The resort usually has excellent snow conditions and over 400 kilometers of ski slopes. It also has a good track record of sunshine hours and usually has beautiful weather.
Most people want to stay for more than a week but since you probably have limited time, have a go at all the 400 kilometers of ski pistes and don’t miss out on the classic tracks such as Paradise,Stairways to Heaven and Grand Banana.
After a snow fall, hurry up and get out into the slopes to experience the wonderful conditions.
