There are no pistes, but you go off-piste wherever you want. It is suitable for those who are advanced and adventurous skiers who have skied off-piste previously or go with a guide. You may not even go up in the lift if you lack avalanche equipment. Could it get more exciting?
At times skiing is allowed by the company of a guide only. During these periods there is a limited number of skiers allowed, around 80 people only, so it sure doesn’t get crowded.
