I found the level of piste difficulties very varied, as expected. I did venture up and over the mountain and down into the Italian side, Cervinia, where I found the snow and wind conditions better than in Zermatt. In the mornings I would catch the train from the town center up to the Gornergrat area where I would have some warm up runs before making my way down to the main cable car/s to head up to the top of the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. The village was a dream, more shops than you can explore, restaurants everywhere and the apres skiing endless! I enjoyed seeing the horse drawn carriages traveling down the streets and hearing the faint jingle of the bells on the electric taxi cars.
