For those who have built up an appetite during the day, there will be a hog roast dinner at the Hotel Vert in the evening, along with live music performances and sets from local DJs.
The hotel will be providing a shuttle service to take people to the festivities on a half hourly basis.

Skiers and snowboarders can choose from 51 beginner runs, 190 intermediate runs and 21 advanced runs.
