The system is called the Matterhorn Glacier Ride. It connects vertices Trockener Steeg (Trockener Steg, 2939 meters above sea level) and the Klein Matterhorn (Klein Matterhorn, 3883 m). At its construction took two years and it took 52 million Swiss francs.
The system consists of two support cables and one traction rope loop, which makes the lift more stable in situations of high wind load. At this time the ultra-modern cable cars in the world there are only half a dozen. Thus, according to the engineer from the Italian company-manufacturer of ropeways, Jan SORG, the system in Zermatt “surpasses them all in height, and the distance between the peaks”.
Cable car can travel 25 gondolas designed including people with disabilities. A road capable of carrying up to 2tysyachi people per hour. Delivery of passengers to the maximum height is nine minutes.
