With the opening of the world's highest 3S gondola lift on the Klein Matterhorn (Switzerland) on Sep­tember 29, 2018, several record-breaking facts have now been rolled into a single project. The four-kilometer journey to almost 4,000 meters above sea level leads to Europe's highest top station. The eight-kilometer long hauling rope weighs an impressive 67 tons and is freely suspended over a distance of three kilometers at the longest span of the system.
