Authorized membership card

The membership card acts as a debit card associated with the membership. Everyone who is part of the membership gets their own card and you can assign all the children the opportunity to shop at Skigaarden on their own. This means that you can also create payment agreements with us, where we agree on a limit for your consumption per month. This is normally linked to a credit card. The membership card also acts as an admission card to the Heimatt areas.

If membership is terminated, membership cards must be returned to the hostess at Heimatt.
