Plateau Rosa cable car
In three stages at Plateau Rosa: Winter and Summer ski paradise, but also a high-altitude viewpoint on Matterhorn.
Summer and winter opening.
Departure: Breuil-Cervinia (2050 m)
Arrival: Plateau Rosa (2500 m)
The departures of the gondola lift (6 seats) and the Cervinia-Plan Maison cable car are located a short distance from the center of the village of Breuil-Cervinia, at an altitude of 2,050 metres, and lead to Plan Maison at an altitude of 2,550 meters above sea level in the heart of the Matterhorn ski area from where it is possible to reach Plateau Rosà/Testa Grigia at 3500 meters and Colle del Teodulo with other lifts or, in Winter season, return to Breuil-Cervinia by skis.
At the start of the lifts there are numerous parking spaces (free parking), cash desks for the purchase of tickets and a café.
From Plan Maison, a 12-passenger cablecar reaches Cime Bianche Laghi from which the cable car to Plateau Rosa starts.
The cablecar to Plateau Rosa has innovative technical features and a design that gives it a slender line and allows you to make the best use of the windows to guarantee a breathtaking panorama: the large windows that surround the cabins appear like a terrace projected into the void conveying to passengers the sensation of a journey into the heart of the Alps.
In all the arrival stations of the lifts it is possible to stop for a break:
- cable car or cable car: Breuil Cervinia-Plan Maison
- cable car: Plan Maison-Cime Bianche Laghi
- cable car: Cime Bianche Laghi-Plateau Rosa
The cable car allows you to reach the area for skiing - even in Summer - but it is an experience not to be missed even for those who don't ski and want to enjoy the high mountains, the clear sky, the intense light of the sun and the crisp air.
From Plateau Rosa it is also possible to continue on the Swiss side by taking another cable car up to the Piccolo Cervino where you can visit the ice cave and from which you can descend to Zermatt. To know more
