On July 1, 2023, the Matterhorn Glacier Ride II was put into operation. The new 3S cableway connects the Klein Matterhorn mountain station with the Testa Grigia valley station in Italy, thus enabling the highest border crossing in the Alps – the Matterhorn Alpine Crossing.
Matterhorn Glacier Ride II – Alpine Crossing
The realization of the world’s highest 3S cableway to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise was only the first step towards an even greater vision: a continuous cableway connection between Zermatt and Italy.
The identical 3S cableway between Testa Grigia and the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise will make this Alpine crossing possible. From July 1, 2023, visitors will finally be able to tackle the highest Alpine crossing with a view of the Matterhorn from Zermatt to Cervinia or vice versa without getting their feet wet.
The new 3S cable car Matterhorn Glacier Ride II runs from the Klein Matterhorn mountain station at 3,883 meters above sea level to the Testa Grigia valley station at 3,458 meters above sea level. For the first time, visitors can travel from Italy to Switzerland and vice versa not only on skis and snowboards, but also on foot. This new installation closes the last gap between Zermatt and Breuil-Cervinia and makes the long-standing vision of the highest cable car crossing in the Alps a reality.
From 2024, luggage transport will be offered, making the journey across the Alps even easier and more carefree. Various activities await visitors on the mountain peaks, such as the SnowXperience Plateau Rosa adventure world around the Testa Grigia valley station or the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise at the Klein Matterhorn mountain station.
