All rooms have wooden floors, and we are happy to provide hypoallergenic bedding. Please let us know when making reservations. P.S.: thanks to the high alpine location, there is less pollution in general (mite-free at an elevation over 2,000 m).

Not all places are barrier-free, but our hotel has an elevator and handicap-accessible WC. Arrival in winter is only possible for skiers.

Since December 2018, the Albergo is our 2nd boutique chalet in the ski area. Unlike the Wedelhütte, it is designed in a modern style and stands out with exceptional Italian cuisine high up on the summit.

Of course you can, and it’s easy too: you can go skiing, and we will take care of the relocation for you.
