Spent one day here on my way from Geneva to Zurich. The ski resort is limited and mainly south-facing, but the slopes are hilly and fun and follow the mountain well. The offpiste directly below the gondola is obvious and nice, though a lot of cliffs up high that limit the possibilities. From the slow chair lift that takes a peak in the system there is the possibility of offpiste directly adjacent to the piste and the opportunity to go for a short hike (3 mins closest) to a short off-piste ride that takes one back to the lifts but still is a quite fun ride . Additional offpiste rides are marked as trips on the pistemap but the avalanche prevented us from trying it out when we were there.

The view from the bizarre top house above Lake Geneva is brilliant. The rating absolutely ok is because the ride is quite ok for those arriving by morning flights to Geneva and heading for Engelberg-Zurich etc, but want a few hours of traveling on a busy day without a big detour. More than a day's ride, the resort is not worth it.
