A nice family resort with wide pistes and few trees. Lots of easy off-piste available between runs and serious backcountry skiers can go off the back of the mountain toward Lenzerheide: a linking lift is under development. Good for a long weekend, but not much more. The drive up there from Chur is Switchback Hell, take the train if possible. Lots of flat, poorly connected runs at the bottom of the lifts, skiers, sledders and walkers all mix together in a confusing muddle. Good for: Families and weaker intermediates. Dull for: Strong intermediates and up.
