How to reach Glacier 3000

Glacier 3000 can be reached by cable car from the valley station of Col-du-Pillon. Col-du-Pillon is only accessible by bus or car from Gstaad or Les Diablerets.

Getting to the valley station Col-du-Pillon

The Col-du-Pillon cable car station is only accessible by car or bus from Gstaad (in about 35 minutes) or from Les Diablerets (in about 20 minutes). In winter, there’s a special ski bus for direct connections between Les Diablerets and Col-du-Pillon on a regular basis.

The closest major towns are Gstaad and Montreux. Montreux is at about 1 hour from via Les Diablerets. Interlaken is 2h50 away from Col-du-Pillon via Gstaad on the Golden Pass route.

Parking spots at the Col-du-Pillon cable car station are available for those who arrive by car.

Getting to Glacier 3000/Scex Rouge

The most obvious route is the cable car from Col-du-Pillon to Scex Rouge, with a change at the mid-station Cabane.

There is an alternative cable car route from the valley station Reusch, via mid-stations Oldenegg and Cabane. It has limited opening dates: it’s operational only from mid-February to mid-March, and from mid-July to mid-August.

Dates of operation
