Full review

Spent 5 days there between Christmas and New Year. Out of 5 five days, none of them was the resort fully open. The electronic lift status do not work, the website is not updated on time, so you don’t know that the lifts are closed until you arrive at the top of the first run. Lack of snow first, but no lack of rocks on the few runs open... My son's new skis are dead. Then lack of maintenance. The main lift at the base was closed for a full half day (more than 1hr waiting time on the remaining two other lifts). Then wind. Nobody can do anything about that, too bad. But when the wind calms down, the lifts don't open??? This is not a cheap place, and for the price they charge, you expect way more. They hide under the “early season conditions”, then give us an early season price! Two days of OK ski out of 5, 2 * out of 5.
