Amazing ski resort, deserves the name “Pearl of the Alps”! Skied with our 9 year old who is a beginner-intermediate skier and had plenty of skiable runs. Rented skis in town and walked to resort. Awesome lodges with many food choices.

Although the skiing is not extensive, it insufficient for intermediate skiers. Out of peak weeks there are hardly any waits for lifts.

Great service, nice runs and outstanding snow condition made it all a wonderful experience. We were here for the second time and will certainly come back again. The village has a nice atmosphere while not too crowded like in some big skiing areas.

What a great resort! We were a group of 3 guys and between us have many trips in different alpine resorts but this is up there as one of my favourites. The ski area is smaller than many resorts but that didn’t bother us as...More

Visited in Late March and the snow was still very good. Lifts are limited from the bottom with a main Gondola going up to mid mountain. Can be fairly crowded. They did not have a lot of ski lifts that you could get a lot...More

Best to buy tickets in advance as they will be much cheaper - check the SBB website for Supersaver tickets, these are limited in number and will tie you to a specific train time etc but the savings are quite substantial... More
