Home of the Majestic Matterhorn Gareth Pilkington, Sales Manager

"Skiing in the shadow of the Matterhorn is an awesome experience. The skiing in Zermatt is as good as the scenery, there is so much terrain here and it is really well linked too. Skiing in to Italy for lunch is a good thing to do, I had a great (long) lunch at Cope Pan in Cervinia and I highly recommend it. After dark you need to find Z’alt Hischis 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 350km of pistes, an incredible après-ski scene and is one of the most snow-sure locations in Europe. The resort is very well connected with the largest lift in Europe the Klein Matterhorn taking you efficiently up to the Plateau Rosa glacier area. Beginners can enjoy some nice cruising blues down towards the Riffelberg while experts can take on the bumps and marked itineraries of the Stockhorn all under the watchful eye of the omnipresent Matterhorn.

The Al Bosco restaurant by the Riffelalp which serves up Matterhorn shaped pizzas comes highly recommended, as does skiing over to neighbouring Cervinia where you can sample some traditional, hearty Italian pasta to keep you fuelled for the afternoon ahead.

In the evening head to T-Bar, the number one choice amongst the locals and a sure bet to have you dancing till the early hours.
