Behind the scenes
snow groomer's job
After the skiers have relished carving out their paths on the snow, it’s time for the snow groomers to take centre stage. From the base of the slopes, one can only spot the distant lights of these machines gliding across the terrain, illuminating the night. But ascend a little higher, and you’re treated to a mesmerising dance orchestrated to the rhythm of the groomers’ caterpillar tracks.
For those curious about what happens behind the scenes, the operators offer a unique opportunity. As dusk descends, they invite holidaymakers to join them, journeying across the ski area in their formidable machines. From the thrill of navigating steep inclines to the wonder of understanding these engineering marvels, our ‘One-Night Groomer’ participants always leave with a trove of cherished memories, completely enchanted by this one-of-a-kind experience.
