Alpine crossing

Date of publication Winter 2019-2020

Coming Soon The 2018 inauguration of the world’s highest tri-cable gondola lift, carrying passengers from Trockener Steg to the Matterhorn glacier paradise (Klein Matterhorn), was only the beginning of a much more ambitious project: the creation of a continuous cableway connection between Zermatt and Italy known as “Alpine X” (Alpine Crossing). Once completed, passengers will be able to cross the Alps from on-high, almost without having to step foot on the ground. A similar cableway connecting Testa Grigia (3,458 m) and the Matterhorn glacier paradise (3,883) will complete the crossing, which is expected to be ready for riders by autumn 2021.
