The ski area's not too impressive in the winter: it's small, although the terrain itself is quite good. It is however good for beginners and those who want other things to do (walks, shopping and the Olympia swimming complex for a start). It's also good for cross-country skiers - one of the best areas in the world.


It has two main mountains (for walking or skiing) - one is the round hill "Gschwandkopf" and the other is a series of mountains, known incorrectly as "Roßhütte" after the large mountain restaurant half-way up.


The village has existed as a farming village for centuries but has only grown to its present since since the mid-1970s. Development has now slowed, and the town probably won't grow much more.
