Visitor reviews for See Ski Resort

    from United Kingdom

    Skied See for the first time on 16 Feb. In short, another well laid out small resort with 40km of well maintained pistes backed up by a modern and efficient lift system bar one old and slow chair lift. The 1400m vertical height difference provides for a very long top to valley station run and with all the slopes facing north this guarantees a long and reliable snow cover.

    There is a good variety of reds and blues and a couple of blacks, which really were reds.For adrenalin freaks, the off-piste opportunities are fantastic both with challenging ski routes and some serious back country runs. Best of all, the pistes were virtually deserted.

    The resort is geared mostly to families and on-mountain subsistance affords great value - spag bog 8.80 euros and Weinerschnitzl 11.00 euros!

    At just over 1,000m, See has the lowest base station in the Paznaunertal but don't let that put you off.

    Definitely recommended for a long weekend or if you are staying in the Paznaunertal and want an away day from Ischgl or one the other resorts in the valley.
