Zermatt: Picturesque Pinnacle of Luxury
One of the most attractive ski resorts to grace the Alpine region – in fact any mountain range – Zermatt boasts an unrivalled beauty, as well as benefitting from an extensive network of pistes to suit all abilities.
Alongside divine mountain dining and lavish luxury accommodation, the ski area attracts clientele from across the globe, with Kings Avenue offering all of the top chalets in the area.
Preserving the traditional character of a Swiss mountain village, few resorts share the charm of this elevated idyll. At its heart, a pedestrianised town centre of cobbled streets and ‘chocolate box chalets’ – there is an ease to Zermatt life that relaxes like no other.
multiple peaks over 4,000m – plus the imperious matterhorn
Under the watchful summit of the iconic Matterhorn, which presides over a further 38 peaks that all sit above 4,000m, Zermatt is as visually arresting a landscape as one could wish for.
With over 183km of skiable terrain, it is little wonder the resort is considered among the best in the world; the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise – at 3,883m – is perhaps the most iconic descent of any European ski resort.
A haven for the discreet
Despite its unbridled allure, Zermatt has retained its serenity resulting in an altogether more discrete setting in which to spend a week’s skiing.
