We recently took this gondola to the top of Sulper Mountain. It is beautiful at the top but try to go on a clear day. At the top they have a restaurant, gift shop and other displays of interest.

Superbly run attraction, but pricey. The renovated amenities at the top of the ride are wonderful -- 360 views, restaurant, gift shop.

Great ride to top, brilliant views especially from Bistro at top. A varying range of weather from Sun, wind and snow all in two hours. Get to it from town on free number one bus, just show hotel room key.
