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

The skiing area is definitely very good. Perfect if you go their with children. Walking from the hotels to the middle station of the skiing area is relaxing experience when you enjoy the quietness.

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.
