Memorable is the word that first comes to mind when I think about Glacier 3000. When you reach the top the views are absolutely breathtaking. There were more skiers than pedestrians on the day we’ve visited which was great - we got to see real examples of risk taking on the free ride slopes and I can only admire their courage. I like that they are not trying to make you spend a lot of money. What is included in the ticket price is more than enough to enjoy a day on top of the mountain, breathe some fresh air and be in awe of how beautiful our world is. Everything works smoothly and there are signs that point to all the attractions so it’s easily accessible. The glacier walk is very long and enjoyable. Our meters showed 8km when we returned to the cable car!! Definitely a must!

Wanting a day off from skiing Gstaad we chose to drive up to the Col du Pillon. We were disappointed as we expecting to be able to ski on the Glacier but apart from the access cable car the lifts were closed due to high wind. None the less we went up to the top and did the sky walk ... What a wonderful experience...the view is magnificent. Well worth the visit ....skiing on not!

We took an early morning cable car up in mid July and were the only people on it. The journey to the top is broken by one station midway but overall only takes around 10 mins. At the top there is a restaurant, viewpoint, dog sled rides and obviously the glacier itself as well as the worlds highest alpine coaster ride. We had a 45 minute walk around in the snow with my son making snowmen then went on the main attraction. It really was great fun the alpine coaster as you can control your own speed. It is a lot better than the bob sleigh which are in metal half pipes. This is a genuine rollercoaster. I was assured that it is possible to go full speed the whole way but its hard not to slow down slightly in the corners with a 3000 foot drop nearby! I took my 3 yr old son on it 3 times and we would have happily gone down more but we were pushed for time. The views are good as you would expect. Overall though without the alpine coaster it wouldn't have been worth going up in summer.

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.

Nothing great, Mt. Titlis experience was much better and enjoyable. Glacier3000 is a little over rated and over marketed, especially during our travel dates of June 2013

This is my first time experience in Europe/Snow and glacier. It is expensive but worth for money. If you are starting from Montreux, you can take Panoramic express, enjoy the breathtaking view of lake and mountains, get down at Gstaad, take the Postbus and reach Glacier 3000. We brought regional pass for CHF100. It provided us two day unlimited travel and 3 day half rate travel within lake Geneva region. Panoramic express is free for regional pass, Postbus will charge you CHF 12 (for regional pass) from Gstaad to Glacier. You do not have to wait till bus comes. There is a bus linked to panoramic express. Glacier 3000 entrance fee is CHF 62. Then you can get into cable car and reach the glacier top. W were not skiing but enjoyed the walk through glacier.
On your way back, do not come early. There are no post buses to Gstaad between 12.30-2.15. Bus will come around 2.16 to take you to 2.55 train.

If you have a few $100 to throw away this may be for you. After getting numbed by the first sticker shock the pathetic "roller coaster" may seem like a bargain . You wouldn't know you are on a glacier from the thinning sheet of snow that barely covers the rocks. .The sights are good but not above average, for the region. After our disappointing visit it became clear why this site is not mentioned in serious tour books and why the only other visitors were deep pocketed or veiled middle-easterners.

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.

We went to Glacier 3000 during summer unfortunately, but in spite of that was overwhelmed with our first experience of snow...
The almost vertical cable car journey and sledge ride was very memorable. So was the walk to the view point...

We visited Glacier 3000 in early November. Is advisable to check the schedule and opening times for the cable cars and facilities before going, for eg between 24.09 - 02.11.2018 they were closed for maintenance.
To reach the Glacier 3000, you can take the train and bus or better drive up to Col du Pillon. It is 1h away from Lausanne by car.
There is a large parking area free of charge. The tickets to go up is 79 CHF to Scex Rouge (the top) in which you have included all sorts of activities: fun park, chairlift,peak walk. There are also discounts for HA cardholders, AG, Swiss pass and card.
I would say is important to go on a sunny day to be sure you can enjoy a 360° view. Also, depending on when are you going I would recommend a ski suit because the wind can be strong and real feel temperature can be much different vs the forecast.
Amazing views from the top over the most important peaks in Switzerland.
