See is surprisingly varying

See is about 20 minutes away from Ischgl (17 km). There are busses in either direction, but we took our car for convenience. There was a parking right at the lift which is good for 350 cars, but as we were on the first day of the season, we could literaly park in front of the gondola. The Medrigjoch gondola takes you up to 1802 meters. There are a total of 9 lifts in the domain which give access to 41 km of slopes (8 km blue, 25 km red and 8 km black).

Domain description

See is surprisingly varying and a compact ski domain. This domain might be perfect for families who want to learn to ski in a relaxed environment. But I’m convinced that even advanced skiers can amuse themselves a day in this domain.

Once arrived at the Mittelstation we explored the blue slope number 11 to warm up our legs. It’s an easy going slope which is perfect for beginners. The only tricky part in my opinion is that you cross several times the black slope number 10. When it’s a little more crowded, it might not trivial. Also the fast people on the black slope should think about the crossing skiers.

We then explored the slopes around the Rossmoos lift. This lift is an older lift for 4 people without bubble. The lift goes extremely slow. That was a real bummer as the slopes below were awesome and as we were the first people we were back at the lift in no time. Not in proportion to the time you are on the lift. This is a downside of this domain.

Later we explored the area around the Versing lift which was built in 2014. Here we experienced what it must be to have a private slope and lift. There was literaly nobody in this area. The slope 31 was heavenly! We went a couple of time up and down imaging this was our private domain ūüôā

We descended via piste 1 which was nice and varying. It is between the village, we had to look a bit where it was heading. Near the end we had to take a short black slope (3) to continue our area, but later we saw that you can avoid it by taking piste (2). So if you do not fancy the black slope, look for the way in the corner to skip it.

Conclusion

We had a great time in this smaller domain and for sure will visit it again in the coming years when we are around in the area. 

From a weather point of view it might be better to explore the domain in the oposite direction. In the morning the sun was mainly in the Mittelstation area and the area around Versing was in the shadow. No problem as we had great weather, but you might first want to enjoy the sun in the central area before heading to the Versing area.
