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).

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.
