From the Orselina funicular stop, a cable car rises every 30 minutes to 1332m Cardada, where a chair lift soars to Cimetta at 1672m. From either stop there are tremendous lake and mountain views. Cardada attracts hikers and mountain bikers, while Cimetta (thanks to its height) draws paragliders and, in winter, skiers. A one-day ski pass costs Sfr38/22 for adults/children.
