Seasons play an important role in lifestyle of the Swiss people as well as in our centre, located high in the mountains where each season has a chance to present its best assets and create an unforgettable experience.

Some activities are only possible in specific seasons, for example skiing and other snow adventure activities in winter and early spring.
