When you have skied in the Alps where every village boasts at least 15 ski slopes, it will seem little poor to come to this place that just has 1 slope (I think blue, though green in the bottom)! But at the end of the...More

The resort has improved and the skiing is great. Different types of accommodation is available, we stayed in a Lodge, shared with friends. Really good facilities, decor is good and the gas heaters kept us through the cold. Restaurant needs improvement, and a shop on-site...More

Hi, I see on the website it states "Main Slope - OPEN 200m ". Would just like to confirm, is only the last 200m of the slope open? Is Afriski not making snow for the rest of the slope (at least up to 800m like July last year?) It surely is cold enough for it....

Response from NauticalVoyager |
The main slope is only at 200m at the moment but the slope is being expanded but without natural snow fall it is taking longer than last year. Still we had a great time this last week.
Hi. Can you visit Afriski for the day without staying over? If so what is the cost?
