As the highest altitude, largest and most efficiently developed snow sport location in the Alps, Zermatt offers an absolute snow guarantee. In winter, 350 km of piste attracts skiers of all levels. Unlimited skiing and snowboarding between Switzerland and Italy – no other destination can offer this. And in the summer? Enjoy the 20 km of pistes on the Zermatt Theodul Glacier. Carve and relax alongside national ski teams from the whole of Europe. With the Matterhorn always in sight. « less

The Glacier Express was the most incredible experience of my lifetime. It is a one of kind experience. I've been on many trains throughout Switzerland and Europe, but the Glacier Express is the most incredible of all. I cannot wait to return and do it again! Surprisingly awesome food service as well.

While the prime draw for people to go up the mountain in winter is skiing, there is an activity that they call tobogganing (which Americans would call sledding). It was so much fun zooming down a special ski run that was made just for these sleds that you sit upon. Steering was pretty easy and you could go slow or... More

Alpine handled our Zermatt adventure from landing in Zurich till we left. David took care of all the details and made sure that we knew how to get to the train, taxi, Hotel Bristol, best places to get food and of course - that we saw all the kilometers of trails on Zermatt. My 2 boys (19/21 and I) had... More

Huge ski place, very nice and amazingly fun. However, it is very expensive place but worth every penny. It is hard for me to put into words how much fun this place is. I can honestly say it changed my whole perspective on skiing and was the single coolest thing I have ever done. But beyond that, it is hard... More
