In a little less than two hours, public transport gets you to Elm, deep in the mountains of the canton Glarus. Six lifts and more than 40 kilometres of slopes await you there, as well as a kids zone, a sledge run and a snowpark. Elm is also known as a good spot for freeriding. And it’s the home of the probably most famous Swiss ski star of all times, Vreni Schneider. She collected 3 Olympic gold medals in the 80s and 90s. Nowadays she runs a skiing school in Elm, so watch out, she might swing down the hill just in front of you.
