Overcrowded snow park with bumpy slopes. Shopping plaza too commercialised. The areas with heater (in winter) are those with point of sales counter eg shops, restaurants. Areas without point of sales counters largely do not have shelters or heating systems.

The whole resort is big and includes a shopping center . We stayed in one of the cabins and although it wasn't a modern place it was nice and comfortable. Be aware that the dining options are limited in the evening .

We enjoyed our ski sessions. Nice slopes for beginners and there are shuttle buses to take you around the resorts. A bit pricey though, it’s better to bring your own jacket/ski pants.

Yes you can purchase lift tickets. Also they have a lot of ski related gear to rent but I am not sure it includes rubber boots
