Winter bathing season pass : Why CHF 50 ?

In the last few years, the AUBP has noticed a strong increase in the number of winter swimmers thanks to the growing popularity of cold water swimming. The wear and tear on the infrastructure, the costs for maintenance, cleaning, electricity and hot water have increased accordingly.

The AUBP Committee has therefore decided to create two types of Winter Baths passes, a season pass which is valid from September 15, 2018 to May 26, 2019 and a Christmas Cup pass valid from September 15, 2018 to December 16, 2018. The price of the Coupe de Noel pass is CHF 30.

On the other hand, the price of the season ticket is CHF 50 with respective discounts for pension plan, disability card, students and children. This price also reflects the duration of the subscription: 8 months and a half. As a comparison, the price of the summer pass is also frs. 50 for a season that lasts 3 and a half months.
