Winter Walking - There are 63km of designated paths for walking and with varying levels of difficulty there is a way for everyone – even non-skiers - to get out on to the mountain. There are five different snowshoe routes totalling 15km through the forests, around the lakes and marked out over the golf course. A great way to take in the winter alpine atmosphere

Cross Country Skiing - The cross-country skiing takes place on the Plaine Morte glacier where the 360 degree views can be absorbed

Tobogganing - Running from an altitude of 2400m down to 1500m it really is a sledging track to get the heart racing. With being open in the evening it is a great way to build up your appetite for dinner

Snow Tubing - The track for tubing is on the golf course in resort

Ice Skating - There is an outdoor Ice Rink for evening skating and if you want to try your hand at something new there is also curling too

Swimming - Within the resort there are eight public indoor pools, a heated salt water pool and also nine wellness centres. All are based in hotels

Shopping - Packed high to the rafters with high quality boutiques, there isn’t a Swiss watch brand or designer fashion brand that you could think of that isn’t already there

Restaurants - With lots of local dairy products, quality food shops and wine cellars you can ‘taster’ your way around the village on a relaxing afternoon

MONEY MATTERS
Travellers cheques are widely accepted for exchange or purchase in major cities, but in more rural areas, visit a bank to exchange them for Euros. Major credit cards are widely accepted here and ATM access is widespread. Exchange currency only at authorized outlets such as banks and hotels, and exchange only what you think you will spend in the country. Coins cannot be reconverted on departure. Save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS
In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server CHF 50 for a CHF 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.
