New cable car system for Zermatt

Date Posted: 5th Oct 2006
Category:  Zermatt News
Ski resort Zermatt has announced that a new cable car will be completed in time for the new ski season, connecting the areas of Furi and Riffelberg.

The new eight-seat cable car allows skiers and boarders to travel into the mountains or descend into the valleys from a number of levels, with step free access to the walk-in gondolas.

According to the resort, CHF19 million (?8 million) was spent on the cable car system, which should allow 2,400 travellers on it each hour, perfect to make getting to the top of the slopes that little bit easier while you're enjoying ski holidays in Zermatt.

Many people who have been on a skiing holiday in Zermatt in the past have called for the introduction of a transport system like the cable car and now the dream has come true.

Previously, anyone on a ski holidays in Zermatt would have had to use the electric bus service to get from nearby Cervinia to the Zermatt slopes, but now the new cable car is bringing the slopes closer!
