For the fourth year in a row, international 6-day adult Zermatt lift pass price have been left unchanged at CHF434 (around £335).
This pass covers not only Zermatt ‘s impressive ski area, but also the neighbouring resorts of Cervinia and Valtournenche across the border in Italy. The link from Zermatt to Cervinia is very high and snow-sure.
Less expensive that US ski resorts
The Zermatt ski pass may seem expensive on the face of it, but this is far from the case when compared to the cost of lift tickets in the major US resorts.
For example, a six-day lift pass for Aspen in February costs $834 (reduced from $894 if you buy online in advance) – that’s around £630.
The equivalent pass for Breckenridge costs €582 (around £440) – and for Vail it costs $768 (£580).
A Record Beating Ski Area
Not only does Zermatt offer the sixth largest interconnected ski area in the world*, but it also has Europe’s highest groomed ski pistes on the Matterhorn Paradise glacier, so snow is guaranteed year round.
What’s more, Zermatt boasts two of the world’s longest uninterrupted ski runs with the biggest verticals. First is the acclaimed Ventina from Plateau Rosa on the Italian boarder to Cervinia, some 1430 vertical metres below. You can also take on the epic run from Klein Matterhorn at 3883m down to Zermatt at 1620m – a mighty 2263m of vertical drop!
Massive reductions for children and younger skiers under 20
Zermatt offers generous discounts on the cost of ski passes not just for children, but also young adults under 20 years of age, who are eligible for 25% off the normal price.
Children under 16 years old pay only half price, while kids under 9 years of age ski completely free of charge!
Special passes for beginners
Zermatt’s beginners’ area is located close the Sunnegga Express funicular top station and a dedicated ski pass is available for beginners to save them money but still allow them access to a selection of novice lifts.
Options for walkers
The ‘Peak Pass’ is ideal for pedestrians who can use the lifts to take advantage of Zermatt’s extensive network of winter walking trails, as well as meeting skiers in their group for lunch at one of Zermatt’s superb mountain restaurants. The young person discount also applies to this pass (and also the beginners pass).
