Advice for tourists: choose which cable car company you use and check the weather/wind forecast.
1 first options should be City Gondola with new/fast/comfortable ski-lifts but can be busy over weekends and holidays and you need a taxy to the base station. (2 succesive long high capacity gondolas to 2000m, 1 chairlift at 2000m, 2 T-bars at 2000.). They are very active on Facebook with many real-time updates for current weather (good job :)).
2. the 2 succesive old cablecars to 2000m plus one new chairlift 1400-2000m and one old chairlift at 2000m are less crowded but les comfortable with less capacity but they cover almost the same area and they collect you from the city center.

The skipass is not the same (not yet, we hope...).

Apart from the nicely prepared runs this place can be great for off-piste skiers with a decent variety of open and tree runs.
