With a impressive scenery and great hospitality, this skiing resort is the most southern in Europe. It offers sunny days with wonderful snow on its mountains throughout the whole season. Suitable for beginners but also for skiing experts who will enjoy the difficult ski runs like the giant Slalom run. All ski runs are safe guarded and maintained in a very good condition, they are even appropriated for children but if you rather not take chances there is also available a ski-kindergarden for them. There are highly qualified ski instructors and local guides for those who decide to go off-piste. The resort offers everything you need but it’s very basic, probably why it’s consider a good place for beginners because of its cheap prices but still it’s an excellent place for experience skiers who will have a great time flying down the slopes.
