SWISS ACCOLADE FOR PRINOTH - THE LEITWOLF IN ZERMATT

Zermatt, a place that makes the hearts of mountaineers worldwide beat faster. The majestic Matterhorn, Switzerland's landmark and probably the most famous mountain in the world, rises majestically above the Swiss holiday resort. Thousands of mountaineers come here every year to meet the challenge of the 4478 meters in altitude and follow in the footsteps of many legends.

Of course, the Zermatt Bergbahnen AG ski area is also one of the most prestigious ski destinations in the world. It's not only those who are looking for a sporting challenge that come to Zermatt - the rich and beautiful are continuously coming and going here.

A perfect slope is the minimum requirement! It is therefore not surprising that Markus Hasler, CEO of the Zermatt Bergbahnen AG ski region, relies on the expertise of the world's best snow groomer: Zermatt is LEITWOLF country!

“In the years 2014 and 2016, Zermatt took first place in the "Best Ski Resort" ski resort rating,” says a delighted Markus Hasler. “The Slope Quality and Slope Grooming category was rated by the demanding guests with absolute top marks. A confirmation and at the same time an accolade for the work performance and quality of PRINOTH’s LEITWOLF snow groomers.” The latest achievement for Zermatt was recently brought to the new Swiss home: a LEITWOLF X in exclusive Zermatt mountain railway design!

LEITNER ROPEWAYS: THE WORLD' S HIGHEST 3-CABLE ROPEWAY ON THE KLEIN MATTERHORN

The ski resort of superlatives sets the highest standards everywhere. The Zermatt LEITWOLF fleet provides the perfect slopes; our colleagues at LEITNER for high-altitude trips in an elegant design: the world's highest three-rope cable car is being built here on time for the start of the 2018/2019 winter season.

3,821 m above sea level, to be precise. A spectacular project with its own specific hazards! The air conditions at high altitudes put much more strain on the body than in the valley and the danger of crevasses requires special caution. To make matters worse, you have the harsh weather conditions. “In spite of the most challenging environmental conditions, the excellent cooperation between all companies involved in the construction work made it possible to make considerable progress. The realization of the largest construction project in our history is on track,” says Markus Hasler, CEO of Zermatt Bergbahnen AG.
