Zermatt in Winter

For thrill-seekers and sports enthusiasts, Zermatt has four dynamic and unique ski areas offering a challenge to all levels of skiers and snowboarders, with the added opportunity to cross the border and spend the day in Italy. Fine dining on the slopes is guaranteed with world-famous Michelin-star restaurants open throughout the season and après ski bars both on the slopes and back in the village.

For those looking for something a little different, winter hiking and snow-shoeing will give you the chance to take in breathtaking panoramic views at your own pace, or alternatively, for a birds eye view of the mountains and a serene flight above the village, try paragliding. For the very adventurous it’s hard to beat the rush of heli-skiing with the lure of untouched powder snow off-piste.
