Calling all sports and outdoor fans! If biking, climbing or trail running is one of your favourite sports, then you’re in the right place with our Alpine Experience Zermatt! For two days, pro-athletes René Wildhaber (MTB), Jonas Schild (climbing) and Helmut Schiessl (trail running) will coach you at one of the best spots in Zermatt's unique mountain world.

You spend the first day on your favourite discipline with either René Wildhaber on the bike, Jonas Schild on the rock face or Helmut Schiessl on the trail. The second day promises an Alpine triathlon with a difference: under the watchful eye of our professionals, everyone takes part in the 3 disciplines together: climbing, biking and trail running. This is the ideal opportunity to try out a different Alpine sport. The ultimate highlight of the event is the arrival of everyone together in Zermatt at the end of this extraordinary Alpine triathlon.  

Best of all – you can't actually buy a place on the event, you can only win one of the 10 exclusive spots. The overnight stays, all your meals and everything from coaching to the equipment are all free of charge. To top it all, you get a complete Mammut outfit or bike gear from Triple2. What are you waiting for? Apply now for one of these sought-after, free places and experience a unique Alpine adventure in Zermatt!

The Alpine village of Zermatt is embedded in a unique mountain landscape at the foot of the world famous Matterhorn.  

A day on the bike promises one highlight after the other. The Gornergrat electric rack railway takes you from Zermatt up to 3,100 metres above sea level. This trip alone, with its constant views of the Matterhorn, is an experience in itself. The trails up here are top of every mountain biker's bucket list, from flowing runs to more technical challenges – it's all there. The next highlight is the Schwarzsee Lake at 2,583 metres above sea level. And for those up for the challenge, there is an optional extra with a bike & hike loop to the remote Schönbiel Hut. Rene Wildhaber is your constant companion, on hand to improve your bike handling skills. Serious fun on the trail guaranteed! 

The climbing day takes us to the Riffelhorn (2,928 m), recognised as one of the most beautiful climbing mountains. It combines all the benefits you need: just a 15-minute walk from the Gornergrat railway station, views of over 20 four thousand metre peaks and of the Gorner glacier, good rock and a variety of climbing routes. Put simply: a climber's dream. 

The two climbing routes known in German as Bartgeier (Bearded Vulture) and Querdenken (Lateral Thinking) measure four pitches and correspond to the UIAA difficulty level 4+ and 5+ throughout. The rock is grippy gneiss, which offers a nice variable climb on the south-eastern edge of the Riffelhorn. The climbing route is partly exposed with superb views of the Monte Rosa massif and the Gorner glacier. With Jonas Schild you can gain (initial) experience on a multi-pitch route. If you still have any energy left afterwards, you can burn it off in the climbing garden at Dossen. This requires skills in the 6a to 9b difficulty range. 

The trail running takes place in one of the most beautiful backdrops in Switzerland. It even includes an exciting interlude – crossing the longest suspension bridge in the Alps. We start in Randa, cross the almost 500-metre suspension bridge and continue via Täschalp, Tuftern to Sunnegga. You will be accompanied by professional mountain runner Helmut Schiessl, who will share valuable tips and tricks. It’s a unique opportunity to get to know a new area – a varied trail run with fantastic views.
