Cheap ski hire Zermatt
Switzerland's most famous resort, Zermatt, brings together everything you could ever want for in a ski resort, from its views of the world's most photogenic mountain, the Matterhorn, to its narrow streets lined with wonky, weathered chalets. The Swiss style chalets are broken up by an eclectic mix of hotels and businesses- there are over 120 hotels in the resort. Surrounded by 38 summits above 4,000m, the car-free town of Zermatt is full of life, with a population of 5,700 supplemented by a steady stream of visitors from all over the world. This includes the likes of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who can frequently be found there.
Zermatt is perhaps most famous for its après ski, and you certainly won’t be disappointed. World class bars and restaurants sit alongside designer shops and chic boutiques, and the town itself has a decidedly luxurious feel. From the traditional Swiss bar of Dancing Simi, and the jazz focused Pink Elephant, to the loud and lively Hennu Stall, there is a nightlife scene here for almost every taste. The restaurants are similarly varied and excellent, with over 40 eateries in the town. At the more affordable end of the spectrum Brown Cow serves fantastic hamburgersm and the Weisshorn is great for Mexican food, but you might also be seduced by the more opulent options that litter Zermatt, such as La Gitan’s decadent champagne fondue. Infamous for being one of the most expensive resorts in Europe, SkiDiscount helps take the financial sting out of Zermatt’s tail by cutting the cost of your ski rental significantly.
As a ski destination, especially for families, intermediates, experts and ski tourers, Zermatt sits up with the best. It has snow-sure slopes from late November to the end of April, making it a wise early and late season choice. Several high altitude top stations (up to 3,820m), 350km of pistes facing all aspects (counting the linked resorts of Cervinia and Valtournenche in Italy), a slick lift system that improves every year, extensive off piste, outstanding mountain restaurants, and a buzzing, cosmopolitan town all serve to make it a cut above the rest.
