Took the funicular up from Locarno. The cable car ride was fun and the views from the top are gorgeous. We also took the chairlift up to Cimetta and really loved having beer and pizza with a view.

Hi, no there isn't skating. It's basically a cable car lift for 70 people up to the first level with a viewing point and a children's play area then c chair lift to the summit to see amazing views.
