Zermatt arguable provides the best views in the Alps with the striking Matterhorn overlooking the town. The town itself is car free meaning that you can through the streets more freely. There is plenty of history to take in whilst you are in the resort from the Matterhorn museum to the old style buildings and small cobbled streets.

For the intermediate and adventurous amongst the team the run down from the top of Zermatt into Cervinia is a long red run with a nice Italian feed waiting at the bottom is a must. Recently the lift system has been further upgraded to rival the resorts French counter parts, and with ample choices to eat both on and off the mountain you will feel you need to return to keep on exploring.

If you are looking for a days Heli-Skiing – get dropped at the top of the Monte Rosa (4,250m) for something special.
