My earlier post was deleted by TripAdvisor, probably because I made a referral. We are skiing in Zermatt for a week in March and considering hiring a licensed guide for off-piste and general advice to get the most out of our trip. We do not need ski instructors. We are a family of 3 who ski 30+/days/year, consider ourselves advanced/expert skiers and are in decent shape. Our 12 year old daughter is a competitive freestyle skier and we are starting to struggle to keep up with her. However her endurance can lag off-piste, but she's always pulled trough and said she'd love to do it again. She is 2 years older and stronger this time around. Is the off-piste experience in Zermatt as wonderful as Chamonix? Is there more than enough on-piste adventure in Zermatt to make a guide not necassary to thoroughly enjoy the area?
