So what's it like?
Breathtaking scenery, great skiing & superb restaurants, Zermatt has it all
Spectacularly situated beneath the majestic Matterhorn, Zermatt has everything to offer in the way of fantastic skiing, picturesque surroundings and a lively nightlife. Particularly well suited to intermediate and advanced skiers the high altitude ensures reliable snow conditions throughout the season. Zermatt ski resort is also linked to Cervinia in Italy, so you can start the day in Switzerland, lunch in Italy and be back in time for dinner.
The wide-open runs of the Sunnegga and Trokenersteg provide the ideal terrain for beginners, while the slopes of the Gornergrat, reached after a spectacular cog-wheel train journey, should be easily manageable after a few lessons from the expert ski school.
Zermatt is a true intermediate's paradise with a tremendous variety of runs available including scenic descents through trees and long red runs. Take the cable car to the Rothorn paradise where there are several challenging red runs and one that will take you all the way back to Zermatt. Choose a sunny day to ski over to Cervinia (included on area lift pass) and try the 14kms run from the Plateau Rosa.
Every good skier should experience the challenging black runs, fantastic off-piste and guaranteed snow. Try the Trifti - one of Europe's longest and most difficult mogul slopes. Other highlights include the gun-barrel Tiefbach descent and the Schwarzsee, Stockhorn and Matterhorn glacier paradise areas.
Lively nightlife with an excellent range of cafés and bars · Papperla bar, Elsie's place, the bar Vernissage, the Village, Brown Cow and the Pink Elephant for jazz.
