MATTERHORN SKI PARADISE • SWITZERLAND

BEGINNER   ★★★
INTERMEDIATE   ★★★★★
ADVANCED   ★★★★★

The picturesque village of Zermatt lies at the foot of the majestic Matterhorn and has arguably the best panoramic views of any ski resort in the world.

With over 350km of pistes, many over 3100m, 54 lifts, excellent après-ski and year round snow, Zermatt really is hard to beat. The traffic-free resort is accessed by a 20 minute railway ride, and transport around the resort is by electric taxi or horse and carriage. Zermatt’s ski area is based on three areas overlooking the iconic Matterhorn and boasts the highest ski lift in Europe at 3885m.

A trip over to Cervinia is a must and the runs from the top of Plateau Rosa are superb. For the more avid skier the runs from the top of Stockhorn provide some of the best bump skiing to be had, while the off-piste is exhilarating and rightly has a world-class reputation. Lively can often be an understatement in Zermatt and a beer at the Hennu Stall Hutte on the way down from Furi is a must!
