Zermatt overview


On the Italian border of the canton of Valais in the west of Switzerland, at the end of the 30 km-long Nikolaital, lies Zermatt, the village at the foot of the Matterhorn, the most photographed mountain in the world. Zermatt epitomizes their image of Switzerland; high-alpine, awe-inspiring and original. Almost one-third of the 4,000-metre mountains in the alps are grouped around this world-famous health resort, which has been visited by mountaineers from all around the world since the first successful ascent of the Matterhorn in 1865. The hotels are restaurants are world-class, and the ski area is not only the highest in the Alps - it is also one of the best developed and most convenient in the world, ensuring thrilling sporting experiences on the steepest slopes in the world - and that 365 days a year. The climate is of an excellent quality: with 300 sunny days a year, there is less rainfall than anywhere else in Switzerland. The air in Zermatt is clear, dry and clean, because, since 1947, only electric cars without a combustion engine are allowed to operate in the village.

Zermatt - the ''Mountain Mecca'' has...

  • 29 mountains soaring over 4000m (13,100ft)
  • nine of the ten highest mountains in Europe
  • the highest (ski) lift in Europe - Klein Matterhorn (Gobba di Rollin) 3899m (12,830ft)
  • the largest summer skiing area in the Alps (all year 9 ski lifts / 25 km runs)
  • the longest winter skiing season in Europe (late November to early May)
  • the longest consistently open ski run in Europe (Klein Matterhorn to Zermatt 13 km - open late November to mid April) 


Given the popularity of Zermatt, interested participants are urged to register now and to book their hotels as soon as possible. Delegates are reminded that they are responsible for making their own travel and accommodation arrangements.
