From Zurich Gold Coast, it takes over an hour to get here. The lifts up are very slow. There are two sledding routes, the short one to the midstation lift has a few interesting descends that are not too difficult for beginners and smaller kids....More

We stayed for one night in beautiful Braunwald. As the resort is relatively low, it was late in the season and the weather was beautiful, the snow wasn't great and quite slushy. It's also good for non skiers with beautiful snow shoe trails and winterwanderwegs....More

Great views, not so great slopes. Either for families with small children or for grannies. Nice for a day or two.

Love skiing here. Plenty of off piste an beautiful scenery. It's also very quiet. On the downside lifts are slow and runs are short. However, there's never a queue so it's not a problem. Canton Glarus is very nice and well worth a visit.
