ACTIVITIES FOR NON-SKIERS
Although the 4 Vallees is notorious for its excellent and dynamic skiing, we know not everyone is in search of fresh tracks and white-knuckle freeriding every day! For those who would prefer non alpine skiing or boarding activities, you may like to consider some of the following snowy pastimes: snow-shoeing (raquettes), cross-country skiing, tobogganing, ice-climbing, or simply walking along the ancient bisses?
It's not only the skiers who can enjoy the traditional alpine cuisine on offer in the many delicious and charming mountain restaurants. Due to the Hidden Dragon Chalet's convenient location near the base of the bubble lift, a mere 2 minute drive or 5 minute walk, it is easily possible for Hidden Dragon guests to obtain a pedestrian ski pass and meet their fellow party members on the piste. Hearty Swiss fare like fondue and raclette accompanied by a local Valaisan wine is all part of the glorious alpine experience at 2000+ metres altitude.
CHAMPAGNE LUNCH UNDER THE MATTERHORN OR HUSKY-SLEDDING
Hidden Dragon also caters to those who simply wish to enjoy the mountains for their beauty, serenity and amenities. We are happy to organise helicopter leisure trips for those who wish to see the alps by sky or for those who might prefer to sip champagne under the Matterhorn with a picnic lunch rather than actually ski the dramatic landscape! Perhaps an afternoon husky-sledding wrapped up in a blanket-adorned sleigh in Les Diablerets sounds more appealing than carving up the off-piste?
We would be delighted to organise a memorable and fun-filled trip for you so please don't hesitate to ask.
RELAXING AT THE LUXURY SKI CHALET
And if all that sounds like too much hard work, Hidden Dragon's multiple terraces, front and rear gardens, equipped with outdoor sofas and sun loungers create a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere to sunbathe, read, and relax with breathtaking scenery and mountain views. The spa facilities are always at hand and offer the non-skier a more leisurely and indulgent alternative to hitting the slopes.
The Hidden Dragon team are here to look after you and ensure that your holiday is exactly what you envisaged it would be and hopefully much, much more.
