Bad preparation of the ists and lifts. Many lifts closed for no reason. The children's area and the meeting point for the workshops are far away and there is a lot of comming with the children.

That it has some off-piste itineraries that are the p * ... And that I had a great time, the snowpark was closed so I can't say anything about it, but the fantastic slopes and if they tread more after the storms, it was all bogged down with snow. Either red slopes or you're left lying.
The empanada that many skiers have. The monitors that put the children under the jumps and therefore you do not see them ... And put them in clear danger ..

It is true that it is a very good season to start (our case) or for quite advanced people. Very happy with the group classes of the schools of the station. 3 days in this season for beginners are perfect. It is a family season, which is neither good nor bad. If you want to have a few drinks then you have where, but there is no young atmosphere. The access road is very good.
In our case, for the time, we could not enjoy the debutantes area very much. Just Monday when we left, a week of heavy snow began and the next weekend I was sure it was much better. In this regard, get well informed about the state of the snow and the part, because if you are intermediate, the snow may not be enough. The upper part of the station usually suffers from the wind, as we were told. I guess this is common to everyone, but on Monday, March 2 they had to close the station and return the money. I understand that it is a bad time to give up $$ but the only open tracks were the ones above and the visibility recognized by the station staff was low. As the pass is common with Astún, they send you there if the conditions are better and so you already manage. I think this is not honest.

Very valuable the Gua-Gua de Astún that takes you to the slopes from the parking lot. In general, the ski lift staff is very friendly and friendly.
The Ski Center is ONE TIMO. We booked some ski lessons in Candanchú, we tried to change them for Astún. First it cost us a lot to get the phone, and when they finally pick it up, they tell us no, that Astún is full and that they have to be in Candanchú, so we stay in Candanchú. When we arrived at the meeting point there was no one, we call back and they tell us that the classes have been referred to Astun and that they have forgotten to let us know. SHAMEFUL. Too many ski lifts, very long lines and that the station was half gas. Few indications about the indications of the clues, it is very difficult to identify which is which only with the plane, few posters with the names.

Easy access, the slopes are well maintained. There is a lot of slope, it is very good for people who know how to ski / snow a minimum, but it is probably too much for beginners, even green ones
The snow was not very good, but it is not the fault of the season because it has been snowing a lot

Wide reds and few people.
That to get the pass we had to queue at the ticket office, as if you bought it there, at other stations they give you the pass at the hotel itself. In addition, parking is very far and walking with ski boots is very complicated. The snow in the lower area was very bad, the machine should pass several times a day. Lots of snow on certain tracks.

It's good that you can ski on both with the same pass
They should be able to replace the pass at the ticket office of one station if you lose it at the other post that forced us to request it again at the same station that we took it out the previous day, which made us lose an hour of skiing and moving by car To the other station.

Astun, more amplitude and track number at the time and with the conditions that were regarding candanchu. Very good the team, always attentive and friendly. Candanchú, is a beautiful station with narrow but fun tracks and beautiful views.
Candanchú, some sections poorly marked, dangerous chair lifts when sitting on them, Very bad snow quality in some sections with hardly any cannons to keep the open tracks in optimal condition. In both stations they miss more basic services such as more variety of ATMs, supermarket, specialized repair shops (I had to do some repair and there were almost no spare parts for snowboards)
