Alpine Crossing: from vision to reality

The opening of the world’s highest 3S cableway to the Matterhorn glacier paradise in autumn 2018 was just the first step 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 Crossing”. The first visitors should be able to make the highest crossing of the Alps in spring 2021 – and the Matterhorn will not be lost of sight. We are curious!
