Home of the Majestic Matterhorn Gareth Pilkington, Sales Manager

"Skiing in the shadow of the Matterhorn is an awesome experience and the skiing in Zermatt is as good as the scenery. There is so much terrain here and it is really well linked too. I loved skiing over to Cervinia in Italy where I had a long lunch at Lo Copa Pan. After dark you need to find Z’alt Hischi where they serve the biggest measures I have ever seen!"

Zermatt Ski Holidays

Zermatt blows every other ski resort view out of the water with its utterly breathtaking position at the foot of the magnificent Matterhorn. Located on the Swiss-Italian border, Zermatt is home to over 360km of pistes, an incredible après-ski scene and is one of the most snow sure locations in Europe. 

Linked to the neighbouring Italian resort of Cervinia, the ski area offers everything from demanding black runs to gentle beginner slopes with some mighty off-piste terrain to explore (with a guide). There is a choice of beginner areas located high up on the mountain ensuring that even novice skiers benefit from the best conditions. Intermediate and advanced skiers are spoilt for choice with plenty of long leg-burning reds and blacks and a visit to the highest point in resort at 3899m is an absolute must. From here you can enjoy some of the best views in the Alps. 

Not only does Zermatt offer fantastic skiing, it's also a charming resort with wooden chalets, cobbled streets and plenty of inviting restaurants where you can sample some delicious cuisine.
