Zermatt Ski Resort, Switzerland, is home to the highest slopes in Europe. This popular ski area is nestled at the base of the Matterhorn Mountain, excellent for winter sports enthusiasts that are looking to let off steam on the snowy peaks. Further to the ski paradise of groomed pistes, Zermatt offers a wide range of fun in and around the resort. Be sure to discover its impressive off-piste terrain, Zermatt Villages apres-ski options and off the slope’s activities that all make for a luxury ski holiday in Europe.

Soaring to an impressive 3,883 kilometres, you’ll find Europe’s unrivalled slopes of skiable snow on the sun-kissed peaks. Comprised of four ski areas, Rothorn, Gornergrat, the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise and Cervinia, Zermatt hosts ski runs for all levels of skiers and snowboarders. Access all the runs and ski areas effortlessly with the cable cars and chairlift links that connect all four. If you have come with children between the ages of three and five, Zermatt offers an exciting Swiss Ski School with lessons taught by Snowli Kids Village. Providing entertainment for hours, your kids can enjoy the fairytale figures, magic conveyer belts and 3,500 metre slopes for them to practice on.

200 kilometres of Zermatt’s pistes cater to beginners and intermediate skiers, with green runs accessible by the Gornergrat and Riffelberg chairlifts. If you’re an expert seeking advanced skiing, take the Trocker Steg gondola chairlift. Don’t miss the opportunity to ski over into Cervinia, Italy, to enjoy some more ski slopes and food stops, perfect for the adventurous skiers. You’ll be crossing the border, so make sure to bring your passport! After your Italian adventure, take the Matterhorn Express gondola to Klein Matterhorn, the highest cable car station in Europe and a well-known point or the spectacular views of the snow-covered Matterhorn face.

Of course, there is plenty to feed your explorer appetite off the slopes. Enjoy the vibrant culture of the village that is situated at the hilt of Matterhorn. Weave your way through the Bahnhofstrasse main street and browse through the boutique shops, finishing your shopping spree with an evening in the lively apres-ski scene.

A myriad of superb accommodation is available to emphasize your luxury ski break. We recommend staying in the three-time award winning Chalet Zermat Peak. After your adventure-filled days on the slopes, you can come back to your chalet with loved ones and recharge. Enjoy lazy mornings on your wrap-around terrace taking in the panoramic views and stunning backdrops of the mountains and village.
