In the summer season the Rothorn paradise is perhaps the quietest of the mountaintop cable car routes around Zermatt. There is a pleasant cafe at the top with a spectacular panoramic terrace and free wifi to boot. The ascent from Zermatt to Sunnegga is via vernacular railway and gondolas, with the last stint in a single large cable car. This... More

Of course it is a great place to see Matterhorn is being liked, but nothing up here in summer I guess...

Easy walk up from Blauherd to Stellisee (15-20 minutes) and a great hike down. Trams and cable cars add up fast so price the Swiss train half price card before you leave home!

The Rothorn gondola gives skiiers as well as photographers, like me, more privacy as it is less crowded. I got spectacular views of the inverted heart shaped Weisshorn mountain from there.

My favorite side of the resort. Less people (in mid-april… ssshhh..t, don't tell), because the snow is less exceptional than the Klein Matterhorn at this time of year. But the views are spectacular, there are numerous interesting black slopes and remote red ones.

Top skiing for intermediate/expert skiers. Excellent when the weather is too windy elsewhere in the Zermatt area. Incredible 360 degree scenery.

We did this the day after the Gornergrat Bahn. The view was unparalleled, but we were nervous with our little ones at the top. There were open areas with very few barriers. I would not recommend the adventure with the very young or old. The journey to the top was not as enjoyable as the Gonergrat, as there were hoards... More

When sunny shines, that place is wonderful. The slopes are in extremely good shape. If there is cloudy, it's quite hard to see the slopes.

Slopes in excellent condition, steep and long runs and a wide choice of services, some very nice restaurants. Great access with Sunegga train. The last section to Rothorn sometimes crowded.
