Superb ski resort to challenge all levels. I am a ski instructor and enjoyed the chance to have 7 great days of skiing. There is enough challenge and variety for all levels if you choose to pace your days sensibly. Get to Cervinia on a good weather day and ski mile after mile ...

Few places can match its combination of excellent advanced and intermediate slopes, reliable snow, magnificent scenery, Alpine charm and mountain restaurants with superb food and stunning views. Zermatt is not ideal for beginners, despite recent efforts to improve matters. Moreover Zermatt is pricey. The lift passes are one of the most expensive around. The lifts are not very well connected and tend to be crowded. ...

Zermatt is a beautiful resort with some excellent skiing to be done. It’s a place that every skier should experience at least once in their lives. the town is in the altitude of 1620 m whereas the highest lift-station, Gobba di Rollin, is in the altitude of 3899 m. The total vertical height difference is therefore a respectable 2279 m. Furthermore, its possible to ski all the way down to Zermatt from Gobba di Rollin, if one so wishes. Matterhorn Ski Paradise and its 197 km of marked pistes are naturally divided into three distinct areas: Sunnegga Paradise, Gornergrat area, and Matterhorn Glacier Paradise and Schwarzsee Paradise. Matterhorn Glacier Paradise is also lift-linked with the ...

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. ...

Zermatt is wonderfully vibrant town. Downtown is filled with bustling shops, exquisite restaurants and lively pubs. The town is fun, but bring your cash as it is truely the Aspen of Europe pricewise. Combined with the Italian terrain of Bruil-Cervinia and Valtournenche, it is an enormous alpine area that is completely connected. You can ski from the Rothorn Paradise to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, over to the Italian side and all the way to the Schwartzsee Paradise without ever going all the way back to town/base area. The on-piste terrain is moderately challenging. The Stockhorn area is the most notable exception, but it is more of a mogul field than off-piste terrain. There are obvious...
