The charming village, which consists of upmarket chalet-style hotels spread around a small valley basin, makes a comfortable place to be isolated, at least until the beer runs out - more so than Zurs, in a bleak setting up near the summit of the pass.
Plus points: Pretty village and ski area. Fair-sized, varied ski area linked with Zurs. Excellent beginners' area at Oberlech. Plenty of intermediate and easy pistes. Good off-piste potential.
Minus points: Not much challenging piste skiing. High prices and swanky clientele. Tricky road access. Long airport transfers (for an Austrian resort). Surprisingly poor mountain restaurants (for a smart Austrian resort).
