Great skiing with fantastic views. The slopes are extremely well looked after. The pistes are always in tip top condition.

A small bunch of adventure travel professionals got together to do an accent. It was a great clear sunny day so it could not be anything else but a great day. A easy 4000 meter peak for anyone with reasonable fitness to get some stunning views

Breithorn is both beautiful from Zematt as it is from Champoluc (italy).

Highly recommended for a first experience on a 4000+ m mountain.

Our 24 yr old daughter climbed this mountain with no experience but had a wonderful Zermatt guide. She rented the equipment and did something that she will never forget. You have to be in good physical shape to do this; you are climbing a glacier mountaintop.

Often overlooked, but still mighty and awe-inspiring. You can get close to the top by taking the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise lifts upto Klien Matterhorn. Snow covered all year round, great views and skiing even in summer.
