Top-class skiing under a magical mountain
Discover this enchanting corner of Switzerland with a stay in one of our luxury ski chalets in Zermatt. Take in the sweeping views from the balcony of Chalet Castor, which sits high above the main Matterhorn Express lift. This stylish property offers enough comfort to make you feel at home, along with luxurious touches like a bubbling outdoor hot tub. Book three-bedroom Chalet Zoro if you want to be in the centre of town, as it’s close to the Sunnegga lift. From pretty much every one of our Zermatt ski chalets and hotels, you’ll have gorgeous views of the village and the mighty Matterhorn.
Zermatt instantly casts its spell once you get your first glimpse of the Matterhorn and its jagged peak. This exquisitely pretty village epitomises all that is expected of a skier’s destination in Switzerland, with its high-altitude, snow-sure slopes. This car-free chocolate-box resort offers skiing for all levels and some of the best heli-skiing possibilities in Europe.
Zermatt features 250 kilometres of pistes and one of the highest ski pistes in the Alps at a sky-hugging 3,820 metres. It really will take your breath away once you take Europe’s highest mountain lift, as the air is noticeably thinner. Encircled by nine out of the ten highest mountains in Europe, Zermatt enjoys one of the longest ski seasons in the Alps. You’re guaranteed excellent snow cover from the end of November through to the end of April. If you can drag yourself away from the skiing, stroll along the main street, Bahnhofstrasse, and check out the excellent selection of cosy restaurants and high-end eateries. Head to the mountain restaurants for some of the best dining in Switzerland.
