Elm has a feature known as the “Martinsloch”, a 15m round hole in the Tschingelhorn at 2600m through which the sun shines onto the village church steeple for only a few days a year, in March and September. Elm is located in Glarus at the head of the Sernf valley, seperated from Braunwald to the West by the Chärpf (2794m) and from Graubünden in the south by the Panix pass. Elm is not a bad little ski and snowboard destination, with a reasonable range of runs for all abilities and generally good snow on the upper slopes. Sadly it is not on the Swiss Railways Snow’n’Rail circuit.
