The Sunnegga Express ( check if it's operating, spring and autumn closures) takes you to the beautiful area of Leisee and vicinity. Great place for kids and adults, easy to get to by walking or with a special short cable train (no charge) with a spectacular view of the Matterhorn . Possibility of playing on the border of the lake,... More

Most activities begin in May. Its a paradise for the locals as the ski slopes are quite easily accessible. However it closes pretty early, the last train back is by 6:30 pm and we were not informed about this before buying the tickets at 5:30, which gave us pretty less time at the venue. On a clear day, offers spectacular... More

After reading about the Gourmetweg hike, where you can stop at lovely Swiss restaurants along the way, I had to give it a shot! You take the cable train to Sunnega, and then hike back to Zermatt. The views are amazing, and you get to walk through quaint tiny Swiss villages. The best thing though, is being able to stop... More

It's easy to reach the top and slopes are quite good, especially at the top. When you go lower, there are quite narrow red ones which can be a little bit difficult to ski.

as this area is on the "sunny edge" (translation of sunnegga) you will quickly see the snow melting. in winter it is however a nice area - you must get used to a crowded "subway" transportation which does not give you much of mountain feeling - at the beginning.

Once again this gondola was across the road from our hotel which was very handy. The walkway which is a long tunnel is fine at the beginning of the day, but at the end of the day it really is the last thing you want to do especially with skis in hand.
