Randa cross-country ski trail Cross-country skiing

If Täsch offers a rather leisurely cross-country ski experience, Randa is the place for a more energetic challenge. The terrain is gently undulating and demands skill and fitness.

The valley floor is less flat around Randa than in Täsch, and therefore ideal for skiers seeking a more technical challenge. The cross-country ski trails – both classic-style and skating-style – boost technical ability and fitness, and help build muscle strength.

  • The trail in Täsch can be reached from Zermatt in 12 minutes by train
  • The Täsch/Randa trails may be connected, depending on snow conditions
  • Two levels of difficulty: A (Täsch) and B (Randa)
  • Changing rooms and WCs are at the Matterhorn Terminal in Täsch and at the Restaurant Hole in One available
  • Equipment available from nearby sports shops
  • By the golf course clubhouse
  • In the village centre at Moos
  • At the Restaurant Hole in One

In all, Täsch and Randa have 15 km of skating-style and 10 km of classic-style trails.

We recommend:
  • Cross-country skis and poles
  • Suitable cross-country ski boots
  • Clothing suitable for the weather (waterproof, windproof and breathable)
  • Hat or headband plus gloves and sunglasses
The cross-country skiing trail is especially beautiful after a fresh snowfall and when it is still cold, which keeps the snow on the trees. This is when the landscape looks like a winter fairy tale.


Additional information and recommendations are available from the guest information centre at Randa station.

  • Please be considerate to other cross-country skiers.
  • Walkers are not permitted on the cross-country ski trails.
  • Observe all signposting and directions.
  • When overtaking another cross-country skier, keep poles close to body to avoid injury.
  • On descents, maintain adequate distance from the cross-country skier ahead, and always adapt speed to conditions.
  • If you wish to pause along a trail or if you fall, vacate the tracks as quickly as possible.
