A second new lift is being erected in the Stockhorn region to ensure the downhill run here remains accessible even after the closure of the Hohtälli - Stockhorn cable railway. The Hohtälli - Rote Nase cable railway and the Triftij ski lift will also remain in service.
To replace the Gornergrat - Hohtälli cable railway a new intermediate (red) ski run is being built from Hohtälli to Kellensee. This new connection will not only dramatically reduce transfer times, but will also significantly improve accessibility to the Gornergrat and Matterhorn glacier sectors.
Once again, additional snow-making is being added this summer and now approximately 60% of all pistes in Zermatt are either covered with snowmaking or on the glacier.
