Excellent hike. Trails were sporadic on marking. Switched trails several times not knowing where they were headed. Got to the glacier. Not much left. The view from atop of the old chair lift was spectacular though

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.

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
