Fantastic area with wide slopes for all abilities, great when the weather is nice, go early to avoid the rush for the gondola Short walk up hill To the gondola but worth it

What better way to spend a sunny Spring afternoon then to spend it at the top of the First taking in the fabulous panoramic views? If you do not want to hike you can get to the top by the very comfortable small gondolas. The views of the bucolic countryside on the 25/30 minute gondola trip are beautiful. The views... More

The gondola ride is scenic and goes up to the top of the mountain. There is a good restaurant and gift shop and the option to take the gondola back down the hill if you are not skiing.

The place was packed with skiers and people on sledges so we joined them. Sledges can be hired and the runs are well maintained. As beginners we took the... More

This was a great day long visit. Amazing views, the sky walk was thrilling, the walk to the lake took much longer (90mins) than listed as we had two young kids but it was all worth it.
