Matterhorn Alpine Crossing

a once-in-a-generation project

A long-cherished vision becomes reality: a connection between Zermatt and the Italian winter sports resort of Cervinia, unbroken and operational throughout the year, thanks to the Matterhorn Alpine Crossing. From the autumn of 2022, the “Matterhorn glacier ride II” will be the final piece of the puzzle, as the highest continuous Alpine crossing by cable car is completed. The modern cableway will link the Klein Matterhorn mountain station with the station on Testa Grigia in Italy. Following the opening of the “Matterhorn glacier ride I” in the autumn of 2018, the completion of the “Matterhorn glacier ride II” will see the two resorts joined by a continuous link, the realization of a dream born over 80 years ago.
