Hike and Ski in Zermatt, Switzerland


Zermatt is a skier's paradise and a haven for all people who enjoy outdoor adventures. Many people travel to Zermatt to see or climb the Matterhorn, a favorite slope of many skiers. It has a magnetic pull for advanced skiers or those who want to test out their skill, although it is sometimes treacherous. The climb is well worth it, and at the top, you will be able to see spectacular views of the snow-capped mountains and descend quickly after spending the night on the mountaintop. Mountain guides are available to help you navigate the mountain.

There are some other interesting peaks in Zermatt aside from the Matterhorn. Monte Rosa is one of the highest peaks in Switzerland, and hiking this area requires that you be an experienced climber and in peak physical form. The Briethorn is by far the easiest mountain to climb, and you can follow the trail without climbing in approximately two hours of walking. The ski resorts are very accommodating, although because of the altitude and the fact that there are no gasoline-powered automobiles permitted in the city, the cost of staying in Zermatt is fairly exorbitant.
