This is one of the most interesting mountain I've visited so far. No line ups, no beginners, not a lot of snowboards, fantastic views, cheap lift tickets. The terrain gives you the opportunity to go back country easily. Same as we had no fresh snow during our 3 days stay, we saw not a square cm of ice, even in Pitch Black which is a real "pitch black". Runs are incredibly long and it keeps you "warm" even if the temperature goes a way below zero. We stayed at the Best Western Plus in town (ten minutes drive) where they serve complete breakfast with a big smile.
