Zermatt, skiing in the heart of Europe's highest ski area
Between Switzerland and Italy, Zermatt lies in the heart of the highest peaks in the Alps Indeed, more than a third of them rise above 4,000 m and as such they are sheer heaven for experienced skiers.
A resort nestled in an exceptional Alpine setting
Here at the foot of the Matterhorn, the most photographed mountain in the world, Zermatt extends a welcome to its visitors. Whilst the panorama certainly draws the crowds, this is also a unique and exceptional ski terrain. Given its elevation (between 1,620 and 3,882 metres), keen skiers can enjoy the snow all year round under the sun as they move freely between Italy and Switzerland.
Good to know: ski in summer or winter
In winter, this terrain boasts 360 km of pistes with something for all ability levels. In summer, 21 km of pistes await skiers on the Theodul Glacier. So, the fun is guaranteed 365 days a year with equipment hire available from one of the resort's ski rental shops.
A nice resort, surrounded by nature
To conserve its environment, the resort is only accessible to pedestrians and electric cars. As well as catering to all of your holiday shopping needs (ski rental, ski schools, grocery stores, etc.), the resort also offers many award-winning fine dining restaurants. This all makes Zermatt the perfect resort for skiing, relaxation and enjoying the clean mountain air.
Perfectly groomed pistes, shopping and ski rental available in the resort centre and panoramas you won’t find anywhere else in Europe all await when you holiday in Zermatt.
