Clothes Shop
“A more expansive mall full of all your favorite and high end brand stores. While the wife is shopping why not book yourself in for a ski lesson on the worlds largest indoor ski slope located within this mall. After all that hard work pop into Aspres Bar (the only restaurant that serves alcohol in the Mall) for a beer and i recommend the Pizza, nice place with views overlooking the ski slope. ”
