    Ski, Ski, Ski

    The slopes at Zermatt, many of which are on a glacier, are long, majestic runs. And the best part is that after a day of skiing, and at the point where your legs are burned out...it is time to ski back down the mountain to the town of Zermatt. This is a long, long, run, partly on mountain trail, partly on snow covered roads....

    Summer skiing is possible thanks the glacier located at the Klein Matterhorn area. Go skiing the morning to have the best snow conditions.

    Winter skiing has several places around Zermatt all interconnected.

    ***Sunegga-Rothorn area
    Easily reachable by a alpine metro. Here you get the best view for The Matterhorn.

    ***Gornergrat - Stockhorn area
    Stockhorn & Hohtalli area is for experimented skiers and a paradise for free riders. Gornergrat area have plenty of snow boulevards and easy slopes for beginners, you could also take the famous Gornegrat train with your ski pass.

    ***Klein Matterhorn - Schwarzsee area
    You could reach the summit of The Klein Matterhorn (3'820m) by a vertiginous cable car. Be prudent at the summit you could feel a little dizzy due to the altitude or the overnight party (for me;). Schwarzsee and Trockener steg area is nice for carving session. You could also ski to Cervinia (Italy) by the Theodulpass.

    One day Swiss ski pass 2009 are CHF 71 for adult. But you could buy cheaper pass for a longer stay.

    Have a great snow/ski/surf fun there!!!

    We had a lot of fun skiing, the runs were not too tough and the runs were long. The mountains are just breathtaking too.

    Once you get to the hill to ski it is a lot of fun, most of the hills were not that tough. They were long and very enjoyable. I think the train/lift ticket/bus pass was about $50 a day.
