Summer skiing

Snow enjoyment on the glacier

Summer skiing – this is something everyone must experience. Making turns in snow when summer temperatures prevail in the village.

Do you have a deep desire to go skiing? Take the gondola from Zermatt to the Klein Matterhorn at 3,883 m via Furi and Trockener Steg. There, it is time to step into your bindings and enjoy snow sports along 21 km of pistes. Zermatt – Matterhorn offers the largest and highest altitude summer ski area in Europe.

For summer skiing, clothing normally worn on a warm day of spring skiing is recommended. And if one wants to enjoy the best downhill runs on the Theodul Glacier, one should get up very early in the morning. Because the best conditions prevail under the not yet very strong morning sun. At noon the summer skiing area closes, so that it will reawaken in its best form the next day.

Freestyle fans can also look forward to this time of year, because the summer ski area includes the summer Zermatt Snowpark. This is one of the highest Freestyle spots and among the best snow parks in the Alps.

It is not unusual to meet up with well-known and famous skiers from around the world in the Zermatt – Matterhorn summer ski area. They also do not want to miss the perfectly prepared pistes, fast runs and downhill runs with a great bite. Over one hundred ski teams from 22 countries train on the glacier as they get ready for the next winter season.

Whoever wants to improve one’s skiing style will find summer offers in the ski schools. And the sports stores in Zermatt offer the necessary equipment so that there is nothing more to get in the way of a great summer snow sports experience.
