosphere in the evening. The snow wasn't great, as we were there the week leading up to Easter, but there were loads of green and blue runs leading into the resort, so it meant that there was a lot for beginners to do comfortably. The red and black runs on the other side of the mountain were easy for the thrill seekers to find, and they were happily occupied too!
We took our own salt, pepper, cleaning cloths, sheets and towels, so there were no extra costs. And there was a small grocery store - Sherpa, at the resort, a 5 min walk from us, so we bought detergent, baguettes, cheese, wine and dinner there - the selection wasn't big but with some creativity we were fine. Our best meal was Raclette - the Sherpa store lent us the machine for free and then sold us the ingredients for 5 euro a person, which was so much fun!
We were worried as some of the reviews were awful for the rooms or equipment, but we had no problems, except that some of the activities didn't seem to be running as it was towards the end of the season (husky sledding, night skiing etc) which was a bit disappointing.
I would go on a Snowtrex holiday again, the value was great and the experience was once in a lifetime!
