High peaks and soft valleys, steep slopes and snow covered paths: during winter season the region around the Matterhorn, the Alps’ most iconic mountain, becomes the winter sport destination number one. Taking one of the Zermatt ski lifts or cable cars, winter enthusiasts can discover all the landscape’s fascinating facets and enjoy the rush of a steep descent on skis.

Even during summer months the Matterhorn glistens white and snowy in the bright sunlight, but in winter the whole region snows over turning it into a winter sport paradise with 360 kilometres of perfectly prepared ski slopes.
