And the highest located of the 3 boroughs is home to exclusive hotels and gourmet restaurants catering to all those that are in search of luxury.
The ski resort itself features 150 km of versified trails for all ability levels. Novices are especially catered to with the “Zen-Zones” where they can practice “first steps” on skis or board without any disturbance by more skilled winter athletes. Professional guidance if needed is also available of course.
453 employees guarantee permanent area security on and off the groomed slopes. Snow machines make sure slopes keep covered by a nice blanket of snow at all times.
