I understand your confusion, but if you take a close look you'll see it says "from CHF 25.00". That's not the regular full fare you'd pay, but the half-fare price that's displayed by default. This fare applies to many Swiss residents who have a rail pass allowing them to buy 50% discounted tickets, and to tourists holding a Swiss Half Fare Card: www.myswissalps.com/sw isshalffarecard.
As explained you can best click the 'Fare/Buy' button first. You'll get to see an overview allowing you to select the fare that applies to your particular situation. Under 'Reduction', you will have to select 'No reduction'. At that point the regular full fare of CHF 50.00 will be displayed.
If you make a few regular trips, it quickly pays off to use a rail pass rather than buying full fare tickets. It all depends on the plans you have, as explained at www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass.
