Zermatt, Switzerland – A Great Ski Experience
You must experience Zermatt, Switzerland. Magnificent scenery, loads of ski village charm, great cuisine and more. An exceptional location for an exceptional ski vacation. Don’t miss this opportunity to ski in Zermatt, Switzerland.
Ski connoisseurs like the fact that there are no gasoline-powered cars in the village of Zermatt. Or maybe it’s the tiny village and its traditional Swiss architecture that’s so attractive to vacationing skiers. Twenty-eight mountains, including the famous and spectacular Matterhorn, stretching as high as 4,478 meters (14,687 feet), surround Zermatt.
The three skiing mountains here are above 3,100 meters (10,200 feet) and are accessible not by the average ski lift, but numerous trams and gondolas. Plus, some trails stretch for over seven miles. And it’s hard to find a ski area that has a longer season–you can ski here all year long.
Hotel Perren was built between 1937 and 1939 by Hermann and Alfred Perren. It has been added onto over the years and is now a 115-bed hotel. The “Rothornstube,” the hotel’s rustic a la carte restaurant, was added in 1982 and serves gourmet Swiss cuisine (known especially for its fondue). The hotel is now owned and operated by the Bregy-Biner family.
