Zermatt is one of, if not the most famous ski resort town in the Swiss Alps. Located in the Valais canton, Zermatt is surrounded by beautiful peaks. Some examples of those peaks include the Dom (4,545m), Weisshorn (4,505m) and the Matterhorn (4,478m). With mountains like that gazing down from all sides, Zermatt would be an excellent place to visit just for the scenery alone. However, the purpose of this 3 day trip is to enjoy what Zermatt is most famous for, the skiing!
The skiing in Zermatt is nothing short of incredible. And on this trip the focus will be on freeride, or off-piste skiing, so you will have a chance to explore a great deal of the area, while also taking advantage of the top-of-the-line, modern ski lifts.
Weather conditions will dictate much of what we can and don’t do. However, if the weather is on our side, the options are plentiful. We may ascend the majestic Breithorn mountain (4,164m), while enjoying its slopes. Or we may venture into Zermatt’s Italian counterpart, Cervinia, for even more great skiing.
There will be no shortage of gorgeous places to ski and incredible things to see on this trip. There are also several hotels that can be found throughout the area, so you can rest assured you will be resting in the nights comfortably as well.
Filled with high glaciers and exciting slopes and routes, the skiing in Zermatt is deserving of its reputation. I have no doubt you will have such an exciting and memorable time here the 3 days will end so fast you’ll want to experience them again.
