When it's still winter on the glacier

Sunshine skiing at its best in the springtime

Clouds Clouds Clouds

The sap is rising in the Matterhorn Ski Paradise, even though wintry conditions still prevail. Perfectly groomed slopes await you right into the merry month of May at the foot of the Matterhorn. The extra dose of sunshine that comes with it is a free bonus. 

Come to Zermatt and let the sun revitalize you. Get your first healthy tan of the year (don’t forget your sunscreen) and cut your tracks in beautifully mild conditions and on pleasantly quiet slopes.

Your place in the sun is also assured on the terraces of the many mountain restaurants. The Swiss delights taste twice as nice when it’s T-shirt weather. And with the Matterhorn as a backdrop, most terraces are the perfect spot to take a selfie.

Only in spring

Coming to Zermatt for skiing means looking forward to countless sun-filled moments. As the temperatures rise so do the number of opportunities to enjoy activities away from the slopes. When the snow melts lower down the mountain it’s time to swap your ski boots for hiking shoes and your snowboard for a mountain bike. Or how about an afternoon round of golf?

Another reason for spring cheer: Zermatt Bergbahnen offers very tempting off-season fares at this time of year. The prospects for a pleasurable springtime skiing experience are sunny indeed!
