The region also has great possibilities for night skiing (Mägisalp-Reuti), which can be combined with an evening of fondue or raclette (a traditional Swiss dish with melted cheese grilled under direct heat) in the Mägisalp mountain restaurant.
- The sun’s rays are more intense in the mountains. Don’t forget to bring sunscreen with a high protection factor, a hat and sunglasses with UV protection.
- We recommend bringing warm clothing and rain gear even in summer and in good weather in winter. We recommend layering your clothing.
