As a matter of fact, Breuil-Cervinia and Zermatt are connected by slopes only and the lifts functioning depends on the weather conditions, to this day.
Crossing the border may be tricky with the risk of being stuck in a foreign country. Moreover, it would be impossible for non-skier tourists, who don’t have the equipment needed, to ski downhill.
Finally the long-awaited moment has arrived: the “Alpine Crossing” will connect Piccolo Cervino and Testa Grigia allowing everyone to cross the border between Italy and Switzerland with or without skis!
This revolutionary project will connect Zermatt and Cervinia all year round and it will no longer depend on the climate circumstances.
The opening date of the new cableway is confirmed on the 1st of July 2023.
The idea of a connection between Italy and Switzerland is not new. As a matter of fact, the first project to link Zermatt and Cervinia dates back to 1939.
It took more than 80 years for this dream to become reality and starting from this summer, the lift will be finally functioning.
This new lift will allow all the mountain lovers to enjoy this premium experience at the estimated cost of € 240 for a round trip ticket.
Without a shadow of a doubt, the connection between the two countries will increase the tourists flow both ways and their curiosity to discover the alpine mountains in Winter and Summer.
