Prelude to winter: test the best ski brands

Calling all skiers: the latest 2011/2012 ski-brand models can be tested in the Zermatt ski region up to the end of November 2011. The offer includes hotel accommodation, skipass and skis as well as tips from ski instructors. So it’s time to hit the pistes!

Skiing at 3800 metres above sea level as winter approaches – an absolute dream. In autumn 2011, ADAC awarded Zermatt the accolade of the world’s best ski region for the third time in succession. So why not check it out for yourself at the start of winter and test the best ski brands at the same time?

Skis are ready and waiting
The packages offered by Zermatt include: two overnight stays with half board in a hotel, in a holiday apartment without half board, a two-day skipass and tips and tricks from licensed ski instructors. Arrival on Friday, departure Sunday. The ski test centre is open from Monday to Sunday, seven days a week.

The skis are ready at the ski test center and waiting at the top station of Trockener Steg (Matterhorn Express, Matterhorn glacier paradise aerial cableways). You need to bring your own boots and poles as well as other equipment or you can hire them in equipment stores in Zermatt. Skipasses and all necessary information will be provided at the hotel reception when you check in on Friday evening.

Taxi Christophe offers ski testers special terms for the trip from Täsch to Zermatt (see links below).

Be technically at the top
The most prestigious ski brands will be available to skiers for individual testing: Atomic, Blizzard, Dynastar, Elan, Fischer, Head, K2, Movement, Nordica, Rossignol, Salomon, Scott and Völkl. After an expert discussion, the skis which suit you best will be prepared and adjusted to your boots. Then all you have to do is ski onto the piste, get the feel of the skis and enjoy the Alpine panorama and the Matterhorn.
