Prices vary a bit depending on your country of residence, but from what I can tell based on your itinerary I would say that the 2-for-1 offer
of Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland
would be your best deal. If you travel from Geneva to Scharnachtal via Montreux and Gstaad (Golden Pass route), the pass will give you a discount for a large portion of the trip. The trip to Lucerne is discounted as well.
The regional pass would provide the opportunity to use a free travel day for gondola rides so that you don't have to limit yourself to one ride. I would certainly go up the Niesen
, since it's so close to Scharnachtal and offers a 360 degree view around the region. It's a funicular though, not a gondola. Rather spectacular gondolas are from Stechelberg up to the Schilthorn and Allmenalp near Kandersteg.
Please check the pass page for details such as which gondolas/trains are free or discounted.
