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!"
