On a ski day or just to enjoy the view, the Matterhorn Glacier Express ultra-modern new cable car is an experience in itself. Comfortable seats, sound system, tourist information, ultra smooth, fast and silent. The ride is spectacular over the glaciers. And it is the highest gondola you can find in Europe. Worth every minute. These shots are from Easter week end 2022 when you have the ski resort almost for yourself.
Worth a day visit.
