RECOMMENDATIONS FOR IMPRESSIVE SKI TOURS IN THE SURROUNDING AREA
Personal recommendations from our staff
A popular tour starts in Zermatt and takes 3 hours to Schwarzsee. The tour requires a certain amount of stamina and endurance. After arriving, however, a fantastic view stretches out before you, which is unparalleled. Especially if you want to go on your tour undisturbed and avoid too many winter sports enthusiasts, we recommend starting the tour early in the morning at around 08:00.
Another alternative is a ski tour to the Rothorn, which can also be started from Zermatt. This tour is a very special experience, as it is particularly challenging with 1,400 metres of altitude to climb. As a reward for the exertions of the ascent, a breathtaking view of Zermatt awaits you at the end. A clear recommendation from Bayard!

COMBINATION OF PISTE, POWDER AND TOUR
The ultimate adventure awaits at the Schwarztor
The Schwarztor offers the most varied tour around Zermatt. Here, pistes, powder passages and the classic ski tour come together. The result is an unforgettable experience that will be remembered long after you have mastered it. If you want to tackle this adventure, we recommend that you be accompanied by a ski instructor or mountain guide. As part of the tour involves traversing the glacier there, you will always be safe and well advised.
If you are looking for a more leisurely tour, we can recommend the Riffelalp. This tour leads via the Riffelberg up to the Gornergrat. From there, you can decide for yourself whether you want to ski down on a paved and groomed slope or in deep snow off the beaten track. Breathtaking views are offered both on the ascent and the descent.
