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!

The first track in the morning

Many of the resorts in Europe, including those all around the Alps, have these early morning events, which most refer to as the first track. What's the appeal? Well, although it might not seem very relaxing having to get up early and trekking to the piste at 8 am, you'll be rewarded with the freshest powder you've ever seen. Often these first tracks will take you to parts of the resort that are off-piste, if you're so inclined to try some freeriding and more extreme winter sports. However, if that isn't for you, there's still plenty of opportunities to hit the standard slopes at the crack of dawn.

Fine dining on the slopes of Zermatt

Eating well is very important when you're on a skiing holiday, as you're getting a lot of exercise, probably more than you realise and you have to keep energy levels up, particularly if you're travelling with children. Luckily, there are lots of places nestled next to the pistes of the resort that are perfect for you to grab a quick lunch in between runs or, even better, have a relaxing dinner after you've been trekking up and down the mountain all day.

If you'd like to take in some fine dining to really chill out with the family, then On The Snow recommends that you head to the top of the mountain and in the direction of Chez Vrony. Up here, you'll find glorious views of the Matterhorn, similar to the sights you can see when you take part in the resort's first track up the mountain event. By taking part in this, you will meet an expert guide who will take you to the very top of the Matterhorn, allowing you to stop and appreciate the almost 360-degree view of the surrounding area.

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.
