New this summer, the resort is introducing the Cave Peak Stairway; a unique, one-of-a-kind installation raising some 400 feet above the ground, offering mesmerizing views of the 600-acre property and beyond.

The Cave Peak Stairway has 120 steps and is accessible from the resort’s existing Cave Peak Via Ferrata Trail. Guests will now be invited to take to the stairs after completing the Via Ferrata. The Cave Peak Via Ferrata offers an unmatched vertical route of ascent, a spectacular position and a summit visible from the resort. Now with the addition of the stairway, it is destined to be an iconic and a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
