Getting around
A car really isn't necessary if you're here to ski as there are free ski buses taking you the 2km to the slopes, all day, every day. Out of ski season there are a few buses that take you further afield, and there are regular buses into town all day, but a car or bikes will mean you can really explore the area and see all it has to offer.
