Lifts open at 9am but the cold will keep you off the mountain til 10 at least and then the lifts close at 4 - a short expensive day all in all. And if you're thinking of bringing your children make sure you check your mortgage payments at the door - the costs of childcare & ski school are outrageous! In terms of actual ski runs - it's boring although you can't deny the resort's claim of plentiful snow - it's just icey kind of powder though.As for signage re runs forget it - you'll never know if you're about to head down black moguls or just a simple run home- BEYOND annoying!! Thumbs up for The Stash - the only run to put a smile on my dial; pity for us that the closed for one of our 4 days skiing. Good food in the village but you'll need a car to get around.
