All rooms are equipped with satellite TV, access to the Internet and of course remarkable views.

Transport and Access - This is the really exciting part! On the arrival day you will be met in the resort by a converted piste basher to collect you and your luggage, the journey lasts about 15 minutes depending on conditions.
For all other days the refuge offers a service costing 15euros, which buys a return trip by skidoo to the main ski lift area meeting you at the end of the day.
