I took a trip to Stoos yesterday and thought I'd post some pics about the trip.
I live in Zurich and the trip was just under 2 hours from Zurich main station to Stoos (train to Schwyz and bus to the Stoos funicular was the most direct option I found). Very easy. I found a Supersaver ticket for 15chf one-way. My friend who is notoriously late missed the train and had to buy a new ticket for one 30 minutes later. I did not wait for him and miss the train. I texted I would meet him in Stoos!
Stoos is a car-free village and is more like a small ski resort with permanent residents (about 100). We all agreed the village was beautiful and would like to return - had a great lunch at Sternegg Restaurant. If you aren't skiing there isn't much to do here except eat, so a day trip is perfect for most people. You will see the entire town in a 10 minute walk. :)
The main access point is the newly crowned world's steepest funicular. It felt more like an elevator honestly!
Note that due to the rotating barrels of the funicular you get no real view looking up the mountain (so look behind you and joy the view on the way up). I was in the first "barrel" going up and the 3rd barrel going down. Views were great no matter what. There are two tunnels which seemed like they are at the steepest points which was a shame but the views between the two tunnels are great.
