Zermatt – a mile high ski Mecca for all levels of skiers at the foot of the majestic Matterhorn! Best known for its southern exposure, high snowfall levels and quintessential Swiss charm, Zermatt is an incredible ski destination, one of the top 10 in the world!  Ski the three main ski areas of Rothorn, Gornergrat or Matterhorn Glacier, and then ski across the border to Cervinia, Italy for lunch. Zermatt is also renowned for its "all-inclusiveness" and no use of cars in the village – electric-cars and horse-drawn sleighs and carriages are the only transport allowed. Nightlife, entertainment, shopping and non-stop skiing-Zermatt has it all! Soothe your mind with classical music, enjoy live concerts or dance 'till you drop in clubs that stay open until 4 in the morning... Zermatt's the rockin' place to be! From pubs to Zermatt's discos, there's something for everyone - young and old alike. Have a blast, but don't forget... The ski lifts are open at 8 am tomorrow morning!!

The Hotel Alex**** in the heart of Zermatt is a mountain hut on the outside and a stylish boutique hotel on the inside. It features a superb spa, sports and fitness area and offers free Wi-Fi. Behind the classic chalet building there is an attractive interior of traditional furniture, brocade curtains, velvet pillows, exquisite carving and precious paintings of the Matterhorn. Spa facilities include an indoor pool, 3 massage rooms, separate women’s and men’s saunas, a Finnish sauna, a tepidarium, a sanarium, a massage chair and a tropical shower. Hotel Alex features a large sun terrace with garden lounge and serves a wide range of grill specialties in its excellent restaurant. There is also an elegant smokers' and whiskey lounge and the Montana Lounge, inviting you to read or have a nice chat.
