“Incredibly beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

An amazing experience - the views, the snow shoeing and the ride up in the telecabine. We will be back for the summer park.

“Fabulous view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Go on a clear day and get an unbeatable view of the surrounding mountains. The drive to the base of the mountain is not too shabby either....

“Nice access to trails - plenty of groomed and ungroomed available”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

For Spring skiing, the conditions were very good! The top of the glacier is reached via 2 cable car lifts. They run every 20 minutes so connections are easily made. At the top are all groomed easy runs serviced by surface lifts (there is one chair that is on a very short run only at the top - I think it is there mostly to service the coaster ride in the summer months). The run off the top of the glacier is a long black rated Olden ski run that is a fabulous ride. It has various options to it along the way and this is the run we did the most. Our favorite on mountain bar, Zeller's Ski Bar, is located at the bottom of the run - perfect for mid-day breaks (great house made food as well). There was no fresh snow while we were there, but the surface was not icy and was basically packed granular that they groomed out each day. There was also plenty of ungroomed options for the more adventurous (like the skiers with parachutes we saw taking off from the top each day!) There was also a great red run that starts where the cable car from Col du Pilon comes in (if you don't want to go to the top of the glacier). You can also get a breathtaking panoramic view of Jungfrau, Matterhorn & Mont Blanc from a viewing platform (accessible by elevator) at the top of the glacier.
