Ski area Zermatt

With the lift pass "Zermatt-Täsch" you can ski on over 200 km of fine pistes in the ski region Zermatt-Matterhorn, which also comprises 34 modern lift systems. It's all about superlatives in this marvellous area: at an altitude of approx. 4,000 m, the large Matterhorn glacier paradise is the highest ski area in the Alps. The highest lift at Klein Matterhorn takes you up to 3,883 m and thus to the highest mountain station in Europe. From up here you have a fantastic panorama over 38 Alpine giants and 14 glaciers. The glacier ski area Zermatt-Matterhon is one of the most popular ski resorts in Switzerland, not only because of its diversity and snow-certainty all year long. The longest slope as a total length of 25 km, and with blue, red and especially many black pistes every skier - regardless of their personal taste and level - can find their preferred piste. All in all you can look forward to seemingly endless kilometres of piste, all of them with a view of the characteristic Matterhorn summit.

The lift pass "International" also gives you access to the Italian Cervinia, giving you an extension to altogether 360 km of pistes (see region). If you're looking for the ultimate round trip of all ski mountains in the region we recommend trying the Matterhorn Ski Safari. On two different routes (Safari Silver and Safari Gold) you can ski on fantastic slopes all day without taking the same lift twice. Starting at Rothorn you can ski vie Riffelberg, Theodul glacier, Trockener Steg, Matterhorn glacier paradise, Breuil-Cervinia, Testa Grigia and, after all, back to Zermatt via Stafelalp.

As if that much choice of piste wasn't enough, the region offers further specials, such as e.g. the "slow slopes". All skiers are expected to ski slow and controlled on these specially signed pistes, making for a perfect area for careful skiers and wallowers who are not looking for the thrill of speed. Several snow parks and a total of 36 km secured off-piste tracks for experienced free riders round off the diverse offer at Matterhorn.

If you are accommodated in Täsch, you can use the shuttle train that runs between Zermatt and Täsch, for free. Your lift pass "Zermatt-Täsch" then counts as a valid train ticket.
