Be prepared for wind and snow, even in July/August.

We hiked to the top of the Breithorn as part of our training for the Matterhorn in July 2015. The wind was so strong at the top that we could not stand-up. It was a good climb... read more

Full report under Breithorn hotel. Definitely recommended in Champoluc for skiers but 10 minute walk to the nearest lift on a main road and issues with locker keys if not a couple.

This was the easiest snow climb we ever did. Yet, you need to know basic mountaineering skills, and be comfortable walking in crampons (depending on snow conditions you may not need them). You better be well acclimatized when you climb Breithorn, it is quite high. Easy access from Kline Matterhorn (gondola station). Round trip to the summit is about 2-3... More

The Breithorn is one of the few mountains higher than 4000m suitable for non-mountaineers. It is easy "climb" that means no climbing at all: you can walk up to the top. Your mountain guide provides all the equipment like grampons, harness, etc. Klein Matterhorn is the starting point of the hillwalk. First you cross a glacier the you walk uphill.... More

We ate our first meal here upon arrival of fresh pasta. It was a small portion but stunningly good. We decided to go back and have a full meal starting with cocktails. We had the Gin Martini (in/out) and the Bloody Mary and both were superb; strong, clean and neverending! Without going into detail of each course (soup, grilled veg,... More

Take the cable car up to Klein Matterhorn -3800 mtrs approx and you can walk(taking care to avoid crevasses) in an arc to the left and you are at the foot of a lovely snow climb to the nicest gentle summit overlooking the Visp valley with Zermatt at its head. Have climbed up here several times.Go only in the recognised... More
