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
