Snow coach
The snow coach trail is for the most part groomed on top of the closed summer road. The starting point for the snow coaches are at Tyin parking.

All luggage (except a minimum amount of personal items) are placed on the roof of the snow coach exposed to snow, rain, wind and cold. We appreciate that skis and poles are put in a skibag or at least tied together with straps, tape or similar.
