Zermatt Resort in the Swiss Alps

The slopes

With links to the Italian resorts of Cervinia and Valtournenche, Zermatt offers access to snowsports on 350km of slopes in the Matterhorn ski paradise from late November until late April. Year-round riding is also available on the Matterhorn glacier paradise. Intermediates are particularly well catered for across the Rothorn paradise, Gornergrat, Matterhorn glacier paradise and Schwarzsee paradise ski areas and beginners and advanced skiers will find plenty of pistes and powder to occupy them too.

Après-ski

A car-free town, traditional architecture rubs shoulders with modern businesses in Zermatt, which boasts a thriving après and nightlife scene at venues including the Papperla Pub and Broken Bar – the oldest cellar in Zermatt and home to the legendary wine barrels.
