TERRIBLE! Lifts constantly out of action. Left with one T Bar for 2 days in one week. Chair lift only opened at 3 pm on another day (Resort closes at 3:30). Staff striving for and achieving new levels of incompetence on a daily basis. Ski park not prepped since late December and now totally unsafe. An accident waiting to happen. Even the locals were complaining, yet all complaints ignored. The worst ski reort on the planet. Don't waste your money here. Go to Hafjell instead.
