First Tracks

Early Lift and Guided Ski

New for winter 2023/24 our First Tracks program invites you to be among the first to carve through the pristine powder or freshly groomed slopes.

An unmatched, early-morning adventure

Welcome to our exhilarating First Tracks ski program, where we invite you to be among the first to glide through the pristine powder or cut up freshly groomed trails. While others are still having breakfast and while the mountain is still wrapped in a quiet blanket of snow, this exclusive experience grants you the rare opportunity to witness the mountain in its untouched splendor.

Imagine the crisp mountain air as the sun rises casting a warm glow across the snow-covered peaks. Imagine the soft sounds of your skis or snowboard on untouched snow. Imagine the breathtaking views as you navigate the pristine trails. Now imagine experiencing all this before the the public.

Our First Tracks program is designed for those seeking an unforgettable start to their ski day, offering a sense of serenity and adventure that only comes with being one of the first to descend the mountain.
