The resort is absolutely stunning but can be difficult to ski. Zermatt is made up of 3 ski ares (discounting Cervinia), Klein Matterhorn, Sunnega and Gornagrat. The Klien Matterhorn is served by a modern gondola, Sunnega by a funnicular (Think London underground at rush hour) and Gornergrat by an old railway, which, if you lack patience, is not ideal as it takes about 40 minutes. The skiing is good for intermediates, the only real challenge lies in the infamous Trifji Bumps on Sunnega, this is Europes longest mogul field and gives your legs a real workout. As far as food is concerned, Zermatt is the Land if the Mountain Resturaunts, with over 40 to choose from. I would recommend Franz + Heid
