2nd and last time in Italy. No good for beginners. Queues for bus that runs 1 bus every 15 mins. if you are at the lower end of the village you stand a 100% chance of getting the bus on time. if at the top of the village forget it - you have a 20 min walk uphill to get to the charlift. Otherwise you can spend 30 Euros pp per week to store ski's at top of slope. Bus is 5 euros per week each to travel if you buy a ticket from the Tabac and are lucky enough to get on the bus. Our children had not skied before but the stress on the first day was that we had to quickly fit their ski's give them a rapid lesson in how to move and then shove them onto the chair lift and hope they would learn how to get off quickly. This was to get them to SKI school!!. SKI school was quite good. NO piste information available and piste maps difficult to work out. Lots of lessons to be learnt from Andorra which was excellent and France. High winds kept the "milky Way" closed although snow conditins were good.
