195 euro for five months from may until september of unlimited slope acces:

They call it a Summer Card yet they don't show it on the English info pages :lol:

I probabily will go more often than in wintertime because the slopes are deserted and not full of crap like big air bags, man made moguls or people that stop in the middle of the slope (600 meter long) in a group to catch a breath :roll:

Well, you gotta be a Moto GP pilot to have your face 10 cm close to the track... for me it is only my knees to feel the angle.... but some can actually put down the elbow / palm, too.

But I can also lay it down like this.... super safe, no stress, no potential injury....
