I stayed there in 2006. It closed in 2016.

Three questions:

1. What's the Hotel's name. (I blanked it.)
2. Name the mountain pass.
3. Name the glacier.

Very good! The Furka Pass was far more interesting and challenging motorcycle road than the Stelvio.

The Hotel was first class. The beds had only one top sheet and a down comforter that was about 24 inches thick. My window had a large sill and faced the glacier, so I would sit on it with the window open sipping on a sweet Auslese.

I've always wanted to check it out. It's on my list for my next visit to Switzerland. Too bad the hotel is closed.

Hint 1: One of the most dangerous airports in the world.
Hint 2: When you drop off the kids, it falls into a pit.
