Zermatt's ski season is the only one that continues year-round, open every day so long as the weather isn't too bad.
The resort boasts Europe's highest ski runs, now with Europe's highest restaurant next to them and also has Switzerland's longest ski run at 22 km (14 miles) and wide carving runs to mogul fields galore.
The resort's skiing area in winter reaches as far as Bella Italia with 313km (196 miles) of ski runs and currently the resort has some of the deepest snow ion the world with over seven metres (23 feet) on its glacier slopes.
