The number of days you buy a lift pass for are for use on consecutive days.

If you don’t think you will ski every day then it is advisable to buy a single day pass then once you have the physical card you can recharge it online in the mornings that you want to ski using the long number on the back.


  1. Consider ordering your pass in advance to avoid having to queue up at the ticket office on your first morning. They normally open at around 8.30am but during peak weeks the queues will be huge and that is one stress you can remove from your holiday!

  2. Consider adding the Carré Neige insurance to your lift pass. I am sure that you already have insurance for your ski holiday (if you don't you certainly should!) but this additional peace of mind is well worth the €3.10 per day. With this insurance you will be rescued from anywhere on the mountain, free of charge without having to go through the hassle of contacting your insurance company or paying an excess. In addition, they will take you by ambulance to the nearest medical centre and your first appointment cost will also be convered.
