2018/2019 Winter Preview

Something is happening in the highest mountain lift station in Europe.

Highest Mountain Lift in Europe: the New 3S Bahn

The Zermatt Bergbahnen AG is investing in the future and increasing the transportation capacity of the mountain lifts, which run between Trockener Steg (2,939 m) and Matterhorn glacier paradise (3,883 m). The new 3S lift is named that because it has one towing cable and two load-bearing cables (3S) which pull 25 gondolas to the top with 28 seats in each. The transportation capacity is 2,000 passengers per hour. The opening of the lift is planned for the 2018-2019 winter season. If you are interested in taking a ride in one of these cabins now – wearing virtual reality goggles – visit the InfoCube at Trockener Steg.
