If necessary, the hotel provides guides to our guests. In addition to the safety perspective, the use of a guide will increase the chance of good skiing and safe, soft snow. The guide makes sure to adapt the activity to the group's skill level. Guide must be booked for minimum 2 days. Booking of a guide is on request, and it is reserved that there are available guides for the current days.
