Thanks a lot !
Hence Hochgurgl used to be accessible from Obergurgl, only by ski bus. But now in is accessible by direct Gondela.

Thanks a lot !
No a ski can not be "Accessible" in the term " Easy to ride"..... well not in my launguage
matr is using correct enough English for his translation.
I had a look at an online dictionary and thesaurus (bored - raining, can't get on with things) and the use of accessible in this context seems reasonable.
I couldn't see a "single" word that could replace it. Using a short phrase would be another way.
Such as ...
suitable for many skiers
or possibly undemanding?
Personally I would go with accessible.
Yes I hate Volkl skis, definitely not the ones for me , even though I believe they are actually great brand.
And yes OldAndy,you understood it well, accessible would mean suitable for skiers. Like a ski with an accessibility of 1/5 is difficult to ride, recommended to advanced level skiers. A ski with an accessibility of 5/5 is very accessible, anyone can ride it.
Do I make sense ? If you see that on a website, would you immediately think "Oh, this d*** site isn't english !"
Thanks for your help anyways.
