Personal care and care
The Mentelity Games organization maintains the rule that each participant is responsible for his or her own personal care and any care needed. Should you need your own caregivers on the trip, please inquire about travel and cost options and email your question to thijs@mentelity.org.

Location and Route.
The Mentelity Games are organized in Saas Grund, Switzerland. Each participant will be told before departure which accommodation he or she is assigned to and the exact address. Should you come with your own transportation, we advise you to take the car train Lötschbergbahn to cross the mountains between Kandersteg and Goppenstein.

You can also choose to travel to Saas Grund by train. There is also a good (direct) train connection from Utrecht to Basel; from Basel take the train via Bern to Visp. From Visp, the Postbus takes 42 minutes to Saas Grund. Total travel time then comes down to about 9:30 hours.

Do you opt for a Mentelity Busticket? Then keep in mind that the bus leaves late Sunday evening, March 26, in the Bilthoven area and drops everyone off there Saturday, April 1. The bus is wheelchair accessible.

Equipment and fitting days
Participants requiring adapted ski equipment will be provided by the Mentelity Games organization. For seated skiers a number of fitting days will be organized for choosing the right equipment. This will be done at the VGW in Huizen. It is important that you attend one of these days. Other equipment can be rented in Switzerland.

Packing List
What do you need to take with you on winter vacation? To be well prepared for your trip, we have created a packing list for you. This way you can be sure you have everything you need in your bag.

The organization always monitors the developments surrounding the corona virus and follows the then current corona measures of Switzerland and the Netherlands. Should it be considered unsafe to continue the trip, the organization may cancel the trip.
