Visitor Reviews of Candanchu

Alfredo from Spain writes:

Excelente estación en proceso de regeneración. una clásica para los esquiadores en un entorno incomparable.
Ha pasado unos años de crisis y mala gestión pero ahora parece que esta reaccionando y mejorando bastantes aspectos de cara al esquiador.
El único pero los remontes antiguos, pero por el resto sigue siendo una de las grandes.
Una estación donde la montaña es montaña, no un circo.
