Why Ski in Zermatt?
Zermatt is a ‘must ski’ resort for advanced skiers and intermediate and is one of Switzerland’s most popular ski resorts. Located in the shadow of the impressive Matterhorn Mountain, the resort is linked to the Italian ski resort of Cervinia. If you like the skiing in Val d’Isere and St Anton you will love it here!
Zermatt is located at 1620m with the slopes rising to 3820m making it some of the highest skiing in Europe.
The town has immense charm and is car free with fine 5* hotels to simple chalet style hotels offered by UK tour operators. We also offer catered ski chalets and some truly luxurious chalets that can be rented by the week are often offered on a self catered basis too. Chocolate box styled chalets are scattered around the hills that surround the town and other buildings built in a local style add to the charm of this most popular of ski resorts.
Reaching the resort is either by coach from Geneva or more popular, is a train that travels on single track lines through the mountains which is always our clients preferred way to arrive, as the station is just on the edge of town.
Lifts depart from the two ends of the town know as Sunnegga and Gornergrat but the two areas are connected higher up.
The mountains themselves are home to what are regarded as some of the best mountain restaurants anywhere in the world. Zermatt has the highest tree line in any European resort so makes it ideal if the weather closes in.
