White figures in the road have been seen as well as ghostly people walking with ski-equipment. Some have said they felt a man following them in the ski chalet, people report their cars stalling at the base of the hill or seeing white, ghostly faces in the rear window of the lodge. Some of the crimes here were never solved. It is no longer in operation and the chalet reportedly burned to the ground.
