Zermatt is a firm favourite with our Ski Club Members, which is no surprise considering it is widely regarded as one of the best ski resorts in Europe, if not the world. Thanks to its endless on and off piste terrain, phenomenal snow record, charming village and astounding scenery, Zermatt is a desirable destination for skiers of all abilities.  

The wide variety of runs that can be found across the mountain mean that you will be kept busy skiing all week, often without seeing the same run twice. For Freshtrackers who wish to explore a little further afield, Zermatt provides access to extensive off piste terrain, much of which is lift accessible. 

Holiday price includes: 7 nights half board, 4* hotel, twin share, Swiss Rail ticket, 3 days with mountain guides, Ski Club Leader
Lift price information: Six day standard adult lift pass price guide CHF380 (Zermatt/ Cervinia)

ON SNOW EXPERIENCE

You will spend three full days with a mountain guide and three full days with your Ski Club Leader. Whilst in resort, why not try a day’s heli skiing if conditions allow? This will be payable locally.

RESORT

The town started life as a simple farming village, developing into a mountaineering centre in the 19th century and becoming a winter resort in the late 1920's and early 1930's. Summer is still as big as winter here, though despite its growth it has retained its traditional charm, complete with buildings of timber, stone and slate. Catering to it's generally affluent clientele, there are a great range of après options, charming boutiques, elegant restaurants and luxury hotels. The village is car-free, but not traffic-free – it's not uncommon to spot horse-drawn carriages transporting guests around the quaint streets, alongside electric buggies operating either as hotel shuttles or as public taxis.

Zermatt offers some of the most impressive skiing in the world, stretching from 1,620m to a lofty 3,882m. Set against the backdrop of the awe-inspiring Matterhorn, alongside a total of 38 peaks rising over 4000m, it offers some of the most visually striking skiing in the world. On snow, 360km of slopes provide some of the most extensive intermediate and advanced terrain in Europe, and this is before you even take into account the off piste options. Skiing takes place across several areas: Rothorn, Gornergrat, Matterhorn Glacier Paradise and Schwarzsee, all accessed by highly efficient lift systems including the famous Gornergrat mountain railway. 

 

ACCOMMODATION

You will be staying in the Alpen Resort hotel, where the Gornergrat Railway is just moments away. The 4* Best Western hotel offers large spa facilities including swimming pools, a sauna and steam bath which are perfect to heal any aching bodies after a long day chasing powder. The restaurant serves traditional Swiss cuisine, often with live music in the evenings. The rooms are recently renovated with modern fittings, while the communal areas follow a more traditional Swiss style.
