A magnet for winter sports connoisseurs, nestling at the foot of the majestic Matterhorn in the Valais canton of Switzerland. In car-free Zermatt village, electric buggies hum around streets lined with fabulous designer boutiques, chic restaurants and buzzing après-ski bars nestled alongside old Valaisian style wooden barns. An ideal choice for non-skiers who can use many of the mountain lifts to access the world class mountain restaurants and spectacular winter walking. Ski Area With its reliable snow, magnificent scenery and Alpine charm, Zermatt offers some of the most attractive skiing in Europe. The Gornegrat cog railway and Sunnegga underground funicular access two of Zermatt’s four ski areas, a delight for intermediates who can cruise easy going pistes interlinked to more challenging reds. From the other end of the village the Matterhorn Express goes up to the smaller Schwarzsee area then skyward towards the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise complete with vast glacial panoramas and links over to the Italian resort of Cervinia. With a guide, off-piste potential is superb for both experts and those who wish to venture off-piste for the first time.
