As was the case last year, Zermatt stands out again this year in the “2016 Alpine Rankings.” The Handelszeitung finds that it is more than just a winter sports location – “it is a promise of a pure skiing experience at the foot of the highest four thousand-metre peaks in the Alps,” writes the editorial team.
No other destination can compare with Zermatt. The renowned newspaper bases this on superlatives and the investments, with which the activities offered in and around Zermatt are massively and continuously improved. The Alpine Ranking compares the 35 best-known winter sports locations in the Alps each year.
