Luxury Ski Holidays Zermatt
Zermatt has established itself as one of the most renowned world-class resorts in the Alps. Set at the foot of the iconic Matterhorn, the picturesque Swiss resort is made up of rustic chalets, designer shops and luxury ski hotels. Centred around the church of St Mauritius, the village is car-free and still retains its Alpine charm.
Zermatt has 200km of well-groomed pistes and is linked to the Italian resort of Cervinia, which adds another 160km of accessible pistes. Both the resorts are high in altitude, making them snow sure throughout the season.
The 200km of pistes cater to beginners, families, intermediates and experts. Beginners can learn on the green runs by the Gornergrat and Riffelberg chairlifts, while steeper red runs are accessible around the Trockener Steg gondola station.

There is a 25-metre pool, spa, gym, squash court as well as an indoor tennis court.
The sleek and minimalist five-star Omnia boutique hotel has floor-to-ceiling windows that offer beautiful views over the surrounding mountains. The resident chef creates contemporary dishes with authentic flavours and there is a wellness centre with a heated pool that is both indoor and outdoor.
