Meals:  Lunch will be catered (~ 15€ per person per day). Please note that you need to sign up for lunch during registration.

The social dinner will take place on Monday evening: a traditional Savoyan dinner will be organized in an alpine chalet (Le Banc de l'ours) at 1200m in the Vercors Mountains (~ 30€). Please sign up for dinner during registration.
The access to the chalet from the bus stop will be about 5-10 min on foot on a well prepared snowy trail (more or less flat). Please bring good shows with you. (Please inform us if you are unable to walk this distance on a snowy trail, we can foresee an alternative)
For the return, you can alternatively take a longer hike on a trail (30 min on foot/snowshoe/ski; about 1,8 km downhill), the chalet will provide torches for the descent in that case (2 € p.P), and the bus will pick you up at lower altitude. We will inform you about the details in due time.

Please note that all meals (lunch and social dinner) should be paid during registration on Monday, please make sure to have the exact amount with you (cash only).

Further details will be communicated in due time.
