Ed Leighs Money Savings Tips whilst visiting Zermatt
What's it like at Zermatt resort?
Zermatt, under the shadow of the Matterhorn, is one of Europe's best ski areas. Linked to Cervinia, just over the border in Italy, Zermatt offers over 250km of pistes. Despite 52 lifts, there is often a bit of a queue to get up the mountain in the morning. Once there you will be spoiled for choice whatever your ability. Throw in a world class terrain park and pipe and you realise Zermatt is truly a top resort. Off the piste, Zermatt is traditional, slightly snobby and expensive. Stay in one of the many chalets on the outskirts to save cash for the excellent restaurants in town. Nightlife is also very good.

Visitor Reviews of Zermatt
Julian Davis from Switzerland writes:
I have read many glowing reports about Zermatt, focussing on the quality of the pistes, the scenery and the lift systems. Whilst I really enjoyed skiing here a couple of downsides are not mentioned. First, it takes a long time to access the pistes via bus and then lift system can take up to an hour. If you are an average intermediate then skiing back to resort is not an option so the runs are heavily limited. Secondly, in early season until end Jan the lifts close around 3.30 pm, which means a short day, making catching the last lift to the top a real necessity. I would recommend it with these caveats but go with open eyes so as not to be short changed.
