Yooner time!

Discover the Yooner, the new snow sensation in town. A Yooner is a lightweight and fun combination between sledding and skiing that really gets your heart pumping. You carve down the mountain just like you would on traditional skis, but you do so sitting down on a comfortable seat 20 cm from the ground with your feet in front of you. Feeling adventurous? Rent a Yooner with us or book a lesson package with one of our top-notch instructors by visiting Guest Services. Thrills and a good time are guaranteed!
