Full review

The owners in order to maximise the profit neglect safety. Nobody from the staff including instructors takes care of the order on the slope . People with small children (even with prams) wander happily between skiers. On the approach to the lifts total chaos reigns. The skiers step on one another skis and manoeuvre dangerously with the poles frantically trying to get to the lift first. The restaurants at the entrance (attention -close often before the lift stops) serve alcohol and quite often one can meet the drunken skiers on the slope. That is a pity that there is no culture of safety because the people working there are generally very friendly and bravely endure the worst weather and other adverse conditions, including unruly clients. The ski hire is often very crowded and the small shop I would recommend to avoid entirely. There is no such thing as replacement of the faulty merchandise, only "repairs", for which you wait for weeks while you have to buy replacement at your cost, preferably somewhere else.
