We had an excellent time of it. We were there over New Year (Dec 26-Jan 3) so a busy season with the resort pretty full. Nevertheless there were little to no lines at the lifts, everything worked well. Nearly all the lifts are detachable high speed quads. They are designed to connect well so little poleing to do.The terrain is varied - with 50% groomed each day but plenty of moguls and steep for the more advanced skiers. At least enough for a week or so anyway. They have a large beginner area at the top of the mountain but off to one side so slower and clumsier skiers are kept out of the way of those who know what they are doing and want to do it at speed. It's a beautiful place and I loved it. Highly suitable for families.Ski school is fiercely expensive and was a bit shambolic. Class sizes of 8 and different teachers on 5 consecutive days did seem a bit hard on my kids (ages 5 and 7).Overall it is very expensive but you do feel that you get treated royally and are getting something extra for your money.Highly recommended for the well healed, particularly for families.
