Lift pass, lessons and material

In step 2 of the booking process it is indicated for which days the lift pass is valid. If you want to use the ski lift on a different day than indicated in step 2 of the booking process, please contact our contact centre by telephone. It is not possible to change the days of the lift pass once you have arrived at the destination. If you wish to extend the lift pass, it can often be booked as an extra. The price for extending the lift pass can be found in step 2 of the booking. If you choose “no lift pass”, the discount can also be found in step 2 of the booking process.

Discounts:

The lift pass for children up to age 4 and senior citizens from 75 years is free. If you are entitled to the free lift pass, you can choose the option 'no lift pass' when booking. You can pick up this lift pass at the resort on presentation of your ID.

The above fees and discounts are valid only when booking with Sunweb. Other rates are used at the resort.

Important note: You will need to bring a (passport-sized) photograph with you when you collect your lift pass.

You can select ski and snowboard directly upon booking. With short-stay holidays it is not possible to book ski lessons. You can arrange ski lessons at the resort.

Ski and snow board lessons start on Sunday.

When booking ski lessons, you will be asked to specify your level of experience:

Beginners:

Only choose beginners lessons if you have never skied before.

Intermediate:

 If you are able to break and make turns, choose this level.

Advanced:

 If you are able to ski but you would like to improve your technique, please choose this level.

If there are not enough applicants for the group ski lessons, then the ski school may choose to change the days and times of the lessons. A group lesson can therefore be changed by them to a private lesson at no extra costs.

Gold

These skis and snowboards are made of high quality material, and are perfect for experienced skiers. This comfortable material is suitable on all track types and snow conditions.
