A traditional village linked by chair to a largely intermediate ski area. Snow-making was introduced in the early 1990s and the ski area drastically increased in size in the last years of that decade with doubling of uplift, inclding four new chairs and an 8 passenger gondola, taking the ski terrain up a further 200 metres. The purpose built centre of Formigal with a further 50km of trails is nearby.
