Ski back to L’Murin, a converted barn that has been designed for afternoon drinking and is commonplace for dancing in your ski boot. The Hotel Col Alto’s Iceberg Lounge bar is also a popular spot.
For non-skiers, there are a range of winter activities still on offer, including an ice rink and a toboggan run, as well as public indoor tennis courts to use. Most lifts are also accessible to pedestrians meaning non-skiers can also enjoy the beautiful views and meet the skiers of the group for lunch on the mountain.
