At least in this case, the reputation is entirely justified. The postcard is a typical Swiss alpine village, surrounded by an impressive mountain landscape with more than 30 peaks over 4,000 meters. Including the Matterhorn, possibly the most beautiful mountain in the world. 360 kilometers of ski slopes await winter sports enthusiasts in Switzerland, as well as in the Italian side of the Matterhorn, where the mountain is called the Cervino. Zermatt has 3 different ski areas, fully connected in altitude but accessed from three different bases from the village. Anyone who has not been in the last 5 years in Zermatt will be surprised because the entire domain was formerly fragmented, but now the 3 zones inter-connect perfectly. Sunegga is accessed by a modern underground funicular located about 5 minutes walk from the train station. Skiing here is between 2,000 and 3,100 meters in sunny slopes of all levels. From here you can access via two different points (Gant and Findeln) the second area, called Gornergrat. It offers intermediate and expert slopes between 2,200 and 3,400 meters. This area is also accessed from the center of Zermatt with a train that although slow (takes about 40 min.) is famous worldwide because of the extraordinary alpine panoramas that can be seen along the way . From Gornegrat is possible to connect to the third zone (Klein Matterhorn cable car) via Furi-Riffelberg. Access from Zermatt village to Klein Matterhorn is possible with a cable-car departing from one end of town (15 min. Walk from the center, there are ski bus). Klein Matterhorn is the highest areas of Zermatt, with the most attractive and challenging tracks and the link to the Italian resort of Cervinia. The slopes here range from 1,600 to 3,800 meters. Throughout the year, thousands of tourists take these cable cars to enjoy incredible views of the Matterhorn (Cervino) and glacier and other peaks, so in Zermatt going up is almost (but only almost) as exciting as going down. The summer ski area on the glacier Theodul offers 21 kilometers of pistes with guaranteed snow. In other words: Zermatt offers skking 365 days per year. The village of Zermatt is simply wonderful and an attraction in itself, with beautiful typical Swiss mountain houses and surrounded by a spectacular and unique mountain landscape. Zermatt is a pedestrian village, comfortably accessed by train. Once in Zermatt people walk or take a cab or a small electric taxis carrying guests' luggage through the narrow streets to the hotels and apartments. Zermatt is one of the pioneers of sustainability. Many businesses (hotels, restaurants, ski ...) pay attention for decades to the responsible use of resources such as water, electricity, etc.. A top quality cuisine awaits guests both in the hotels and mountain restaurants (20 restaurants sum up a total of 248 points Gault Millau). Many of the hotels and restaurants of Zermatt are family owned and provide customers with high quality and tradition (up to 80% of customers repeating each year). But there are also new hotels with a chic-alpine style architecture that combines perfectly stone, glass and, often, old wood. For those who, in addition to rest and sports, also enjoy shopping, we recommend a leisurely stroll along the Bahnhofstrasse. Overall Zermatt has après-ski and lots of choice and places to choose from. The party starts at the bottom of the Klein Matterhorn cable cars with many crowded bars and live music. The party goes later to the many bars downtown and main street is filled with people walking. Later on there are more than a dozen pubs and nightclubs with lots of atmosphere for people of all ages. Zermatt is not only a ski resort but a year-round tourist destination, so it offers many possibilities. Almost all panoramic peaks and the excellent restaurants and mountain huts are comfortably accessible for non-skiers. In the center there are many restaurants and shops and is ideal to stroll. There are many activities, including helicopter flights or a visit to the Alpine Museum. In addition there is curling, skating, sauna, indoor pool, gym, squash, golf indoor, cinema, etc. Most active guests have 30 km of marked trails in the snow, a mile-long toboggan run and a couple of cross-country skiing tracks tracks (9 km in total).
