Zermatt-Cervinia: Link between Zermatt ski region and Italy now open


With ideal snow conditions and a total of 26 kilometres of pistes in Zermatt and Italy, winter sports afficionados have a lot to look forward to from Saturday, 29 June 2013.

There are first-class winter sport opportunities during 365 days a your for your enjoyment at the Zermatt-Matterhorn resort. But summer skiing makes for a unique experience. It kicks off first thing in the morning with a cable car ride to the highest ski region in the Alps, 3,883 metres above sea level – including a wonderful view of the Matterhorn. Now, from Saturday 29th June on, the summer ski region at the Rosa Plateau in Zermatt will be linked to Italy‘s Cervinia slopes.

The first cable car on Saturday will set off as early as 6.30 a.m. This experience is unique to Zermatt - nowhere else in the world is it possible to ski in two countries (Switzerland and Italy) in the summertime.
