In an effort to get the Quick Reviews back up and running, here's my Quick Review of Are (where's that angstrom when you need it?)

Plus points
Family-friendly resort with varied skiing, particularly suited to intermediates.
Something for everyone (possibly unless you are a complete beginner)
Few lift queues
Quiet pistes
Three ski areas of Duved, Are By and Are Bjornen offer different skiing experiences

Minus points
Not a lot of cruisy blues
Not a lot for beginners
Gets windy quite often which stops some of the lifts
Expensive food and alcohol
Few too many T bars

8.5/10 - unexpectedly good
