Winter Experiences

Winter is snow. The magical experience can be about the sports such as skiing, snowboarding, cross country, snowshoeing, and snowplay, but it can just about being in the snow.

Spend more time with friends and family, and more time in the snow. Come together with like-minded people who love the mountains and the snow. Share experiences, stories, make friends over a drink at the bar, nibbles by the fire or over a meal prepared fresh each day by the chef.

FAMILY

Diana is our home, so visitors feel more than guests - they are like friends and family. So we like to make them feel as much, take the time to look after yours. Our Family Rooms were designed with families in mind, with the space and facilities you need for a great family holiday.

In winter, children return hungry, so we offer them their own early dinner time - a delicious set two course meals tailored to their tastes. When the parents dine, the children are entertained by a member of our team with some evening activities.

High chairs, cots and linen are available and there is a special rate for all children under 6 years.
Please ask for details.

We are happy to discuss you and your family's needs and can construct a package that gives you the best value for the experience we can offer you
