Although it is a relatively new ski resort, it has become popular with winter sports enthusiasts, who also flood its slopes.

There is also a snowboard and a sled track. The total length of the slopes and the network of snow-paths connecting them exceeds 12,000 m.
At the base of the Ski Center there is a new two-storey chalet, distinguished for its modern aesthetics, which is in harmony with the environment.
