The vision of an alpine crossing takes shape
THE COUNTDOWN IS RUNNING
The cableway connection between the Matterhorn glacier paradise (Klein Matterhorn) and Testa Grigia sees the realization of a once-in-a-generation dream: to be able to travel the entire way from the Matterhorn village of Zermatt (Switzerland) to Breuil-Cervinia (Italy) without having to get your boots wet! It’s a visionary cableway project that will further enhance the status of Zermatt-Matterhorn as a premium high-alpine destination. The panoramic journey, lasting around one hour from Switzerland to Italy or vice versa, will cover an altitude difference of over 4'000 metres – the greatest by any cableway in Europe.
VISION "ALPINE X"
The opening of the world’s highest 3S cableway to the Matterhorn glacier paradise in the autumn of 2018 was just the first stage in the realization of a much more far-reaching vision: the creation of a continuous cableway connection between Zermatt and Italy – the so-called “Alpine X” (Alpine Crossing). This crossing will be made possible by the addition of another structurally similar 3S cableway (tri-cable gondola lift) between Testa Grigia and the Matterhorn glacier paradise. The first visitors should be able to make the highest crossing of the Alps in summer 2022 – all under the watchful eye of the Matterhorn!
MATTERHORN GLACIER PARADISE
The focal point on the future international journey through the Alpine world around the Matterhorn is already an impressive and unique mountain of adventures. Enter the high-alpine world of rock and ice.Details
