Here is just a taste of what there is to do in Zermatt in the winter:
- Skiing and snowboarding: glide over 360 km of ski slopes at all levels of difficulty and experience the borderless pleasure of downhill skiing (in the truest sense of the word, immediately between Switzerland and Italy).- Winter hiking: the gently ascending or descending mountain trails offer magnificent views of the white landscape. Enjoy peace and tranquillity off the slopes – and don't be surprised if a chamois or ibex happens to cross your path.- Snowshoeing: if you can walk in hiking boots, you can hike in snowshoes. Four marked snowshoe trails take you through untouched winter landscapes, far from the slopes and across glistening expanses of snow and beyond.- Ice climbing: Zermatt-born ice climbers Samuel and Simon Anthamatten, Patrick Aufdenblatten and Andreas Steindl are among the best in the world. Put yourself in the capable hands of our natural-born talents.- Ice skating: glide, don't walk: the natural and artificial ice rink in the village centre is open from December to the end of February. Admission is free.- Tobogganing: speeding down the slope on the toboggan run from Rotenboden takes between five and ten minutes. The Gornergrat trains operate up the mountain around every ten minutes. Sledding is permitted on other routes, too – but not on the ski slopes.
WINE & DINE:Combine these wonderful winter activities with culinary delights. Thanks to our Wine & Dine upgrade, you can experience over 11 different restaurants and bars right on the skiing slopes and in the middle of the village.
RECUPERATION:The pool and wellness area at the Mont Cervin Palace extends over 1700 m² - enough space for exercise and relaxation, fun and tranquillity.
