The heart of the skiing area is called Idalp and it's where the two gondolas -Silveretta bahn and Fimba bahn will take you.It's where are located the service shops and sports shop, Ski school, Self service restaurant and Panorama restaurant, the kindergarden.
It's aswell the starting point of the Grat Bahn that takes you to the Pardorama restaurant ,the Velil bahn - blue slope perfect for not so experienced skiers, The Flimjochbahn and the Idjochbahn that take you to Switzerland.
Velill Bahn is the most used chairlift by beginners and itermediate skiers and snowboarders. It's a 6 man chairlift that takes you to Velillscharte - 2556m .
