Cross country skiing

Why not join the family for an enjoyable day out cross-country skiing? The scenery is wonderful and you'll keep fit at the same time. It's a gentler way to take in the fresh pine scents and the sheer tranquility and beauty of winter in the mountains.

Skiers often find that cross-country skiing is one of the best ways to fully take in their surroundings. With cross-country skiing, you can go at your own pace and take advantage of the silence that comes with being alone in the snow! 

Get ready to see a different side of your favourite ski resort—one that's less about getting down the mountain as fast as possible, and more about enjoying the scenery while you're getting there.
