First cabin reached the Matterhorn glacier paradise

Spectacular flight with helicopter

One week ago the first Pininfarina cabin for the tricable gondola lift Matterhorn glacier paradise has arrived at the foot of the Klein Matterhorn. The cabin’s journey started at the production hall of the cabin manufacturer Sigma in France. It has been transported with a special truck to Cervinia (IT). From there the cabin, weighing 1950 kg, floated up with a helicopter to the station “Trockener Steg” at a height of 3.000 meters where LEITNER ropeways is constructing the new 3S gondola lift. The cabin will now be used for adjusting works in the bottom station.

 

The new gondola lift will start operation on 29th of September 2018 and will bring guests in only nine minutes to the Klein Matterhorn at a height of over 3.800 meters.
