Zermatt Bergbahnen AG is planning to complete the world's highest 3S cableway by autumn 2018. With the modern cabins, designed by Pininfarina, the ride to the Matterhorn glacier paradise (Klein Matterhorn) will be more comfortable than ever. The 3S cableway made by LEITNER ropeways will complement the existing cableway and increase the carrying capacity to Europe's highest cable-car station by 2000 passengers per hour.
