In addition, there are 2 lodges annexes and 8 chalets, which provide an alternative to the traditional hotel room. The main hotel is completely self-contained with the full spectrum of resort services, thus no car is needed as your room is only an elevator ride away from the ski slopes, the dining room and all facilities.
It is the icon of the Ski Center with its characteristic yellow color and its 123 comfortable rooms. All activities are conducted in the same facilities of the hotel since it doesn’t have commercial shops or towns in its surroundings.
