Zermatt overview

Resort

On the Italian border of the canton of Valais in the west of Switzerland, at the end of the 30 km-long Nikolaital, lies Zermatt, the village at the foot of the Matterhorn, the most photographed mountain in the world. Zermatt epitomizes their image of Switzerland: high-alpine, awe-inspiring and original. Almost one-third of the 4,000-metre mountains in the Alps are grouped around this word-famous health resort, which has been visited by mountaineers from all around the world since the first successful ascent of the Matterhorn in 1865. The hotels and restaurants are world-class, and the ski area is not only the highest in the Alps – it is also one of the best developed and most convenient in the world, ensuring thrilling sporting experiences on the steepest slopes in the world – and that 365 days a year. The climate is of an excellent quality: with 300 sunny days a year, there is less rainfall than anywhere else in Switzerland. The air in Zermatt is clear, dry and clean, because, since 1947, only electric cars without a combustion engine are allowed to operate in the village.


Zermatt - the "Mountain Mecca" has...
 
29 mountains soaring over 4000m (13,100ft)
nine of the ten highest mountains in Europe
the highest (ski) lift in Europe - Klein Matterhorn (Gobba di Rollin) 3899m (12,830ft)
the largest summer skiing area in the Alps (all year 9 ski lifts / 25 km runs)
the longest winter skiing season in Europe (late November to early May)
the longest consistently open ski run in Europe (Klein Matterhorn to Zermatt 13 Km - open late November to mid April)



Open lifts: Cervinia, Valtournenche
