The skiing was great but not as demanding as I was led to believe. Some of the lifts got very busy and there was a lot of walking to get to the lifts. We spent 1 hour one morning just getting from our hotel to the Trockener steg, it seemed we spent more time on lifts than skis. Zermatt is by no means cheap and we were paying about 60CHF every day on lunch, but that’s all part of the holiday. Overall, Zermatt is a lovely place and the Matterhorn is breathtaking, but the lack of ski convenience did put us off a bit as did nearly being run over a couple of times by the electric taxis!! A great ski resort, but I'd rather do ski to door
