End of season. Good weather meant slushy slopes, bad weather brought fresh snow and even powder. The size of ski area and number of chairlift is impressive. Use the map and organize meeting point in case the group gets separated. One regret, not many slope...More

Brilliant area, easy to buzz around with super fast lifts everywhere, tons of easy to access off piste - loads of great mountain huts/restaurants. Only downside was limited trees on flat light days but otherwise one of the best areas I have visited.

Yes it is good for beginners and this area is very close to the gondola station. I would not ski back to to the town though as there are some tricky runs. It is a lovely area and very compact.
Where do you recommend to take girls ages 18-21 skiing in Austria or Switszerland in January?
