The skiing is good fun with fast modern lifts. Nearly all the terrain is graded red/intermediate - a lot of it the kind of red that would be graded black in North Amerrica. There were a few blues, but really they ought to be reds too. The terrain is high which meant we had great skiing. You can ski over the border in to Austria and down to Ischgl, which is a cool thing to be able to do. So it's great for intermediates but not so good for beginners I would guess.
Back in resort we found great restaurants that were very affordable despite the high quality and lots of duty free bargains - much better than airport duty free.
