Visitor Reviews of Grächen

Dave Miller from United States writes:

We have an apartment in Grachen and love the place. However, I wish they would make the pistes larger. There are to many people skiing on to small a area and this makes it to crowded. Think about it. It would be a much better ski area with larger pistes.
