Information for Teams

 

Team Accommodation

The Local Organising Committee (LOC) has secured a number of rooms at hotels which range from three to four stars. All are within 5-10 minutes of the competition venue. As the month of February is considered high season in the ski resort and is a popular sport destination, teams are encouraged to book early to avoid disappointment.

The LOC manages all hotel bookings directly, please contact Alexia Tauler, the person responsible at wch2013@playandtrain.org.

The Accommodation Fee is as follows: 85 Euros per day (half board and lift ticket included), 95 euros per day for a single room (half board and ticket included) or 40 Euros without lodging but including a lift ticket.

The Accommodation Fee must be paid by 3 January 2012. Cancellations before 10 January 2013 will get a 50 per cent refund. After this date no refund will be given.
