Zermatt is known for year round skiing and many adventure activities. Chalet Zermatt Peak is situated in close proximity to the charming village and has some of.
The main heights are Gornergrat 3, m , the previously mentioned Matterhorn glacier paradise 3, m and the Rothorn 3, m.
All of these provide a breath-taking view of the majestic mountain world around the Matterhorn, with lifts operating days a year. The untouched nature of the valley Lower down the valley, between the towering mountains and the town, beautiful natural sights can be found.
Footpaths carve their way down into the valley; past glistening rivers and untouched nature. More traditional buildings are spread sporadically around the outskirts of Zermatt around which you can find the best restaurants the region has to offer. The chef came out to meet us personally on our visit, and the whole meal tingled our tastebuds and left us keen for more local flavours.
The guns are laser-based and feature no ammunition, making them lighter and more accessible for those new to the hobby. The laser sensors detect whether your shot would have hit and the scoreboard and gun gives appropriate feedback based on hits and misses.
We played a few rounds, and are proud to say the winner was one of our directors. There are plenty of other activities that can host groups of all sizes in the region, and another that we are keen to try another time is fly fishing July-September. Kirk offers clients the opportunity to privately fly fish the most exclusive lake in the Swiss Alps, with the iconic Matterhorn as a backdrop.
This is particularly popular amongst businessmen, who have been known to host meetings during the activity.
Unwinding in the designer alpine chalets As we retreated further away from the glorious Matterhorn, we came to the chalets at the opposite end of the valley. Chalet Grace is full of personality and the personal touches to interior design are hard to miss. The charming games room was decorated with signed movie posters from Martin Scorsese, David Finch and Ridley Scott, and hosted a pool table, roulette table and a stunning cinema room.
The wellness facilities, as with the other chalets, featured a hand-crafted sauna, a range of showers, a hot Jacuzzi which is perfect for spending time on the balcony during the colder nights and fitness machines.
The topography of the mountain and the valley tends to keep the Rothorn clear and sunny, even when Zermatt is submerged in cloud. This cable car and the newer 4-seat chairlift Sunnegga-Findeln-Breitboden provide connections between Sunnegga and Gornergrat.
Fully Catered, Sleeps 10-13
With few steep slopes, this mountain is often used to train younger skiers. Gornergrat[ edit ] Gornergrat railway station, 3, m The Gornergrat is served by the Gornergrat railway , a minute ride to the Gornergrat peak 3, m , via Riffelalp, Rotenboden and Riffelberg, with limited stops at Findelbach and Landtunnel just above Zermatt.
At the summit, the hotel and restaurant have been refurbished and accommodate a shopping centre. Riffelalp station is linked to Riffelalp Resort by a short tramway line named Riffelalptram.
This final lift serves a freeride area but can be unreliable as this mountainside requires good snow cover to be skiable.
The lifts in this area generally open for the season in late February or early March - cablecar is now permanently closed, with no replacement lift planned. From here there is access to Schwarzsee via a gondola to the right, a cable car that leads on to the Trockener Steg midstation and then on to the Klein Matterhorn , and a new gondola, opened on 18 December , links Furi to Riffelberg on the Gornergrat mountain.
This lift addresses one of the most persistent criticisms of Zermatt: that it is very difficult to ski the two sides of the valley without a tiresome trek through Zermatt between the Gornergratbahn and the Matterhorn Express at opposite ends of the town.

Testa Grigia at the top of the Theodul Pass serves as a connection to the Italian ski-resorts of Cervinia and Valtournenche. From the Swiss side it is only reachable by skilift, but from the Italian side by a chairlift and by a cablecar.
In March it was announced that a new lift - the 'Alpine Crossing' - will connect Testa Grigia and Klein Matterhorn from spring Zermatt is marketed as an all year skiing resort, with summer skiing limited to the Theodul Glacier behind the Klein Matterhorn. Whilst strictly true, during the off season in May and June there will only tend to be one or two runs open, and the main glacier area does not open until July.

The wellness facilities, as with the other chalets, featured a hand-crafted sauna, a range of showers, a hot Jacuzzi which is perfect for spending time on the balcony during the colder nights and fitness machines.
The course was 20 kilometres 12 miles long and featured a 2, metres 7, feet descent.
