A small café next to the entry as well as a restaurant with a great view of the slopes make sure you don't have to ski on an empty stomach. Due to the relatively small size of the resort as well as its short runs, there are no dining facilities on mountain. However, next to the tubing centre, you can find a kiosk selling snacks as well as warm and cold drinks.
