Zermatt Update

Date Posted: 27th Sep 2011
Category:  Zermatt News

In preparation for next season the Swiss resort of Zermatt have sent through their pre-season resort update and there's plenty to look forward too. This year there is open access to one of the resort's spas and more options to enjoy a mountainside fondue— an integral part of a Swiss skiing holiday.

The first piece of exciting news is that Zermatt will feature in Google maps street view from this winter, you will be able to use street view to check out the slopes and the village. Zermatt is following in the footsteps of Whistler having their slopes for people to view online.

Hotels are upping the ante too this winter, with some new ideas coming the the table. The Hotel Silvana will be offering evenings that consist of a meal at the Restaurant Gitz-Gädi, located at the top of the Matterhorn Express, followed by a four kilometre toboggan run, or hike, back into the resort — I know which one I'd prefer!

Not to be outdone by the competition, the Hotel Europe is offering a fondue-picnic. The picnic consists of a fondue and bread for two people, a black-nose sheepskin to sit on, insulated picnic blanket, one bottle of white wine, a thermos of tea, local sausage and rye bread for starters, a surprise dessert and some schnapps to wash it all down with. They will also provide hand-warmers, cutlery & crockery and a sleigh to carry it to your picnic spot.

The Hotel Europe will also be opening their spa to the general public between the hours of 4pm and 8pm. They are offering non-residents of the hotel a package which consists of a partial massage, entry into the wellness area and a five-course meal with aperitif.

The resort's nightlife it also gaining a small boost, as the ever popular Papperla Pub has undergone a major refurbishment over the summer and a new venue, the Time Out Sport Bar & Grill, will open. The aparthotel Monte Rosa in Täsch will boast a new restaurant, the Tschifferli, this winter, offering Welsh and Swiss specialties and complimented with local Swiss wine.
