There is no better warm-up training for a dance night than Alpine skiing. Before the splendid party will start at 6:00 pm, you have heaps of time to hit the immaculate ski slopes in the afternoon. Inhale the Alpine mood and get ready for fabulous dance music and fantastic moves. But save your dance legs’ energy for the evening hours – you will need it for sure.

2. No Sign of Annoying Neighbors at 2282 Meters

A common situation: your music system at maximum volume, spirits are high and the party has reached its absolute highlight. Then the doorbell rings! If you are lucky it’s just the angry neighbor complaining about loud music. In the worst case, he has already called the police. Don’t worry about all that and join the marvelous EMF Pre-New Year Party – no sign of annoying neighbors at 2282 m above sea level: just turn up that volume!

3. You Won’t Need a Taxi for your Return Ride
