Basically all the runs are suited for either beginners and intermediates, with experts having to do some searching to find some good off-pistes or take a trip to Arabba. The resort also has direct access to the Marmolada glacier, which is great for experts. There are some good runs for snowboarders, again mostly for beginners and intermediates.The Apres SKi scene is relatively quiet, and the resort doesn't offer much in terms of non-ski activities. This is a great place to go if you want to do some skiing, especially for Families with children and beginners.
