Full review

An excellent resort for first time skiers or the intermediate, with the benefit of having a free ski bus to take you the surrounding villages, which are 15/20 mins away, as you become more proficient. The ski school could not have been better, the instructors were entertaining, encouraging and highly skilled, managing to keeping us all on a fairly even level, and we progressed from the nursery slopes to skiing the Steineplatte surprisingly quickly. We will happily go back next year and have a few days in the intermediate class for both the instruction, and because it was such a pleasure skiing with them. The village itself had everything you need with a bank, a couple of supermarkets, bakers, ski hire/purchase but was not busy and overpopulated. There are plenty of lovely bars and a disco for apres ski, and there are weekly quizzes, sleighrides and curling but this is still a fairly quiet village and doesnt cater for the all night clubbers like some of the bigger resorts. There is also a Sports Wellness centre with table tennis, pool and snooker, a fully equipped gym and a full sized indoor tennis court should you have the energy after the slopes! We stayed at a hotel on the edge of the nursery slopes, with an indoor pool which was a bonus, which was excellent, great food, lovely and clean and nice friendly staff. We loved it and look forward to returning next year.
