Depending on the cost, it could be worth the risk.+ I've been there twice so far. Awesome stuff. - There is a small chairlift about halfway up, the rest you have to hike. But the scenery is stunning, and the BRRRT action is very close.
+ It really is a unique experience, I don't think there is another airshow in the world were live ammo gets spouted infront of a crowd like this, and were you can see the flying gun and the target at the same time. Also the way the F18's dive down after going over the mountain tops is a sight to behold. - As good as they are, these youtube videos just can't transport the thrill.
+ Important tip: You have to catch a place at the front of the visitor space otherwise as soon as the show starts all the people with cameras (read: most of the crowd) naturally stand up, forcing everybody else to stand too for the whole day when the crowd is packed. - But if you're at the front, you can comfortably sit and enjoy. LOL
- The high alpine weather has rapid changes, so it can happen that the show sometimes gets cancelled by the last minute. And I don't mean postponed, I do mean cancelled.
