In 1951 the outfits and installations that existed at the time made possible the organization of the World University Winter Games. The resort has known its most significant flourishing for the last 30 or 40 years: new hotels have been built and new slopes and cable transport installations have appeared. There are 9 slopes and 7 such installations nowadays.
