Tons of people on the hill but next to no queue for tickets. No queue for pies, and short wait for espresso. That's an impressive operation - thanks for making our day about skiing, and not about queues!

Hi John, yes there is a tobogganing area next to the Magic Carpet. It is great fun! You can bring your own gear or purchase toboggans in the SnoSnop. Ellen
