The hosts provided valuable advice and suggestions, checking which lifts are working, and steering us away from roads unsuitable for our cars (which Internet mapping cheerfully suggsted we should take :-). There are also opportunities for mountain biking and other activities. In winter, all great skiing options are also there.
