This takes you to some breathtaking views of meije and beyond, well worth the trip. There is the option to go to the next station as well which takes you over the 3k meters

One of the legendary freeride places in the world. In doubt to even write about this place, it ain't for the average skieer / boarder. And it would be better if it keeps a bit out of the mainstream. Do you really love pow and...More

This is a place where skiing is the your objective. Hotels are basic, restaurants are OK, nightlife is non existent. But the skiing is great. No queues , no crowds, no posers, just a huge high ungroomed mountain. Perfect!
