Switzerland is seen as the home of skiing and offers everything from fairy tale scenery to spectacular mountain peaks including the Eiger, Matterhorn & Gemsstock. Whilst beginners & intermediates can perfect their turns in smaller quieter resorts such as Champery & Villars. Or if you’re wanting to combine first class skiing with world class chic, then head to St Moritz or Klosters or Zermatt, Boasting some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, Switzerland exudes ski charm and tradition.
The picturesque village of Zermatt lies at the foot of the majestic Matterhorn and has arguably the best panoramic views of any ski resort in the world. With over 350km of pistes, many over 3100m, 74 lifts, excellent après ski and year round snow, Zermatt really is hard to beat. The traffic free resort is accessed by a 20 minute railway ride, and transport around the resort is by electric taxi or horse and carriage. Lively can often be an understatement in Zermatt and a beer at the Hennu Stall Hutte on the way down from Furi is a must!
Zermatt is situated in Southern Switzerland, at the foot of the Matterhorn.
