Skiing and Snowboarding
Boasting some of the highest mountains in Europe, Zermatt offers skiing and snowboarding 365 days a year. With 360km of pistes and long runs down to the village, the Zermatt ski area is an endless alpine playground. The ski area is situated right on the Italian border and visitors also have the luxury of exploring neighbouring Cervinia and Val Tournenche.
For Beginners there are a number of broad, safe ski areas and three dedicated ski lifts and practice pistes where you can practice your skills and build your confidence. Get excited knowing that once you’re comfortable to get out of the beginner areas, there’s endless terrain to sink your edges into.
For Intermediate skiiers and snowboarders the long, varied runs are ideal for gaining speed and practicing your technique. Whether you’re seeking steep, open runs or prefer wooded areas to work on tight, sharp turns; there’s terrain to suit.
Advanced skiiers and snowboarders often choose Zermatt for the technical terrain on offer. Moguls, chutes, wooded valleys, off-piste and glacier terrain is all available across Zermatt’s vast ski area.
There is an abundance of off-piste areas ready for exploration for those who know where to go. If you aren’t familiar with the area we can organise a ski guide who can show you the best powder fields and secret spots on the mountain.
For those into freestyle the Zermatt snowpark offers an impressive lineup of kickers, boxes, rails, jibs, tables and also has a half-pipe open for most of the year. The features within the snowpark range from beginner to advanced, so if you’ve always wanted to see what it feels like to get some altitude at altitude, Zermatt snowpark will have you covered.
