Winter in Zermatt

Our tip: the ski and freeride paradise on the Schwarzsee – take the 6-seater chairlift up to the foot of the north face of the Matterhorn. The slopes are amazing here! Alternatively, the Rothorn area gives the best view of the Matterhorn. Then take the Tufternkumme run towards Zermatt.
