Nobody told us about the flies so I thought I had better tell you. We went up today on the cable car, great views, a sunny day. Arrived at the top and had to walk to the summit through this biblical plague of little flies,...More

Today we climbed this beautiful mountain and it was well worth it! The views were breathtaking and the air so fresh. It was very busy but not so busy that you felt you were always near people. Take a picnic with you to eat at...More

Amazing views from the top, but we enjoyed our hike up more. Very scenic, wildflowers everywhere - we also spotted some marmots! Still some snow patches around. There was a herd of cows that was very photogenic, and we got to appreciate the scale of...More

The cable car is a great ride, but you can walk up and down by different routes, all well signposted. The 800 + wooden steps to the summit from the cable car are worth it for the view.
