Piste grooming excellent
Little respect shown to visitors

Full review

My partner and I visited the first week of April. Although it hadn't snowed for some time, the snow on the top half of the mountain was excellent and piste grooming better than anywhere else I have visited (including 3 Vallees, Ischgl etc). However we would not return under any circumstances as there seems little interest in making visitors feel they are getting value for money. The lift passes have no reduction for seniors, and so work out more expensive than the top resorts we've visited in the past. Unfortunately my partner was only able to ski the short beginner accessed by drag lift due to a knee injury (there are two at the top, but only one of these was working when we visited). We were annoyed to find on our 4th day that the only drag shut before 3.30 in the afternoon! Added to that, the two umbrella bars at the top of the gondolas couldn't be bothered to open after Sunday. Ok, there weren't many visitors, but we paid the same price for a lift pass as those visiting in February half term, so we expect the same facilities to be available. Total lack of respect for skiers spending their hard-earned cash. I have drawn these points to the attention of the Tourist Office and they say they will look into it. The skiing here is fabulous for those wanting simple corduroy cruising (me!) and if you want this too I'd recommend the place but check with the tourist office first to see if they are allowing bar owners and lift operators to work whatever hours they choose, or if they have brought them into line. No seasonal reductions and no reduction for seniors is a big drawback too.
