Founders of the new programme Philippe Oswald and Giovanni Beretta want to welcome winter in Zermatt with their "Winter Celebrations" concept – a destination project involving a wide range of service partners. In the month from 17 December 2021 to 17 January 2022, they aim to present Zermatt in a perfect light. The project is based on three pillars:

  • Light art
  • Ice art
  • A supporting programme of events

The Odermatt brothers and ice artists will be in situ during the four week period to carve ice sculptures with diverse subjects, including Christmas, snow sports and Lucy Walker, the first woman to climb the Matterhorn.

The sculptures will be illuminated from 5 pm to 9 pm each day and supported with a diverse programme of events.

Details of the Winter Celebrations programme are available here.
