5 Reasons NOT to go to Zermatt 1. TRANSFERS (ACROSS TRAIN TRACKS) - there are no bus transfers between Zurich/Geneva Airport and Zermatt. This leaves the train which takes 3+ hours and is not equipped for ski equipment. Oh and you may even have to be prepared to carry yourself and your luggage across the train tracks at St Nikholas 2. NON ACCESS ALL AREAS SKI PASS - Your ski pass will not work for you at Gornergrat Bhan. I paid 323 CHF for a 6 day ski pass being promised access to all uplifts. Arrive at Gornergrat terminal and asked to pay another 82 CHF, hmmm let me think about that??? 3. 5 STAR ACCOMMODATION?? - Can you please take your sheets off and take out your garbage before you leave. 4. FOOD POISONING - from a five star resort.....beware the seafood and lamb. 5. YOU REMEMBER COOL RUNNINGS? - well if you do you'll remember the frosty response the Swiss gave the Jamaicans.... Enough said!
