This event is in the past.
Zermatt is a car-free ski resort at the foot of Switzerland's most famous mountain, the Matterhorn. This attractive blend of Alpine village and sophisticated holiday destination boasts a varied offering, including a modern lift system, comfortable hotels, practical holiday apartments and friendly hosts. The skiing area stretches from 1,620 to 3,882m. The many mountain trains based here provide access to hundreds of kilometers of runs for skiing in Zermatt and the nearby Cervinia in Italy.
Zermatt, the jewel in Switzerland’s crown, is one of the world’s best ski resorts and has a lot going for it besides the Matterhorn, that unique and very prominent iconic asset with which the resort has earned worldwide recognition.
Zermatt is about atmosphere - the old world charm of a farming and mountaineering village long before winter sports were imagined, a charm which seeps out of the ancient clutter of simple alpine timber, stone and slate buildings and which draws you toward the warm glow of its long narrow high street with its lights glistening in the night, enticing you to wander window shopping or to drop into its many cafes, bars and restaurants. All this set tightly nestled between the steep mountain ridges at the top of the Matter valley.
