What's it like at Macugnaga resort?

Macugnaga is a very small resort that gives the impression that you have traveled back in time. The village itself is full of interesting Thirteenth Century buildings and there is a distinct Swiss feel to the place. This is not surprising given its proximity to the Swiss boarder. The cable car at Macugnaga may be old but it is pretty quick and transports you to almost 3000m. From here there are wide open basins, which given the right conditions offer superb free riding. Get a guide and ski over to nearby Saas Fee. In fact Macugnaga is the Italian equivalent to Le Grave in France; long cable cars serving up big descents and proper off-piste terrain. However, there are enough easy slopes to learn on at Macugnaga too and it is a bit quieter than some of the larger resorts.

I went in the winter of 1998 or 1999 I think. First time on piste on a chairlift when there was a huge avalanche. Does anyone remember this?
