After an 8 year gap it was great to ski again and The Hotel Hofer & the friendly Crystal staff certainly made the experience memorable.
The food was plentiful and tasty. The choice of a cooked breakfast, toast, rolls, ham, cheese, yoghurt & cereal eating as much or as little as you want will set you up for the day. Although half board we were offered a packed lunch which we took on a few occasions. After a day on the slopes it was back to the hotel for afternoon tea & a generous slice of cake & cookies. The free bar opened soon after and we all enjoyed the beer & wine. The 3 course evening meal was exceptional and of a high standard.
On our 1st morning we took a taxi costing only 8 euros to the Intersport Rent, next to the gondola where we hired a heated locker for our skis & boots which was a great help. We walked every day to & from the gondola which took about 12 minutes it was a very easy walk which was a bit of a warm up or cool down for our aching muscles
The resort was full of beautiful old buildings with very fashionable shops. Our holiday was the last week of the season so we found some of the shops and bars closed but there was still enough for us to do.
The skiing was made all the better for the late dump of snow at the beginning of the week and we had some glorious days taking every opportunity to ski as many runs as we could.
We will most definitely return
