One user wrote the following about Zermatt: “The ski resort has developed really well over the last few years. ... The Free-ride area above the Gornergrat is particularly beautiful. ... For me, the resort is one of the most beautiful in the Alps. ... The altitude and the lengths of the pistes are unique in Europe. ... In addition, there are lots of  very beautiful places in Zermatt, with old houses and narrow streets. The fact that there are no cars is another great advantage. Walking through the absolutely peaceful village in the evening while the snow is falling is a magical experience.“
