Plenty of green runs, good for beginner. There's a green slope which is quite extensive for beginners. My sister who just started snowboarding loved this place (we tried 3 other resorts in a span of a week)

I visited most of the ski slope around Myoko and this place was the best choice. It has a long, wide and not very steep slope. The best thing about this place is that there are less people than the other ski slope in Myoko....More

Many different slopes to ski. I loved the forest course where you can do a little back country in the woods. Must be a snow boarders paradise because they or not many off limit areas.
