On a weekend, waiting for the gondola (1.5 hours starting at 8:45 am on a Saturday) can really... read more

The first day arrived at 8:35 and took the first lift at 10:40. The second day arrived at 8:50 and took the first lift at 11:20. The third day I went to a different resort something that I should have done from the beginning.

Even at 7:45 in the morning there is enormous queue at the gondola. In case you go with the car be prepare to wait for the parking as well. On the slopes there are so many people so that it is impossible to ski

Overcrowded and overbooked town! No equipment in the rent shops! Two hours waiting in line for the gondola! No place in restaurants! All that madness for couple of ungroomed pists! Go to normal EUROPEAN RESORTS!

This is a great resort, very good for improving intermediate skiers and beginners. The ski school was excellent. The resort is nice and very good value. The only real problem is the queue for the gondola lift in the morning. We had fast passes as...More

We went to gondola ride at 10am, and we waited in line for almost 2 hours. It cost us 30€ for two people (tickets both ways). It was disappointing when we realized that after that gondola ride we need to wait another line to go...More

The ridiculous queues for the gondola have resulted in us paying for a shuttle bus to the gondola station, but even this is fully booked as everyone has the same idea..... AVOID THE GONDOLA at all costs. There is chaos as anyone staying in the...More
