Zermatt Ski Resort is often referred to as “The Matterhorn Ski Resort.” The Matterhorn rises up in a pyramidal peak of 4,478 meters over Switzerland and Italy. Making it one of the highest summits in Europe.

Zermatt caters to intermediate and advanced skiers who can take the lifts up to the peaks and enjoy the ski runs on endless slopes set against a spectacular Alpine backdrop.

The ultimate free riding experience can be found at Zermatt on 36 km of marked free ride trails in the areas of Rothorn, Stockhorn and Schwarzsee where you get the full powder experience without the risk of avalanches.

Kermit skiers

For many people, Zermatt is simply the best all-round ski resort in the Alps with its extensive varied slopes, magnificent mountain scenery, fabulous snow, unique and charming village base, not to mention its world-class mountain restaurants, vibrant nightlife and more non-skiing activities than you can shake a pole at, it’s easy to see why.

Activities off the slopes include snowshoe trails, hiking trails, toboggan, cross country ski, ice skating, paragliding, an igloo village and taking a spectacular cable-car ride to the top of the 3840m Klein Matterhorn, with its viewing platform and ice grotto.

Lined by quirky bars, luxury boutiques, adventure sports shops, numerous interesting shops, grocery stores, top notch restaurants, an ice-rink, cinema, Alpine museum and stunning views Zermat's busy main street is the perfect place for an early evening promenade.   Zermatt is the Swiss capital of gourmet cuisine with several Michelin star restaurants and many others among the best in the country.

apres ski fermât

Zermatt has a wide range of après-ski (social activities and entertainment following a day’s skiing) options to suit most tastes, ages and paces!  The village is known for its fun crowds and live bands. It’s considered one of the best party ski resorts in Switzerland.

With such high altitude comes extremely cold temperatures.  You will want to pack for practicality and a little flair for apre ski.  Although Zermat feels like a glam ski town we advise you to leave the high heels at home and wear warm and comfortable footwear for those cobble stone streets.  Follow our winter fashion guide to be prepared for your trip and guarantee a most pleasurable time.
