Delightful small village but with plenty to do. lots of friendly dutch and english people. busy at times on the slopes, but with the funicular it is only 5 minutes until you are at the top of the hartkaiser. runs on ellmau side were limited in number but it is very easy to get to scheffau and soll to explore loads of runs. piste map does leave a lot to be desired and we found it a bit confusing. off piste is good but limited in tree runs as the trees are too close together.
