Zermatt is one of a handful of resorts left in the world that still endeavours to open for skiing every day of the year. The resort operates Europe's highest ski lifts in the summer only on its glacier, with spectacular views of the Matterhorn. The range of skiing is so extensive that Zermatt offers a bigger lift-served vertical than any southern hemisphere resort even, in the northern hemisphere's mid-summer.

A variety of special Summer Skiing packages are available that include your choice of stay duration, your choice of start date, your choice of hotel category or apartment and your choice of board basis. All packages include lift ticket and a free entry to the Matterhorn Museum. Prices start from 152 Swiss Francs for a two-night stay with two-day lift pass in low category accommodation to 1,410 Swiss Francs for seven nights' half board in a four-star superior hotel with seven-day lift pass.
