Interesting thought about the coffee machine. Both my daughter's came down with it and they both drank hot chocolates from the machine. I didn't drink hot drinks there. I didn't think it was food poisoning necessarily as my daughter is very fussy and hadn't eaten anything I would consider risky and I felt it more likely an airborne virus. Whatever the cause there is definitely a problem there. When we travelled there were a lot of people ill and they all seemed to have been from different groups, having travelled on different planes, the common denominator being the hotel. I hope they sort the problem soon as it seems so many people have had their hard earned holidays ruined.

How far is it from the slopes?
About a 10 minute walk to the gondola, or the Lion operates a free shuttle bus on a timetable. Hope this helps.
