First of all, make sure to have some good shoes on you. Sandals are not the best choice even on a summer day, the hill is soaked with peaty water. Skidding wasn't that much of a problem, but suddenly sinking into what seemed like a solid ground did surprise every one of us at least once.
The hike started along a mountain bike trail, which was shockingly steep and bumpy - we laughed that if we were to bike down that one, we'd get off of the bikes and walk instead. As we reached a reasonable road on top and approached the end of the ski lift, we discovered that there is another hill on top of the one we just climbed! So we went on and didn't give up until we reached the permafrost. We never made it to the summit (it was getting into some serious rock climbing and one of us was... ehm... wearing sandals... with socks in!), but we saw some breathtaking views and drank water from the stream that tasted just like pure molten snow.
If you're not trained, be ready that your legs will be sore from the descent.
