The area is a destination of two seasons. In summer, between November and April, outdoor activities include fly and trout fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horse-riding and camping amongst the thickets of the forest, enjoying the network of over 20 lakes that punctuate the area. In the winter months between July and September, the focus is largely on winter sports, from when the first snowfall starts to turn the slopes a brilliant white.
