One of the Many Things To Do at Glacier 3000

So once you have taken in the views of the mountain peaks at from the Peak Walk by Tissot and maybe gone for a lovely meal at the Restaurant Botta, you can take the Alpine Chair lift a short distance to the glacier.

The Snow Cat then takes you on a ride like no other. First of all you climb up the ladders to the seating area and get ready for an adventurous journey across the crisp blanket of snow.

The Snow Bus at Glacier 3000 drives like a caterpillar and from the comfort of your own seat at such a high elevation you get a really different perspective of this amazing ice sheet.

In Summer (below) it can be quite sunny and warm but you do need to wear good shoes as you will be walking a short distance across the snow to get to the Snow Bus.

It is advisable to wear a jacket and gloves in colder months as it can get windy and cold here (well after all it is at 3,000 metres altitude) and if it’s sunny do pack sunglasses too – all that white snow can be quite dazzling.
