Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps

Matterhorn is one of the most photographed peaks in the Swiss Alps - has been a magnet to snow lovers and mountaineers since 1865.

Situated on the Italian border, this 4,000 metre mountain is the only peak in Europe to offer guaranteed snow. First timers, be prepared to spend some time horizontal. There are a few ski areas for beginners.

Most of the skiing is best for people at intermediate and advanced levels, who can spend the morning in Switzerland and the afternoon across the border in Cervinia, Italy. The 29 mountains offer plenty of runs.

If you are not the best on ski’s then avoid die-hard runs, like Torah, in one of the resort's two snowboard parks. Down from the slopes, after a scenic aerial tram ride to thaw out you can visit the beautiful village of Zermatt and just sit back, have a hot chocolate and watch the world go by.

A word of warning; don’t expect this to be a ‘bargain’ break. The cost of living is quite expensive but the trade off is that you can expect a ski or snowboarding trip with the wow factor.

Although living costs are quite expensive you can still search for a bargain snow villa with Bargain Villas.
