Ski area on the Breithorn plateau, 3,900 metres
Zermatt is known throughout the world for its skiing, especially Triftji for its moguls. The high altitude results in consistent skiing continuously throughout the summer.
Skiing in Zermatt is split up into four areas; Sunnegga, Gornergrat, Klein Matterhorn and Schwarzsee. There is also a connection to Cervinia and Valtournenche in Italy. Cervinia lies at 2,006 m (6,581 ft) above sea level, at the foot of the Matterhorn (in Italian, Monte Cervino; in French, Mont Cervin), in a valley surrounded by high, glaciated mountains and the sheer rock face of the Jumeaux. It shares a ski area with Zermatt in Switzerland. Some of the runs are very long, the longest stretches 22 km from the Klein Matterhorn (in French, Petit Cervin, in Italian Piccolo Cervino ) in Switzerland down to Valtournenche in Italy. We organise trips from/to both Resorts, enjoying skiing from one Country to another and to also taste both country’s delicious traditional food and drink.
