Irdning may not be the best fit for advanced skiers seeking adrenaline-pumping challenges. The resort primarily caters to beginners and intermediates, with a majority of its slopes being blue and red. While there are a few black runs, they are not particularly steep or long, and may not provide the level of difficulty that advanced skiers typically crave.
