The Sunkid with Gallery enclosure faces its ultimate test

One Sunkid Wonder Carpet with Gallery enclosure withstanding the most extreme weather conditions on Europe's longest glacier – at almost 3,500 meters above sea level

Fieschertal, Jungfraujoch (Switzerland): peak gusts up to 220km/h, extreme temperature fluctuations … and a location on the ice of a constantly shifting glacier at almost 3500 meters. Those were the challenges facing the technicians from Sunkid-Borer seeking a solution for the snow-arena on Jungfraujoch mountain.

 

Next to the Matterhorn, the Eiger, Jungfrau and Mönch are the best-known mountains in Switzerland – if not in all of Europe. The world-renowned Jungfraujoch lift has been carrying passengers up to the saddle of the three famous Dreigestirn peaks for over 100 years. Just below the upper lift station, at approx. 3500 meters above sea level and at the top of the longest glacier in Europe (23 km), the scene of pure snow and ice draws tourists from the farthest corners of the earth. These 'exotic' elements, and the experience of direct proximity to them, is the primary interest of all visitors.
