You will be transferred from the Loft to the Clubhouse, welcomed by your pro for the day. After a short warm up, your pro works on your preparation before the tee time, gives you the secrets of the course and ensures you are set to go.

At the end of your parcours, join the chef and his brigade for a 3-course menu and drinks at the Clubhouse.

Altogether, this creates a skiing arena with 44 lifts and 125 km of ski slopes.

In addition there are three snowparks, a snow kindergarten, 44 km of cross-country skiing trails, sledging runs and numerous winter walking routes – not to mention a lively après-ski scene. Those in need of relaxation can visit the amenities and wellness centres at the thermal baths in Lavey.
