Hi kmbouw, and welcome to the forum! The timetable helps you to find out about connections from and to Grächen. You can get there by bus via St. Niklaus, which is down in the valley. There are no cable cars to Grächen, but there's one starting in Grächen and getting you even higher up in the mountains, to Hannigalp. Grächen LGH is the valley station of this cable car. The centre of the town is referred to as 'Grächen Post' in the timetable. Most lifts run continuously during opening hours (such as the one to Hannigalp) or three to four times an hour. So you can just get to the valley station and hop on whenever you want. You'll first have to buy a ticket at the ticket corner. If you show your Swiss Card (see below), you'll get the right amount of discount.
It seems that you're looking for the Swiss Card
for your stay in Switzerland, which sounds like a good choice to me. It provides a free trip from Zurich Airport to Grächen and back, and a 50% discount on your trips in between. Specifics and purchase options can be reviewed at the Swiss Card page.
Most Eurail Passes
, such as the France-Italy Pass, offer a few days of free traveling. On these days, you can make as much trips as you like, as the pass will be valid all day long.
Have a great stay!
