We skied here for a day. We were used to skiing in Austria and France. If you've skied in Europe, don't bother skiing here. It's smaller than the smallest of resorts in Europe. To be fair, they have done the best with what they've got....More

Good snow Clear sky lots of fun. We enjoyed hitting the slopes here. The equipment hire is fast and efficient. Plenty of runs, but lots of short ones, no so many long runs. Decent canteen area with lots of ski holders'

Oh that sounds like fun. The bar at top is accessible by chairlift then you ski or rode down to it. Not really suitable for pedestrians. There is a great cafe at the base though with views down the valley and up mountain and... More
