Sleeping

The Shemshak Tourist Inn is a small chalet-style hotel about 400m downhill from Shemshak's ski lifts. It's pleasant enough, but note that in ski season there is no direct car access to the hotel – you'll need to climb up 300 steps from the main road.

Ask around both villages about apartment rentals (summer/winter from US$50/70); Saturday to Wednesday will be cheaper and less busy at both resorts.
