Great views of snowy mountains. Big sandy area to side of road. Kids had fun playing in the snow.

A sandy area just off the highway. (No toilets.) It's an amazing, unique landscape with a great view of the mountain. Kids can play among the grassy bumps. We loved it.
Downsides are the road noise from the highway, and that people sometimes drive through on their way to the Tukino skifield.
The site was deserted when we stayed in July, although people turned up in the morning.
