We visited the ski resort mid-November. It was the first ski of the season for us and we focused only on practicing on the magic carpet, which is adjacent to the main building (Beginner area). I am not able to give you information about the other activities as most of it was still closed for the early season. This resort is a good option if you do not want to travel far and if you have young kids who are early beginners.
