Zermatt lies at the foot of the Matterhorn. This picturesque alpine town is a car-free zone,helping to preserve its original character. 

Home to the highest observation deck in the Alps with a 360-degree panorama across France and Italy overlooking 38 4000m+ peaks and 14 glaciers, Zermatt is undoubtedly one of Switzerland's best winter resorts. Snowboarders and freestylers are able to hone their skills in the Snowpark Zermatt in which Olympic hopefuls also train.

With 200km of pistes, a slick lift system, extensive off-pistes and outstanding mountain restaurants, Zermatt’s glacier is open all year round for skiing and snowboarding (weather permitting, of course).
