The coronavirus crisis somewhat marred the opening of Switzerland's first autonomous gondola lift last winter. This year, the gondola lift on the Rothorn will start its second season – transporting guests from all over the world from Tufternkehr via the Wyss Gufer middle station to the 3,103-metre-high Rothorn.Details
In addition to the Zermatt Bike Pass, a new Bike Pass Light is now available for the summer.

When the first of the sun’s rays touches the majestic mountain peaks, bathing the panorama in soft light, there’s no better place to witness it than on the banks of Stellisee lake, where the Matterhorn is reflected in the smooth surface of the water.

The warm weather in November makes technical snowmaking on the slopes difficult. For this reason, the start of the season for the Rothorn and Gornergrat areas has been postponed by one week to 5 December 2020. The Matterhorn glacier paradise area is open.
From Saturday 10 October 2020, skiers in the Matterhorn ski paradise will be able to access 25 kilometres of pistes.

The lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic is causing a great deal of uncertainty and reduced sales for almost every industry in Switzerland. Instead of falling into a state of shock, the Zermatt Bergbahnen AG (ZBAG) concentrates on the time “when this is all over”. Despite the difficult starting position, the Board of Directors has decided to make the major investments of around 60 million Swiss francs over the next two years as planned. The additional financing provided by the banks also contributes to this decision. As soon as the weather conditions allow and no further official decisions relating to the coronavirus prevent construction work from taking place, ZBAG will commence the task of building the new Kumme gondola lift and continue work on the Matterhorn glacier ride II 3S cableway project.Details
Gornergrat Bahn is the first Swiss rail company to provide the public with free Wi-Fi on all its trains. Simply log in to access free internet access between the car park in Täsch and the Gornergrat – on all shuttle trains and the Gornergrat Bahn.
The first completely renovated 1st and 2nd class cars of the Glacier Express are set to roll out just in time for next year’s 90th anniversary celebrations.

At the Annual General Meeting of 27 September 2019, Zermatt Bergbahnen AG was able to look back on the best financial year in the history of the company.

The opening of the world’s highest 3S cableway to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise in the autumn of 2018 was just the first stage 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". This crossing will be made possible by the addition of another structurally similar 3S cableway (tri-cable gondola lift) between Testa Grigia and the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. The first visitors should be able to make the highest crossing of the Alps in summer 2022.
After being closed for two summer seasons due to landslips, at last the Blauherd-Rothorn cable car will open again on schedule for the start of the winter season.

The submission in the summer of 2018 of the project to construct a cableway link via a 3S cableway made by LEITNER ropeways between the stations at Testa Grigia and Matterhorn glacier paradise (Klein Matterhorn) generated intensive discussions between Zermatt Bergbahnen AG (ZBAG) and the complainant, the Swiss Foundation for Landscape Conservation (Stiftung Landschaftsschutz Schweiz, or SL). With both sides offering constructive proposals, an agreement has been reached and work can now start on the realization of an "Alpine Crossing" between Zermatt and Cervinia (Italy).Details
After around two-and-a-half years’ construction work, the "Matterhorn glacier ride" – the world’s highest 3S cableway – has finally opened as planned, and Zermatt has gained a new attraction.
