The water front has been totally remodelled and is quite nice. You can play in the water, sit by the beach, eat at a table, or let the kids play in the playground.

Bike trails are everywhere. Lots of ski slopes turn into mountain bike trails in the summer with the ski lifts active. Northstar resort does this.
