Can I book the Ski Test without accommodation?
Zermatt Tourism only offers the Ski Test package as a complete package.
I’m spending four days in Zermatt, but want to do the Ski Test on two days only. Is that OK?
The overnight accommodation is linked to the ski pass. This means that you can Ski Test on as many days as you have booked overnight accommodation. It is up to the visitor whether to Ski Test on the day of arrival or departure in addition to the days between the overnight stays.
Can children ski test too?
The test center does not offer skiing for children, which is why the Ski Test package can only be booked for adults.
Is it possible to hire touring skis or snowboards?
No. Click here for a list of all the ski brands.
We’re travelling as a couple, but only one person wants to use the Ski Test package.
You have to book the package online for one person in a double room and contact the hotel in advance to register the second person. Eventually a surcharge must be paid at the accomodation.
