This Ski resort has a number of pistes at the right length with good condition of snow thru out the Winter given its high altitude. The parking is also very close to the pistes and it is not as crowded. Your car may need a set of snow tyre to reach here especially in the middle of Winter.

Very nice place for snow sports

Even though it was slightly crowded, most slopes had enough space to maneuver. The prices are reasonable and the scenery is above the average mountain.
