Beautiful village, great accommodation with Alpenthereme but the skiing is not for me, even my husband found them challenging. Anything less the strong intermediate will not get much skiing at this resort, even the blues are extremely challenging steep, narrow and often icy. Reds would probably be better but too steep for me to enjoy. But that is the same in most of Austria because it’s such steep terrain. So, if you're looking for long flowing blues you won’t find any here. Wish I had found a review like this before I went. But the resort is superb to relax in. Also, there is a lot of waiting around for buses even if they are free,
