Hi. I intend to visit Zermatt to have a view of the Matterhorn and the snow experience in September (Saturday). Is it good timing to experience the snow and clear view of Matterhorn ? Do I have to get the cable car from Zermatt train station or i can enjoy both the view and snow from the train station or the village itself?
Check the Swiss Train timetable for the time required to travel to Zermatt and back – Have a look at http://www.sbb.ch/en – takes slightly less than 3h one way with a train change at Visp for cog-wheel train up to Zermatt.
Don’t know what the weather will be in September 2018 – check short term weather forecast and webcams before deciding on your trip. Best views experience in my opinion is the train up to Gornergrat with a short walk down to Riffelalp via Riffelsee).
But you can see the Matterhorn from Zermatt – provided weather allows. Webcams for Zermatt area are at https://www.zermatt.ch/en/Webcams
Cheers – have fun! Johnnie Swiss
