Planning a trip for 2013 and wondered if anyone has thoughts on when the best snow conditions exist in Zermatt. I know most people like to ski in the sun during March and April, but I am looking for when the best snow for skiing hits the mountain, baring white out conditions.
We are going to Zermatt on June 18th for a few days.We haven't been for a few years and wonder if Matthew is still selling his paintings on Gornergrat.We have bought from him on previous visits and I also traced a friend in England for him so it would be nice to catch up.

Hi, i have several questions if anyone can help. We are planning to land in Geneva and go skiing in Zermatt for 3 days and maybe also spend a night in Riffelalp-Resort and nother in Montreux when travelling from Geneva to Zermatt or on the way back. Is Montreux worth a visit for 1 night? Is it better to drive back and forth or take the train? Can you suggest a train website where we can purchase tickets? Can you suggest a good hotel for Zermatt to stay in? Thank you for any help we get
I am very interested in taking the best photo of the Matterhorn peak, ideally with the golden sunshine lights directly at the peak. Since I do not know which direction the peak is facing, east or west, it could be either sunrise or sunset the best time for photo. Anyone could provide me a clue so that I either get there early in morning or late afternoon? Thank you in advance!
Hi dear VTers, I will be in Zermatt for a day next later this week. Am looking to go up to Gornergrat. I would like to walk around the Zermatt village. I also hear there are good and relatively easy walking trails around Gornergrat. Read about Riffelberg to Rotenboden walk for good views of the Matterhorn Can you please advise on where to start and end this walk? Also I'm not looking to walk in snow or slush. How would the trail be this week, considering still only mod-April. Do not want a steep climb etc. Should we expect closures in the trail or the village. Your help is greatly appreciated as we leave tomorrow. Thanks in advance

Wondering the best way to get from annecy to zermatt.Drive to geneva and pick up train?Is there parking there, and how much is it for overnight?
I was in Zermatt in September 2009 and in one of the souvenir stores, we saw a ceramic cow that was all painted out like a clown. It had a big red nose & all sorts of colourful clothes. It had orange & white striped socks and different coloured boots on - very cute! It also had little twisted horns (green & grey stripes). From memory it was approx 20-25cm long. We loved it & regret that we didn't buy it at the time. I was hoping that someone may know what I am talking about or someone from the store that has it may see this. If anyone has seen it or could let me know what store it was in, I would really really appreciate it. Thank you.
Hello - I am traveling to Zermatt by train from Zurich with my two boys (8 and 10) and my 80 year old mother in law in April. I would like to stay somewhere that has nice views but that also isn't too much walking for my mother in law and isn't outrageously priced. Any advise is appreciated. Also, things to do with my mother in law are also welcome. Many thanks!
Can you suggest a good place for an apres ski party for a group of Americans average age 55?

Hi, I will be landing in Geneva December 16th and am looking for the cheapest way to get to Zermatt until December 21st, when I will be flying back out of Geneva. Does anyone know the best companies (rail or bus) to go with? Thank you! Steve
My partner and i arrive in Zermatt at 5pm in October. we are interested in seeing the Matterhorn to get some great photos.I believe the place to go for the postcard photo is to lake stellisee, is it easy to get to? I guess we only really have one day to explore in Zermatt. Then we would like to go to Jungfrau, and again we can only be there for one day and night. The itinerary we have is 5/10/10-arrive Zermatt,6/10/10-arrive interlaken,7/10/10 arrive Lucerne for two nights. With this time frame can we see the Matterhorn and the Jungfrau and Mt.Pilatus? can anyone help with what we can achieve in our short time?
We will be arriving in Zermatt early in October,(2 couples), and am wondering if there is competition between hotels/ apartments at the rail station to have you stay. I remember arriving there in January 1984, and found representatives of various places at the station offering well priced accommodation. Is this still the case, or have things altered in the last 25 years? :)
Hi, I arrive in Zermatt on 18th June around noon and then leave on the Glacier Express on 20th June. I am currently planning to spend 18th June exploring Zermatt and then on 19th June, I would like to go to Matterhorn. Questions : 1. Is there a better way to do this ? 2. How long does the trip to Matterhorn and back take 3. Can I do more than 1 peak in 1 day 4. What kind of clothing do I need to visit Matterhorn ? I don't intend to do any skiing etc. I come from Singapore and don't have any heavy jackets etc. Do I need to buy them here or do I buy them there ? Is there any option to rent the such snow clothing in Zermatt ? 5. I am staying at OBERE MATTENSTRASSE 18. Is there a bus that I can take to the hotel (I have a swiss pass) or do I need to take a taxi ? Many thanks in advance. Jeevan
Please help!does anyone know if you are able to ski for beginners in zermatt during the end of july or early august?
After reading this forum for couple of hours I still could not find all answers to my questions, so if someone could give me an advice I would greatly appreciate it. I’m traveling with my wife (mid age, both very active) in mid May and planning to stay 2 nights in Zermatt area and 2 nights in Interlaken area. We will be driving a rental car, coming from Lake Como area, going to Zermatt, then Interlaken, then to Germany. If the transfer between these places will take approximately half day each, we are left with just 1.5 day in each place (Zermatt and Interlaken). I need some logistics, please: 1. Which scenic road to take from Como to Interlaken (or Tasch, or …)? 2. Town/village to stay for 2 days with a car. I know that cars are not allowed beyond Tasch, but still would like to use it as much as I can instead of taking trains. 3. What to do/to see afternoon on day of arrival (we love hiking) 4. Next full day – see Matterhorn! Take Gornergrat train? Kleines Matterhorn? Both? 5. Drive to Interlaken. Again which is the most scenic route? 6. Town/village to stay for 2 days with a car in Interlaken area. 7. What to do/to see afternoon on day of arrival. 8. Next full day – what to do/see (may be 2-3 hours hike)? Jungfrau? 9. And last question: for all these activities is it worth buying a Half fare card or just pay the tickets as you go? I know I asked too many questions, but even any information is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
I am traveling to Zermatt from Boston, MA USA the second week in January to ski for seven days with a group of eight advanced skiers. There has been some controversy on whether to bring our own equipment or to rent once we arrive. I've thoroughly researched some questions that I have about the traveling process but have been unsuccessful with finding some answers. Some questions I have are how accommodating are the trains and town travel for bringing skiing equipment? How expensive are rentals and for what kind of quality? Some of my party seems to think that it is just going to be too inconvenient to bring such bulky heavy luggage to accommodate our skis and boots. Others think the rental quality will be poor and effect our skiing abilities. HELP?!
My son and wife plan to ski Zermatt from 7-9 December. They are looking for a ski guide to take them around the mountain for one or two days. If you know of an English-speaking knowledegable guide, please email his or her contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org. My son is an advanced skier. My wife is an intermediate skier. Thanks!
hi I'm thinking of making a day trip for st gallens to zermatt and back next sunday. I know the train rides are crazy but I heard the matterhorn is gorgerous so I want to see it. and i only have 3 days in switzerland. I'm thinking of taking the 6+am train which should get me in zermatt by 12 and then going back in the evening. my question is. 1) I bought an interrail card to use for my trip. Does it have any train restrictions in terms of timing etc? (i.e peak/off peak). Also do I have to make a booking for this journey? and does the interrail pass cover my entire journey? or is part of it own by a private railway 2) To view the matterhorn, I understand there are three viewing points. With my time constraint, and having the interrail card ( I understand I only get a discount for the gornegrat and not the other two), what would be your best recommendation? Many thanks for all your help!
