Basically a beginner to intermediate resort with very few steep runs. Off piste there is some great tree skiing, but as we had to find out not open to ski at all.

According to other guys who skied this resort, it was bad luck that they got us right after the first run; usually you should be able to ski off piste all day if you keep an open eye and don’t ski the chair lines.

Lines at the base (beginner) were rather long but as soon as there is no easy way down, there were no lines at all.

Update 2010: The middle of the 3 resorts closed for good. Now you can’t ski the remaining two without driving (car, train) to the other part.
