Tips from Steven on Zermatt

We found this to be a great ski resort. Nice long slopes including one that's 20km long. A day trip to Italy is heavily recommended. Zermatt is a charming village with lots to do. The snow conditions were good even in April. Pricey but well worth it. SUPER FANTASTICO!

The best ski resort I have ever been to

Amazing and lively. Zermatt is a great resort. All the runs are brilliant and the view of the Matterhorn will blow you away. There is always a lot of snow and not many people.

A unique ski area offering many possibilities, charm, exceptional landscape and guaranteed snow

This ski resort is very different from others I've been to. There are no hotels and apartment door to door, but an authentic sport class mountain village with a cosy atmosphere. The ski area is exceptional, long slopes, a lot of sun, great ski tours and gastronomy cuisine on the slopes.

Great car free healthy atmosphere

If you want to relax in a truly healthy environment, this is the resort for you. You won't need your car all week - what a nice break from driving! Absolutely brilliant. I finally found a ski resort that meets my expectations in respect of the environment. In the evening, we had the choice of several restaurants, with different specialties ... Ski tours were nice too, we really enjoyed the scenery with all the famous mountain peaks of over 4000 meters, absolutely magnificent. We didn't blow our budget either! Will definitely come back!

Charming, relaxing and authentic

Just incredible and endless skiing - we're pretty good skiers and after a week here, we felt like we'd hardly started! Didn't often need to get the ski map out as everything is well signposted. Pretty pedestrian centre with very welcoming atmosphere - spent a lot of time chatting with locals about climbing, skiing etc - they seemed very keen to chat to tourists - which makes a change!

Lovely little pedestrian ski resort with nice, relaxed skiing

Perfect slopes with no nasty surprises, tons of variety and great lifts - hardly any queueing when we were there. Unless you're a really serious skier, don't bother buying the ski passes to ski over into Italy - we just didn't get round to going as there was so much great skiing on the doorstep! Nice relaxed atmosphere on the slopes - maybe the high prices keep the younger crowds away...
