The worst place to ski, no parking lot and horrible attendance. All people who work there seems don't want to have customers! We tried twice to rent equipments to our son.

It is easy and not expensive to get to the chairlift, a very slow one, but a nice ride up. We walked down after approaching the glacier. It is a lovely walk with view of the town and cruise ship.

We walked from town to the glacier. Took 3 hours from town to the glacier. Pleasant walk with good views over the city through the valley. Glacier is small but it is what it is.

There are different answers to this question... If you walk up from the center of town, it takes quite a while. It's maybe an hour and a half up to the chairlift (as it's all uphill). Or you could skip this part by taking a... More
