Zermatt gets new ski run and lifts
The always-popular Swiss resort looks set to increase its profile further with the additions.
A new run is to link the Hohtalli area with Gornergrat, reducing transfer times and maximising fun times for people on ski holidays in Zermatt.
Meanwhile, two new lifts are to be added - one in Sunnegga and one in Stockhorn.
The Sunnegga lift is a heated, detachable quad lift, able to carry 2,000 people per hour and is served by an underground station at Sunnega.
Stockhorn's new facility is to enable the accessibility of the downhill run in the event that the Hohtalli-Stockhorn cable railway is closed.
Ski holidays in Zermatt offer travellers a commitment to the highest standards of resort enhancement with a fun, adventurous sporting landscape.
The resort's many fans - including Prince William - are sure to find their excitement about the upcoming season is boosted by news of these developments.
