The sbb website will show you the quickest route. As mentionned in a previous post, you will have to leave the train in Unterterzen, the bottom station of the gondolas.

There are no hidden costs. Only a day pass for all transportation in the skiing area, including the gondolas from Unterterzen (adults CHF 54 during the week and CHF 59 on weekends) and the rental fees for your equipment if you need it. And of course food and drinks (prices are usually quite stiff in the skiing areas).

There might be a combination ticket for train and ski day pass which saves you some money. Sometimes it even includes a discount coupon for ski rental. Ask at the train station in Thalwil for a snow'n rail ticket to Flumserberg.

By car it takes about 1.00 hours from Thalwil to Flumserberg.

By train Thalwil is a good point because some of the faster trains stopps there. But you have to change trains once in Ziegelbrücke and leave at Unterterzen. There you will take the gondola which is includet in the skipass of Flumserberge.

As oller wrote, ask for a Snow'n Rail Ticket at the train station. sbb.ch/en/…snownrail-roll-on-winter.html

Enjoy your trip

PS: In Thalwil it has a special skirental-shop. A lot of friends go there. I can't tell you something about the prices in Flumserberge nor in Thalwil. http://www.ski-rental.ch/
