HELISKI Zermatt

 

Zermatt is located at 1620 m a.s.l., at the bottom of the Zermatt valley, in
the canton of Valais in western Switzerland which marks the border with
Italy. In other words: holidays in Zermatt are holidays on the sunny side of
Switzerland, where the adventurous alpine worlds and the romantic
atmosphere of the mountain villages meet and merge.

While retaining a typical welcoming atmosphere, it has developed into a
modern tourist resort for both winter and summer.
Closed to traffic, it boasts excellent connections, amazing lifts and
kilometers of slopes: here you can ski even in summer!
The snow-covered viewpoints of the area invite to suggestive winter hikes,
snowshoe tours or tobogganing.
Without forgetting the igloo village and the famous sun terraces of the
restaurants.

Heliskiing and freerides with runs from Zermatt in the highest located massif of the Alps, passing the Matterhorn on the Monte Rosa. Runs in one of the best freeride areas of the Alps – explore this paradise with us!

 

Thanks to the altitude of the area around Grosseney and the frequent accumulation of southern snow on the Monte Rosa massif, there is always to expect productive snowfalls. From end of December to beginning of April you will encounter the desired powder snow. You can ski and snowboard there often until May with ideal conditions of firn.

The condition of the slopes, perfectly groomed and for all levels is a guarantee. Between Zermatt and the neighboring Italian ski resort of Breuil / Cervinia, on skis or snowboard you slip into a dream. For everyone, the scenario is record-breaking: you can ski among the white peaks of the most impressive four thousand Alpine peaks, with the Matterhorn in the front row. It goes without saying that even for hikers here it is a godsend!

The legend of the Matterhorn was born in 1865 when the peak was conquered for the first time and news of the event quickly travelled around the world. Over 150 years on, the peak, more than 4000 metres in altitude and once considered to be unconquerable, seems to act like a magnet on mountaineers from all over the world. Respect, awe, fascination – all of these make the legendary peak one of the most extraordinary destinations for travellers from near and far. Matte + Horn = Matterhorn. The name derives, or so it is thought, from “Matte”, a dialect word meaning meadow, here referring to the grassy valley stretching out beneath the Gorner Gorge. It is that part of the valley where the village of Zermatt (“zur Matt”, or “on the meadow”) is located today. And “Horn”, which is the popular name for the Matterhorn among the local population. By contrast, locals on the Italian side of the nearby border refer to it as “Monte Cervino”.
