Tip for cold days.

Out of the cold and into the sauna – and then just enjoy some pampering.

"After an action-packed day in the crisp, clear mountain air, there nothing better than a session in the sauna. Afterwards I recommend enjoying one of our special treatments – such as, ‘Snow melt’ or the ‘Alp queen’."
