Skiing starts at 3880 m here, after a good meal in the sunny restaurant, high Alps, glaciers, mountains and rocks all around, of course the Matterhorn near by, and best snow conditions...!

Seeing the Matterhorn from Zermatt is a good start. Taking the cable car all the way to Klein Matterhorn completes the view for the non-hikers. The view is well worth the journey. You also get to see the other sides of the Matterhorn.

fantastic viewing platform. There is a restaurant and other facilities too. In the middle of the walkway through the mountain they also show ski movies. A must if you're in Cervinia or in Zermatt.

Klein Matterhorn is a wonderful way to see all the mountains and get another vantage point of the Matterhorn. The ice palace is fun to wander through. The cafe has basic foods but lovely big windows so you can see the skiers setting out. Expensive to get up to the top but worth it

We went up to the klein Matterhorn, to have a good look at the big Matterhorn. The Gondola will bring you there from Zermatt. But be aware, up there on almost 4000 m it's really very very cold and windy!! But it's worth the cold, the view is magnificent!!

Quite expensive cablecar trip but worth every penny. When you visit Zermatt this is a must to do. Cablecar is not running during strong winds.

View the highest peaks in Switzerland which are stunning on a clear day. The Matterhorn was great. Also, inside the glacier there are many ice sculptures and a unique experience.

The cable car to get up there is quite expensive but at the top there is a ski restaurant that you can get anything you need in. The view is incredible to see, and the air is thin so headaches are to be expected. you need to keep yourself hydrated and well-fed. Great for skiing.
