"We want to offer our guests perfect skiing enjoyment - so the innovation has come at just the right time," he added.
Meanwhile, other exciting new features ready to be experienced by those on ski holidays in Zermatt include three new ski lifts.
The two-seat chairlift on the Sunnegga paradise via Findeln to Breitboden route is being replaced with a four-seat chairlift which also boasts heated seats.
