Phones

+

Mobile coverage can be a bit patchy in the mountains, no matter which network you’re on, but most major Telcos have coverage in the Alpine area.

For international staff, International SIM cards are available online or at the airport, or “pay as you go plans” and SIMs with specific Telcos are also available (and generally a bit cheaper than the pre-paid international ones).

Either way, these things are better sorted in the larger cities prior to your arrival on the mountain.
