Zermatt offers excellent conditions throughout a long season. Skiing is well under way by early December and even late November due to high altitude glacial terrain around 4000m. As the season progresses, lower runs offer great conditions too and the skiing below 2000m is appealing when it gets really cold. By April when other resorts can be knee deep in slush, Zermatt will have the best conditions in the Alps. Check out the Zermatt Unplugged music festival in April too.
To start planning your holiday to Cervo Mountain Resort
The Cervo Mountain Resort in Zermatt is a boutique hotel situated on a terrace above the village, with spectacular views of the Matterhorn. Cosy and relaxed, it's ideal for those looking for a charming and chic place to stay in this lively resort.
Overlooking the village, Cervo Mountain Resort is a lovely spot in which to take in the delights of Zermatt. With a central chalet housing the bar, lounge and restaurant, the hotel has five separate chalets of between five to eleven rooms, which can be taken separately or as a whole. For privacy and exclusivity, the Cervo's Owners Lodge is a cosy retreat sleeping up to six people, and is ideal for special occasions or family groups, where meals can be taken either in the chalet or in the restaurant. With panoramic windows, a private terrace with views of the Matterhorn and an outdoor whirlpool, it's one of Zermatt's secret gems.
The central chalet is the hub of the hotel with a buzzing bar and lounge, lit by candles,and great for socialising after a fulfilling day in the mountains.

The resort itself lies at an altitude of 1620 meters at the foot of the world-renowned Matterhorn and surrounded by an additional 38 majestic peaks. Due to its southerly location, Zermatt shares part of its border with Italy and thus enjoys a mild climate with extended periods of sunshine. Although a beautiful and internationally renowned spot with numerous hotels, restaurants, bars and elegant shops, Zermatt has never lost any of its village charm and both in summer and winter remains an ideal spot for an active, refreshing or relaxing vacation.

The village itself is a pleasure to explore, whether on foot or in a horse-drawn carriage, with a wealth of shops, restaurants and historic buildings to enjoy. Exploring the mountain is also straightforward with mountain railways and some wonderful walks, whether on foot or on snowshoes. If you would like a really close view of the Matterhorn, a helicopter flight around it is truly breathtaking.
Zermatt is much more of a cultural centre than many other resorts. The Matterhorn Museum is a must-see with fascinating exhibits and the English church is a highlight, especially at Christmas. Every April, the Zermatt Unplugged music festival attracts big name acts.
There are also plenty more active possibilities including the fitness centre, indoor tennis and squash, gym, heli-skiing, ice skating, paragliding, stunning walking tours, gorge adventures, ice climbing and tobogganing.

Stay here for the best location in town in terms of skiing right to the boot room door after a day up the mountain. They cannot do more here to make sure your stay is truly memorable and the attention to detail and service is top notch. Dinner in the restaurant was amazing! As was the hot tub over looking the views down to town.
Ski the Matterhorn before anyone else is out of bed! Take the lift on a Thursday morning with the pisteurs and have the entire mountain to yourself (and maybe a few friends).
If you are flying into Switzerland and taking the train to your chosen destination, take the hassle of struggling with all those extra bags and FlyRail them all the way to the railway station, where they can be collected at your leisure.
Billed as the highest glacier palace in the world, this ethereal attraction is well worth a visit. Mysterious sounds accompany you as you discover this glacial world, and there's even an ice slide.
