How does the Roman snail survive the winter? Why do Swiss stone pines grow on exposed rocks? How was the Matterhorn actually formed?
Questions of this sort are answered on the various nature and experience trails. Zermatt Bergbahnen AG is placing increasing emphasis on the communication of ecological interrelationships, and interactive posts are aimed at further promoting the attractiveness of the region, especially in summer. The Matterhorn Glacier Trail, leading from the Trockener Steg to the Schwarzsee paradise, was opened in the summer of 2008, and various theme stations provide a clear introduction into the world of the glacier.
