A winter paradise for skiing, somewhere between heaven and earth. The majestic four-thousanders form a magnificent setting dedicated to winter sports. If you like winter, you’ll love Valais! The possibilities are boundless and snow is guaranteed. No great surprise when you realise that Valais is the region in Switzerland that, thanks to the altitude of its ski areas, promises the best snow conditions on its 2000 kilometres of slopes.
Ski resort Zermatt-Matterhorn
Despite its fame, Zermatt retains the charm of a Swiss mountain village. In the car-free resort, guests switch over to electric cars and horse-drawn coaches. This ski area with reliable snow conditions offers 360 km of slopes in the three ski resorts of Rothorn, Gornergrat and Matterhorn – a true glacier paradise, from where it is possible to cross over to the Italian Cervinia/Valtournenche skiing area. Those in search of something different can try their hand at paragliding or off-piste heli-skiing accompanied by an experienced mountain guide. With its many options and environmental consciousness, Zermatt is truly something special!
