Zermatt is renowned for being a lively and vibrant resort, located at the foot of the Matterhorn, with a fantastic skiing atmosphere. This resort has exceptional panoramic views with a diverse aprés-ski that is bound to entertain you. This is a mountain village filled with electric taxis, horse-drawn carriages and roads filled with beautiful little boutiques. Why not ski the Klein? One of the Europe's longest slopes (13km) that starts at the incredible height of 3820m! The aprés-ski is just as extraordinary as the skiing itself, with around three dozen mountain restaurants, each with a sublime view of the majestic Matterhorn. You must also taste the exquisite Swiss gastronomy within its numerous authentic chalets. You ski right up to your chalet door and within minutes be sipping on a nice hot cup of Glüwein (spiced warm wine) with a slice of homemade Apfestrudel (local apple pie), all followed by a moon lit ski descent before experiencing the vibrant nightlife!

All news Skiset Skiset News : Zermatt
365 days of Zermatt

One of the best things about Zermatt - other than the fact you can ski there basically anytime you want - is that you can partake in cross-border skiing. As late as May, you'll be able to start in Austria and finish up in the Italian village of Cervinia, which is well known for its exciting skiing activities, including heliskiing. If you're going to take part in this activity, you should be aware that only those who are interested in and capable of extreme snowsports ought to apply for it. This is because heliskiing takes you far beyond the normal pistes, these are no black runs, the terrain you're going to be coming across is unchartered and completely untainted by other people and their skis or boards... have at it!

First track at the Matterhorn

Those who are well-seasoned skiing aficionados will know that Zermatt is the proud home of the Matterhorn, one of the most famous peaks throughout the Alps. Not only this, but it's a paradise for people who are looking for a skiing challenge as it's one of the highest mountain tops in the area and boasts four steep faces that are favoured among both professionals and hobbyists.

As the Matterhorn is so well known, its slopes can be extremely busy as skiers and snowboarders come to tackle it time and again. Often those who compete professionally will come to Zermatt to use the mountain as the perfect practise route for their freestyle competitions. For this reason, it can be difficult to find a time when it isn't extremely busy, although this won't be a problem for most, as there can be a lot to learn from watching other people take on the piste.

Snowshoeing around the Matterhorn

Zermatt is of course already a very keen attraction for snowsports fans, largely thanks to the foreboding presence of the Matterhorn, and it's this that is the focus of the showshoeing excursion event in this alpine village. If you're interested in taking part, you'll be doing a snowshoe tour along the Matterhorn glacier trail from Trockener Steg to Schwarzsee. Trockener Steg, where you'll be starting from, is a minor prominence in the area between the Matterhorn and the Briethorn, south of Zermatt in the canton of Valais.

Then you'll be taking a unique and beautiful trek all the way around the Matterhorn itself to finish up in Schwarzsee, which is a small lake in the Swiss pre-Alps bordering the peaks of Schwyberg, Les Reccardets and Kaiseregg. By taking this snowshoeing adventure you'll be experiencing a genuinely fascinating mountain world that you wouldn't get to see under skiing or snowboarding circumstances. Other sights that you can expect to see include the mountain giants of Dent Blanche and Gabelhorn, which will look like they're literally rising up in front of you.

Zermatt - the picturesque option?

When winter sports fans start planning their winter trips to the Alps, many things will come to mind: Packing lists, making sure passports are in date and ski hire arrangements, to name but three.

However, for those who do not go to the same resort every year, all sorts of considerations may come to mind when making choices: Accessibility from airports, the quality of accommodation, the apres ski and, of course, how good the actual runs are on the mountainside.

For some, an issue that may be overlooked is that of aesthetics. Most places will look nice with soaring mountains and glistening snow, but some will genuinely look more attractive.

Zermatt Music Festival coming this September

This September, it's time for the Zermatt Music Festival. The annual collection of musical magic is set to run from September 11th to 20th 2015. There are various events planned for the fest, some of which you have to pay for, others of which are free. Tickets are already on sale.

The official Zermatt Music Festival and Academy website lists an evening featuring pieces by Mozart and Schubert as the opening concert of the autumn event, on September 11th.

The Scharoun Ensemble Berlin will perform here, as will the Zermatt Festival Orchestra. Soprano Regula Mühlemann will add her voice to the evening and it's all directed by Christian Zacharias, who will also be playing the piano.
