Maintenance Work 

Ensuring the seamless operations and safety for our guests are our priority. Following an initial operational phase, the Matterhorn Glacier Ride II cable car will undergo extensive maintenance work and receive supplementary installations. The Matterhorn Alpine Crossing experience between Zermatt and Cervinia is expected to resume by the end of March 2024. Should the Matterhorn Glacier Ride II between the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise and Testa Grigia be restarted before the 31st of March 2024, we will provide updates in advance. The connection between Zermatt and Cervinia remains assured throughout the winter season via the ski slopes. The cable car ride from Zermatt to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise remains unaffected by these maintenance works.
