Gets plenty of snow but suffers from a limited amount of accessibleterrain. Fresh snow can be found on the sides of the large bowl that encompasses the ski area, but to get to itrequires plenty of traversing, and again, the skiing here doesn’t come cheap. Spectacular scenery and pretty average on-pisteruns that are intermediate difficulty at best. But for the powder enthusiast, this place is a dream come truewith some fantastic runs through pine forest that is just dense enough to keep most skiers out but open enoughto make skiing there plenty of fun. Offers amazing runs or, for the most daring, a climb above avalanche fences to findmore powder stashes below. Massive off-piste areas, although sometimes it takes a bit of exploringto find the best snow. Most skiers who go spend their day sliding up and down a couple of massive icy rampsabove the gondola mid-station. Little do they know that the trees beneath the mid-station are hiding a huge powdery slopethat’s an adventure playground for the three or four folks intrepid enough to find it each day. An important aspect offree skiing is that much of the powder is accessible inside ski area boundaries where avalanche danger has beenmitigated by the use of explosives following heavy snowfalls. However, skiers should be aware of the risks involved,keep tabs on local conditions, ski with a group, carry safety equipment and steer clear of areas where thereis potential for avalanches. superb off-piste skiing.
