Now 3 gondolas, 2 cable cars, 1 chairlift, 1 magic carpet.
I was there again in Nov, 26th 'til early Dec, 2018.

Since my last visit in 2007: facilities (2 gondolas and a magic carpet) added, more accommodation, more modern buildings.

Lastly, much more people than 2007. It's good sign to see more people.

I shouldn't comment on snow condition because it was very
early on season.

During my stay 1st cable car didn't work for few days.
