2018/2019


The world's highest 3S cableway

The new lift combines cutting-edge technology with top-class design. This enhances ride comfort, makes the cableway more stable, minimizes essential maintenance work and increases the service life of the individual components – an outstanding technical achievement.

2017/2018


Hours Card

Should the day of skiing be short, only one or two hours? Then the Hours Card is the right thing to do. Within one, two or three hours one receives a partial reimbursement upon the return of the ski pass at the ticket office. The shorter the stay on the slopes, the greater the repayment is.

Easy SkiCard

Only pay for those mountain sections that are used. This is the motto of the new Easy SkiCard. This means: you can download points online and off you go. The more points you download, the more you can profit from the price advantage. A point deduction is made on the Easy SkiCard points account each time a ski lift is used. At the end of the ski day, winter sports athletes are then sent detailed daily usage accounting by e-mail.

Widening of the Landtunnel slope

As of the 2014/2015 winter season, the previous Landtunnel slope will be widened. This will provide a more comfortable and enjoyable skiing experience from the Gornergrat area to the Schweigmatte near the Weiler Furi.

New Howete ski slope

The lower section of the Dorf slope in the Rothorn - Sunnegga section was previously a bottleneck. It has now been expanded and a separate pedestrian path has been added. Great for great curves down to the village.

2013/2014


2012/2013


New extremely steep slope in Cervinia

The new slope No. 59 leads skiers through a world of superlatives. 65% inclines at the steepest sections, a hell ride on skis directly beneath the Matterhorn. 250 vertical meters must be conquered on a length of 750 meters on this black slope located on the Italian side near Cervinia. Take a deep breath and enjoy the southern side of the Matterhorn in relaxed curves.

Champagne gondola for VIPs

Enjoyable mountain ascent in the VIP gondola of the Matterhorn-Express. Comfortable seats, a glass of champagne, nice music. Once up at the Trockener Steg, the VIPs can enjoy new adventures in Zermatt.

General refurbishment of the Restaurant Blauherd

The restaurant located at 2571 m above sea level presents its new concept as a lounge bar with a large terrace as of the new season. A cozy and modern atmosphere for sun lovers with more entertainment, larger drinks and a small, yet finer menu.

More room on the Sonnenecke

The largest wait-staffed mountain restaurant in Zermatt, the Restaurant Sunnegga, provides more room for its guests. With the reconstruction into a self-service buffet with a modern and tested design, the waiting times for hungry skiers have been reduced.
