I have been coming to the Glacier for many years, and quite frankly the experience this time was extremely disappointing.

First of all, the infrastructure on the slopes is unforgivingly outdated. I understand that there were many people, but it’s unacceptable that the ski lifts are the same as 20 years ago, with limited capacity and unnecessary queues forming up. Instead of working on the restaurant, perhaps it would be better to focus on the skiers.
On a side note, how can it be that one out of the three (not 25) lifts, the Quille, was closed? 33% less capacity on a sunny day with plenty of people is unacceptable!
The ropes thy were set up to get back are also a joke, as it is almost impossible to hang on and your gloves or jacket may get damaged… why not replicate the mini-lift that was set up at the Combe d’Audon?

Then there’s the general level of service, which is abysmal. The people working at the parking lot are incompetent and made me go against a rock with my car! Also, nobody was putting salt on the asphalt, which caused me to suffer a fall I still haven’t recovered from (lucky I didn’t press charges).

Finally, the restaurant… the “emergency” structure that was setup is totally inadequate, it’s unacceptable to have to wait 1 hour standing in line to order food. Why on Earth not doing the renovation during the summer season, when there’s hardly anyone going up?

The slopes are fine, but if you cannot fully take advantage, the whole experience becomes quite poor…

Hello, Thank you for your comment. We are sorry that your ski day did not go as planned. I'm going to go over a few points. The renovation of the equipment is part of our many projects. However, in light of recent events at Glacier 3000, some projects are moving forward such as the reconstruction of the Botta restaurant which is scheduled for this spring. The sun and the good weather are not enough to open the entire ski area. Like the Quille slope that you mentioned, we need a lot of snow to open this slope for safety reasons. If we don't open a slope, it's not that we don't want to, but rather for the safety of our clients. We thank you for your understanding.

We visited mid December when we purchased our ticket was informed that may close due to high winds but not informed that would be given no refund if did close. So bought tickets (my son's first time skiing I. Switzerland so excited). Took the lift up, as soon as go out all ski slope lifts were shut down by staff due to wind, closed nothing NADA. So we had to return down. On visiting the kiosk were told that no refund, even though we had not even got one chance to ski. If we had skiied for a few runs or so I guess I can accept there argument but we did not even use the service we paid for. The manager just quoted the rule book at us. I presume very swiss but really who cares just disgusting money grubbing as far as I am concerned hiding behind a rule book. Will never ever return.

Hello, We are sorry that your ski day at Glacier 3000 did not go as planned. Weather conditions at 3'000 meters can change quickly which force us to close the resort for security reasons. If you would like to make a complaint or speak to our customer service team, please feel free to contact us at marketing@glacier3000.ch. We will be happy to discuss the matter with you.

A huge construction site dominates the mountain and spoils any sense of tranquility. The idea that construction = Development surely has no place in the modern world. The ski slopes are poorly designed and few in number. All blue. All T-bars except about 150m one chairlift, only one restaurant. Overall impression best case everything done minimal cheap. Selling TISSOT watches to non-skiers seems to be the raison d'etre of this place

Amazing experience, 1000% worth the money! Our tour guide (Normunds) was great! Really funny and had lots of amazing facts on the journey there. Even the coach trip to glacier was really good, insane views and couldn’t recommend it anymore!

I really think Normunds made the experience even better! Really talkative and funny, couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide x

We had a good trip to Glacier 3000. The peak walk over the suspension bridge is great fun and provides for good pictures. The toboggan run is good and not that expensive. We walked for a little while over the glacier, which unfortunately no longer was very white in July. All in all we spent a few hours. It an expensive cable car ride, but certainly worth doing.

Appalling customer service and terrible marketing and communications.
Took our money and then closed the Glacier once we got up there - even though we had asked about conditions. No remit for a partial refund or a next day ticket transfer - I guess they already had over £100 of our money so do not care about the customer experience. If you are a US or UK tourist and keen skiier looking for a genuine customer at service experience, take your money elsewhere, I will be.

Dear Lauren, Weather conditions at 3,000 meters can change quickly which force us to close parts of the resort for security reasons. Tickets to the Glacier 3000 that are used will not be refunded. However, as part of the Alpes Vaudoises area, holders of a Glacier 3000 tickets can also spend the day skiing in this resort. We thank you for your understanding.

We had a fantastic day tour with our guide Normund. He had explained the places to go first and the meeting points thereafter. He had made our first trip to Switzerland a memorable one and he was funny too. Thank you.

It was my first time seeing snow and it was an amazing experience. We took two cable cars that got us to the main point of the attraction. There were hiking options available, ski rental and fun spot for kids. There was also a cafe with food options. An amazing day to enjoy with family, friends or individually. The place give a 360 view of the Alps.

I enjoyed a memorable day with my sister and my mum on top of Glacier 3000. I visited last summer, and I managed to see snow. It's really worth the visit. I particularly enjoyed crossing the bridge between the two mountain peaks.

If you are planning to visit Jungfrau and Titlis, I would suggest to replace Titlis with Glacier 3000. Jungfrau and Titlis are more or less the same (Jungfrau Ice Palace being much better than Titlis Glacier Grotto). Glacier 3000 like other mountain tops is unique in only one thing. It has an amazing Alpine Coaster Ride which is very different and a wonderful experience which you wont get on any other mountain top in Switzerland. So go for Glacier 3000 rather than Titlis if you are anyways visiting Jungfrau. You will also enjoy Ice Express chairlift and the Peak Walk.

Also towns like Les Diablerets from where you get bus to Glacier 3000 and towns like Gstaad are worth visiting. We spent an hour in Les Diablerets and boarded the bus to Glacier 3000 and after 3 hours of excursions in Glacier 3000 took a bus to Gstaad and strolled around the beautiful town for 1.5 hours by visiting churches, shops and having beer. Lovely towns to spend some time while visiting Glacier 3000.
