Tunnels, hills, small jumps, rapid steep curves and all kinds of obstacles can be skied on this creative route. So tighten your ski boots and off you go.

Hours CardShould the day of skiing be short, only one or two hours? Then the Hours Card is the right thing to do. Within one, two or three hours one receives a partial reimbursement upon the return of the ski pass at the ticket office. The shorter the stay on the slopes, the greater the repayment is.
Easy SkiCardOnly pay for those mountain sections that are used. This is the motto of the new Easy SkiCard. This means: you can download points online and off you go. The more points you download, the more you can profit from the price advantage. A point deduction is made on the Easy SkiCard points account each time a ski lift is used. At the end of the ski day, winter sports athletes are then sent detailed daily usage accounting by e-mail.

New extremely steep slope in CerviniaThe new slope No. 59 leads skiers through a world of superlatives. 65% inclines at the steepest sections, a hell ride on skis directly beneath the Matterhorn. 250 vertical meters must be conquered on a length of 750 meters on this black slope located on the Italian side near Cervinia. Take a deep breath and enjoy the southern side of the Matterhorn in relaxed curves.
