The new glacier express - the longest underground tunnel course of the world - brings you in only 8 minutes in the middle inside in the ski and sport arena to Moelltaler glacier.
Yes, glacier subways are becoming more popular and there are now three of them (as far as I know) in the world: the Serfaus dorfbahn (village train), the Alpine Metro (Saas Fe, Switzerland), and now the 3.2 km Pitztaler Glacier Express.

Nothing on the subway yet but Rocamadour is beautiful.
Note: Apparently there is no true subway. Here's an email I received about the "subway" from Martyn Arnold:
I think that would be the lift system to get people to the higher levels without too much leg-work. It's just a utility, rather than a means of entertainment. I haven't used it, but I noticed that there was a pair of standard elevator doors directly above each other, on different levels.
There is also a guy who drives a little toy train up and down the main street taking people on tours, but that's hardly a funicular!
A short page about the 3.4 km Le Perce Neige "glacier metro", plus a map of the resort town.
Does the FuniVAL qualify as a subway? Well, the 1 km funicular transports passengers and is 80% underground. You decide.
