Resort News

We like the sound of the new fun track in La Rosière dedicated to children and families. It’s more than 1km long with modules, gongs and tunnels, and themed with the famous La Rosière Saint Bernard mascot.

Klosters skiers will be pleased to hear that a new (covered and heated) chairlift will replace the 70s’ Furka T-bar a key Klosters/Davos link. Taking 2,500 skiers per hour it will half journey time up the mountain.

Top Tips

We know about applying a pack of frozen peas on a bump but did you know you should then dab the bruise with warm water and vinegar to increase blood ow near the skin’s surface and dissipate the blood? Dark chocolate contains theobromine, more effective than codeine when it comes to coping with a persistent cough. It’ll also keep you awake on the slopes – unlike codeine. Reach for the Ritter Sport! Skier’s feet? To eliminate odoriferous bacteria mix 1 part vinegar with two parts water and soak feet. Thanks to Ski Beat skibeat.co.uk 01273 855100
