The resort development will feature ski runs with a combined length of around 55 km, snow canons, 24 ski lifts, shelters and ski rentals, roofed parking lots as well as accommodation and leisure facilities and areas for recreation activities as varied as tennis, swimming, caving, trekking and mountain-biking.
