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 kilometres of runs for skiing in Zermatt and the nearby Cervinia in Italy. During a ski holiday in Zermatt interesting freeride slopes, heli-skiing and the Gravity Park ensure the "cracks" amongst us have a fun winter. Ski clubs introduce children and beginners to the world of skiing.

      Reduce ski pass price if you are opening less than 50% of the mountain. Only then will people think they are not...
