Zermatt, with its 200km of pistes, is rightly the destination for Alpine enthusiasts all over the world. Nestled at the foot of the Matterhorn, Zermatt combines lavish yet traditional alpine charm with world-class terrain. For those seeking adventure, the resort offers Heli-Skiing, possible on the Monte Rosa and the Aschhorn, allowing exploration of otherwise unreachable terrain. The attractive village centre is littered with chalets, luxury hotels and apartments as well as horse drawn carriage. Much of the area is still farmland, so you’ll often find farmers tending to their animals a few hundred meters from the village centre.
Zermatt is situated in the Swiss canton of Valais with its landmark mountain the Matterhorn, attracting visitors for hundreds of years.
The skiing in Zermatt is considered the best in the world with 200km of pistes, but its connection with neighbouring Cervinia-Valtournenche takes the accessible kilometres to a staggering 360km. This, combined with its altitude makes it one of the only resorts in Europe to offer skiing all year round.
Boasting Europe’s highest ski station at 3883m there is a vast quantity of skiable terrain sat at 2000m or more, which means conditions throughout the year are excellent. There is a great variety of expansive blues and reds as well as black runs to challenge those on a mission to improve, plus the lift system across both resorts is efficient, modern and pistes are well groomed at all times.
For those seeking adventure the resort offers Heli-Skiing, possible on the Monte Rosa and the Aschhorn, allowing exploration of otherwise unreachable terrain.
The views in Zermatt are in a class of their own, The Matterhorn is one that clearly cannot be missed and is often the reason the resort is chosen by visitors year after year, it towers above the village at 4478m and you’ll also spot the lesser known Monte Rosa at 4634m, both picturesque and majestic, making for a truly special ski holiday.
The attractive village centre is littered with quaint chalets, luxury hotels and apartments as well as horse drawn carriage to really set the scene. Much of the area surrounding the resort is still farmland to this day, so you’ll often find farmers tending to their animals a few hundred meters from the village centre.
As a car free resort it has preserved its traditional charm and fresh mountain air, to compensate there are practical electric buses and taxis allowing visitors ease of movement in the resort, particularly from where the Täsch Train drops guests.
