    More about the skiing in Zermatt

  • So what's it like?

    Breathtaking scenery, great skiing & superb restaurants, Zermatt has it all

    Zermatt comes complete with amazing scenery, a huge 360km of skiing and a beautiful resort centre filled with everything you need. With the iconic Matterhorn as the backdrop, you’ll also get the opportunity to ski in Italy, as the ski area links to Cervinia. So, you can start the day in Switzerland, lunch on authentic Italian food and be back in time for dinner. This world-class ski area is known for its high altitude skiing, but has beginner areas located near the town. Intermediate and advanced skiers will be in their element with varied terrain, snow parks and off-piste skiing potential.

    Zermatt has a bustling resort atmosphere, and a buzzing nightlife. You’ll find a great après environment with plenty of bars to choose from and a varying price range depending on the style you’re looking for. There are over 100 options when it comes to dining in the evening. Try traditional restaurants or fancy bistros and enjoy the typically Swiss specialities on offer.

    If you’re looking for even more adventure you could even try heli-skiing. There are plenty of other activities, such as snowshoeing, ice skating and tobogganing that are also available. Zermatt accommodation is mostly upper end with a price tag to match, but if you want a bit of luxury for your ski holiday then there are few better places to visit than Zermatt.

    Ski information

    Ski Information Beginners

    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.

    Ski Information Intermediates

    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.

    Ski Information Advanced

    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.
