In addition, the Malbi Park offers free practice facilities where children can try out the magic carpet, carousel and children’s lift. 
Experienced winter sports enthusiasts can look forward to 23 kilometres of fantastic ski slopes. The lifts can also be reached on skis from the hotel. You couldn’t dream of a more comfortable skiing holiday!
