New attraction: “Crystal Ride“ in Zermatt

Matterhorn glacier paradise in summer

Just in time for the start of the winter season 2018/2019, the world’s highest 3S cableway (three-cable system) goes into operation, leading up to the Klein Matterhorn near Zermatt.

Very special highlights of this state-of-the-art cableway are the four “Crystal Ride” cabins with their glass floors. Apart from a fashionable ride, they offer passengers a breath-taking view downward.

A genuine thrill ride

The cabins go by the name of “Crystal Ride”. They are the undisputed attractions of the highest and most modern three-cable system cableway (3S cableway) in the world. During the nine-minute ascent to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise (Klein Matterhorn), these four special cabins reveal a spectacular view: Three minutes into the ride, at around 170 metres above ground, the opaque glass floor suddenly clears and in a matter of seconds opens up the magnificent view onto the glacier scape.

Roughly 280’000 Swarovski crystals embellish four of the 25 cabins of the new “Matterhorn Glacier Rides”. Each cabin offers 28 comfortable and spacious seats, inspired by car design and made from leather and Alcantara. The cabin ceiling with more than 13 square metres of star-like LED lamps makes for a very special atmosphere inside the cabin.
