SWITZERLAND’S HIGHEST SKI resort, Zermatt, is home to the highest mountains in the Alpine mountain range. Located between Zermatt and Breuil-Cervinia at an altitude of around 12,740 feet, it’s the highest ski area in the country. It’s not only the favorite of Swiss or European visitors, but is also an international skier’s paradise. If you’re a more experienced skier, Zermatt will satisfy you with its long downhill runs, miles of tracks and great snow conditions. For excursions, the best place to visit is the Matterhorn. It is known as the jewel of the Swiss Alps. You should also visit the Gornergrat: there is an observation platform where you can see the entire Matterhorn. The Rothorn also should not be missed. It’s open 365 days a year and summer skiing is also available.
