Full review

I just came back from a great week in this powderheaven:) Came in with great expectations and this place fullfilled them all! 4 perfect sunny days, split up with 2 days of 20cm new powdersnow made the offpiste amazing. The mixed terrain made for all experiencelevels was a good teacher for my snowboard and offpiste experience(medium). You can have it all here, from vertical drops in deep powder to the less steep, but awsome mountainsides in untouched powder. Some of the places are avalancheprone, so take precations and listen to locals and the avalanche/snow-reports. The only nag for my part, is the lifts and all the asian tourists that fill up the lower lifts and gondol to the top - all the time taking pictures and taking up skiiers space, but you can avoid the 2 gondols to the top by taking the chairlifts from 1'st stop, as they dont go there.
