  • Been here for 3 night although the station is real quiet it's actually very nice to hike when almost no one is around. The mountain faces south which is great, and the lift brings you to the top...  more »
  • Beautiful ski resort, good for children and families. Lots of well maintained ski slopes. The resort has games on the snow, husky rides, several restaurants on the slope. The slopes are not very demanding, few black slopes.
