Skiing in ZERMATT

Below are some personal opinions on skiing in Zermatt. These are based on experiences over several years. However, change is inevitable and personal preferences and opinions vary, so no responsibility can be accepted.

Map of Lifts & Pistes, times and prices

Includes Cervinia/Valtournenche. This links to the official resort pages for lifts and piste maps, showing which are open in real time, aswell as price and timetable info.


Loads of webcams giving great views of the village, the Matterhorn and various spots around the pistes.

Ski Areas - an overview

The skiing is divided into 3 main areas. - for more more detail on each area click on the area heading:

Sunnegga / Rothorn

The north-easternmost area of the Zermatt ski region, Rothorn-Sunnegga has more runs below the tree line than other areas and features a sunny "plateau" between Blauherd and Sunnegga, the legendary restaurants and picturesque chalets of Findeln and superb all round views and long descents from the summit at Rothorn itself. more....


The Gornergrat area has varied skiing, from gentle blues on its high sunny plateau with stunning views to the legendary Triftji bumps and long off piste descents from Hohtalli and Stockhorn. There are also beginners slopes and a toboggan run above Riffelberg. more....

Matterhorn - Schwarzsee

The highest runs in Europe, amazing views, more than 2 vertical kilometres of descent without needing a lift, long wide glacier runs, some entertaining moguls and a "gravity park" with half pipe - this area has it all. more....

Cervinia - Valtournenche (Italy)

On the south side of the Matterhorn, you need an "international" ski pass to head over the border into Italy for wide open south facing motorway skiing and some long runs into the valley. more....

Ski Rental

There are several excellent rental outlets. The prices are pretty similar so its usually a question of convenience and personal preference as to which one you choose. We love Julen Sport in the middle of the village where the service and equipment from Martin and his team are first class. If your accomodation is away from the lifts. particularly in the Winkelmatten area of the village another good option is to hire from Dorsaz Sport by the Matterhorn Express lift station where you can leave your skis and boots at the end of the day.
