We stopped in late October before the ski runs were operating, but 70% of the store and 60% of the restaurants were open. It was 60-degree weather, not crowded and pleasant walking through the village shopping, and enjoying lunch at the Alpenrose.

Great hiking with a great guide, Ben H. He also apparently does mounting bike guiding and the 4x4 guiding as well. Very knowledgeable, keen sense of humor. If there is a plant or animal he doesn’t know about on this mountain I would be surprised....More
