An excellent resort with something for everybody beginners to intermediates and of course something for the advanced amongst us! A little too busy at the weekend; resembled the rush hour at Tokyo station. Nonetheless a lovely visit for family and friends alike.

Great range of long pistes with plenty of moguls and jumps to improve your skills. Beware the man made moguls here tend to be dug out holes (as opposed to protruding mounds). Like the other Prince resorts, Children under 12 are entitled to a free...More
