“Much better than expected!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

The ski area is great and really in on a par now with the larger alpine areas. Lots of variety, efficient lifts, reasonable restaurants and good mountain access. All in all - fantastic!

“Impressive ski sloaps”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

I took a journey off and went to ski (not on this trip though, that was on january 2011). I was very impressed by the quality of the snow and how large the resort is. You never ski twice on the same sloap the same day if you dont want too. Excellent price of forfaits too, the cheapest in Europe I would say.

“Do not ski on ice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

In April snow melts during the day and then freezes at night. In the morning you have to ski carefully because in some shady places there are icy surfaces. Your skis must be sharp and in the best condition!

In the afternoon the snow is slightly melted which makes skiing slower and less comfortable. I think it is much better in February or March.

“Large area, decent facilities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

Really enjoyed a recent trip. I'm a fast skiier and didn't get bored of the piste options. They are well maintained. Really good choice of ski parks and great nursery slopes. Plenty of red, blue and black pistes (in that order) and off-piste looks like it could be amazing after a dump (almost pisted when I went!). Not many (if any?) green pistes but blues were generally easy. It does have a relatively short season though - it was mid-March and definitely spring. Plenty of snack bars and resorts which are reasonably priced for European ski resorts. If you drink and smoke lots it must be heaven with no tax. Only downside is slightly 'cheap' feel and smoke inside.
