Easy to navigate, has a nice long run from the top to the bottom of the mountain. You can still have fun in a variety of conditions
really bad setup for true beginners. comparatively it is quite expensive. You can ride the entire mountain in less than a day

Went up to check it out and thinking it should be a good place for my girlfriend to continue learning how to ski, however that is not the case. It is truly a bad place for beginners. Even though it wasn't fun for her, I still had a good time. I rode small laps off and on piste from all the different lifts, and even had quite of fun on the get down trail that takes you down to the city at the bottom of the gondola. That was actually a good workout, and offered a bit of fun, if you like to hit the side hits and play around. Overall it was a good way to spend a few hours, and the views were amazing, but honestly for an extra 15-20 francs you can a mountain just up the road that is 10x the size with much more elevation and top of the line lifts.
