One of my favourite places

Perfect snow with perfect views. The run down Ventina (number 7) is probably one of the longest runs you will ever do.

We took a gondola ride from Zermatt to the visitors plateau where we enjoyed a patio, lunch and wine while taking in the incredible vistas of the surrounding mountains, and glaciers below. The air is cold, fresh and stimulating. The patio areas provide room to enjoy every vista and comfort they have to offer. Great for a day, and a... More

This is a museum that I really want to go back. the ice sculptures are really amazing and the feeling that you are inside a glazier is breathtaking. It is very cold and I do not recommend children to go here because it is too cold.

The picturesque cable car journey took an hour from Zermatt up to the top of the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. Peaceful, breathtaking, and humbling. The final stretch of the ride takes you up the steepest portion of the journey and it definitely isn't for the faint hearted however once you arrive, you are on top of the world. Not to be... More

We were very fortunate to have a solid week of blue skies and low wind in early February. We've skied in other parts of the Swiss and Italian Alps, but this is our favorite so far. A few tips: Stay up on the mountain if you can. We stayed at Schwarzsee Hotel and the ski-in ski-out was great! I wouldn't... More

If are lucky enough, and the sunny shines, prepare to unbelievable views! If there are clouds, the visibility will be about 10 meters.

When you look at the trail map, it looks like you see loops where the gondola ends, it actually is just a stop along the way. We got off too early 2x on our first day (rookie move). The lift takes lots of turns and goes down before going back up and ending.

Exciting cable ride from Zermatt on Mar. 18th, endless scenic view along the way to Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, and the best view of the Matterhorn peak from viewing area (3,887 m ASL)

One of the most enjoyable ski experiences I have had. Awesome. It is high up and oxygen in short supply so one good tip is to move slowly, but even for one prone to altitude sickness like myself, this small precaution is adequate. It was cold when we went there too, so layers are important. All in all a real... More
