There are many fun green runs for beginners and first timers as well as several nicely laid out intermediate runs for the more advanced. For those looking for a challenge, there are also several steep black runs and two snow parks, one of which is a beginners park - perfect for those keen to improve their park skills. The resort also has some of the most beautiful and panoramic views in the region due to the incredible mountain ranges nearby and the several lakes that are scattered throughout.
