A few bonus useful things to know…
- Did you know that around the resort you can find La Pause picnic table sports. Here you can have a little break, check the internet with the free WiFi hotspot and enjoy the wonderful scenery while recharging your telephone for free.
- For the more advanced skier or boarder there are a number of natural pistes scattered around the resort (5 in total!). This means they are left un-groomed and for ‘nature to do the job’. They are however still classified as on piste. Simply look out for the ‘Piste Natur’ sign. These slopes provide a safer way to experience an ‘off-piste’, powder sensation.
