Visitor Reviews of Zermatt

adambrau from United States writes:

Zermatt is my favorite place in the world; I acknowledge I am biased. Skiing bumps on the Stockhorn, you will be virtually alone. If you get up early the on-piste grooming is phenomenal, your skis melt into the butter corduroy. Beautiful alpine village framed by the Matterhorn - even Disney (gulp) only imitated this stunning alpine landmark. Zermatt is tucked away in one of the furthest Swiss valleys, but you can take the train from Zurich in 3.5 hours and the scenery from Visp to the Zmatt Bahnhoff never fails to disappoint. Zermatt might not rank along Val d'Isere or Aspen in terms of expert skiing, but it posses a magical place in my heart. Once you know it like the back of your hand, all the cons that other people have listed below seem baseless. Even if my European friends complain it is too far for a long weekend, I would almost rather be alone in Zermatt than enjoy their company. Obviously, a subjective topic, but I am a disciple. Nothing matches the feeling of getting the first lift up the mountain, even if you only had two hours sleep the night before. Or better eight!
