Zermatt is one of the most popular and iconic Swiss ski resorts in Europe in a spectacular setting beneath the majestic Matterhorn mountain. It shares it skiing with the Italian ski resort of Cervinia.
Zermatt’s accommodation is spread far and wide up and across the valley, it’s a car-free resort but has electric buggies that act as either hotel's shuttles or expensive taxis. The town is stunning, one of the most beautiful in the Alps.
Zermatt has managed to combine the old with the new, so many high-end modern chalets sit side by side comfortably with older traditional buildings.
Zermatt’s ski range is between 1525m to 3870m and together with Cervinia offers 360km of pistes. These high snow sure slopes are ideally suited to intermediate and advanced skiers, lower level skiers and snowboarders would be better off staying in Cervinia where the slopes have less pitch.
