The people at the slopes does'nt want to go uphill their slopes. In spite of nobody does downhill ski and all lifts were not open, even though there was powder, perhaps they lack in skills in doing it. I don't know, so I have to found my own ways up through the woods to the free hills.
This does not belong to the rating on this hotel in contrary the staff make it possible to drive me up two times to a location where I received at the upper free hills. My opinion, it was perhaps strange for them to go ski tours on trails and uphill. Here in Austria 700,000 are doing it, so they have do accept this some day. This remark is only for the "ski tourist" on trails. But you can reach other summits Hatis,Mt. Tezhler, Aragats from there with the taxi easily to do your trail.
The staff was super and helped me in erverything I want to do. The breakfast was very good, the rooms large and with comfort. The landscape is marvelous and imposant. You can go up to 3000 m and the perspective around the armenian moutains is super.
The visit to Sevan was most welcome for a day the weather was not so good to do my sport, also an extra dinner (Fish from Sevan Sea) was in the prize and a very good dish.
I will visit it for some days a soon as I come again in this area because Hatis,Mt. Tezhler from Dilijan are waiting for me as the weather was for this not stable enough. The hotel is a good "basecamp" for trails in winter and/or summer.
