POPULAR PISTES AND SKI ROUTES IN ZERMATT
Personal recommendations from our staff
The run from Klein Matterhorn to Cervinia is a clear recommendation. With a descent time of about 30 minutes, it is one of the longest pistes in the Alps. If you are looking for wider pistes, you will find what you are looking for on the downhill run at Trockenen Steg. On the Rothorn you will also get your money's worth with perfect pistes. There, the descent runs along the long Kumme to the Patrullarve. An absolute must for experienced skiers.
An additional recommendation is the train ride to Gornergrat to be able to ski the beautiful slopes there. The ride offers a great experience with views of the Matterhorn and countless other mountains around Zermatt. Bayard's main shop is also located next to the Gornergrat valley station. The very varied area itself is mainly suitable for advanced skiers. As the Gornergrat lies between Sunnegga / Rothorn and Trockener Steg / Klein Matterhorn, all the pistes are connected there and you have the choice of which run you want to tackle.
