This place runs on only 1 ski lift and only has 2 trails open. Last year one lift was closed for the whole season. This year the other chairlift too broke. So they shut down for a couple of week....and then again they only got one lift running again. I was told they will open the fix the other one for next year! These are the oldest chair lifts I have even seen. They probably bought them used in the late 80's from some former soviet republic. The trails are not maintained at all..I have never seen anything like this. There are areas of trails with no snow ....and the are no signs about it. I have seen many beginner skiers fall just because they end up in the mud where there is no snow. There can be also huge ice sheets. This place is plain dangerous. Management/owner doesn't care about keeping skiers safety. Very pricey for the experience that you get, especially if the fire department needs to come and rescue you from the broken lifts.
