The resort itself has one hundred and seventy five kilometres of pistes served by a modern and very efficient lift system that is able to accommodate over eighty-six thousand people every hour. The slopes provide for all levels of skier and boarder, and cross country skiers have one hundred kilometres of trails and boarders have the choice of two snow parks.
