Zermatt

Read our guide to Zermatt, a lively, sophisticated resort that's in the shadow of the fearsome and formidable Matterhorn. Ski and snowboard in Switzerland this winter for a holiday you will never forget.

Where?

When you ski Zermatt, this ski resort gives you the chance to ski the Klein Matterhorn (3899m), one of the largest glaciers in Europe. There are links to the Italian resorts of Cervinia and Valtourneche just across the border, so there are plenty of choices for you to ski and snowboard here. Access is via Sion and Geneva airports and the roads are pretty good for access.

WE LIKE

  • Reliable snow at altitude - Best of the Alps resort. Great mountain restaurants.
  • Wonderful, high and extensive slopes and three/four varied areas, amazing world class off piste. You can also ski over to Cervinia in Italy.
  • Spectacular high-mountain scenery, dominated by the Matterhorn

WE DON'T LIKE

  • Beginners should go elsewhere, there are limited slopes for them here. Many of the hotels are also situated away from the main lifts.
  • Still a very expensive resort and one of Europe's priciest lift passes.
  • The ski area is quite confusing, hiring a ski guide for the first few days could be a good idea.

On the slopes

Ski holidays in Zermatt offer something for all levels of skier and boarder with several snow parks such as the year-round Gravity Park, and plenty of great off-piste for freeriders. Intermediates will enjoy a range of scenic slopes with views across to the Matterhorn, and the long intermediate run into Cervinia is a great way to work up an appetite for a good Italian lunch. Experienced skiers and riders head for the Trockener Steg - Klein Matterhorn - Schwarzsee sector. All round skiing and boarding for everyone.
