My mom and I were the only two people who had the “skip the line” ticket. You’ve the priority entrance to board the train and make sure to sit on the “right” side of the train for the gorgeous view of Matterhorn and Zermatt village. We didn’t know and sat on the wrong side! When coming down, you can sit on the same side if you want the same view. There is not much to see on the left side of the train. Also, you have free access to photo point. It took a while for people to figure out how to redeem the photo online. Make sure you choose the “4 part” and enter your ticket number to redeem it. It’s fun and beautiful. There will be a number of skiers with you on this train.

the ride with the train was amazing, and the views at the top made you feel like you reached heaven...totally recommend! it is true that it is not the highest point you can reach from zermatt, but he views from up there were really amazing.

What a fun way to see the mountain. Definitely worth the money. Hop on and off as you please.

It beautiful, I just didn't get to see the Matterhorn because the clouds were on it!
