Hi there. I am taking my first trip to Zermatt arriving on 13th Feb for long weekend of skiing. I am travelling solo and wondering if anyone has any suggestions for good places to drink and eat (on and off the slopes) or ski runs not to miss (I only have 3 full ski days). Also wondering if there are any organised ski groups or things like that?
The bar at the Alex Hotel is amazing for a nice cold cocktail in front of the fire…
If you’ve got some cash to burn (around 200 chf) I think then get a seat on a helicopter from Air Zermatt to Monte Rosa first thing and cut out the long cable car/chair/poma ride to the top – and it also means you can ski the Cervinia side in the sunshine all morning.
I recommend the sausages and polenta at Monte Rosa Hut. Alternatively theTheodulpass restaurant is very good. If you do go down into the Italian side you MUST try their hot chocolate – rich, dark and smooth, have never seen its like anywhere else.
