Zermatt, Switzerland


You won’t get any higher…the mountain lifts in the Zermatt and the surrounding areas take you to the highest heights in the alps – up to 3,883 m. No other words than “Wow” to cover that.

The resort has 200 km of pistes across three linked sectors – Sunnegga-Blauherd-Rothorn, Gornergrat-Stockhorn and Trockener Steg-Schwarzsee. Due to heavy investments, the lift system is now as slick as any in France or Austria and queues are rare. Furthermore you can go to Cervinia in Italy as lift systems are now linked. A very nice feature is that lifts operates from 8.00 in the morning so you can really make the most of your (expensive!) lift pass.

Trails: 200 km
Lifts: 15 (+ 5 surface lifts)

    I have just seen this very nice series on Netflix called The Horn and wanted to promote it to everyone interested in the Zermatt area. It is very existing and a bit scary but we all know that Zermatt is the best place for skiing so naturally they also have the best rescue services 🙂 Hopefully will never need it!!

    Ski area 5 stars. Cost of staying here – 1 star. This is a great place but it is far too expensive compared to similar areas.

    Bring lot’s of cash – and your camera 😉 Zermatt was my first (and only) trip to Europe for skiing and beware – it is expensive (!) but it is also truly magnificent. I don’t know the other areas but if it is anything like this I would want to live here when I get old. Can you imagine being here in the summer too?! We went to, think it is called kleine Matterhorn as you can’t go up on Matterhorn itself, but you still get up to around 3800m and the views are just so unbelievable… this is the, without doubt, best experience I have ever had in terms of seeing spectacular things. I wanna go again but d… it is expensive
