  • It was a dangerous drive up to the alpine resort in summer with a 15 km dirt road that has no lights or barricades. But it was so so worth it up there. There are quite a number of activities from mountain carting, mountain biking, gondola up the mountain and even stargazing at night! Would highly recommend the stargazing at night! You can also do short hikes up the mountain and if you are lucky you can see some leftover ice during summer which was a real surprise ◡̈ great experience ◡̈
  • Amazing experience! Total worth the money! I love it most because was perfect for first time ski :)
