Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Zermatt

Gornegrat
Expect gorgeous views and gentle slopes at Gornegrat; that is, until they turn steep and test your carving technique.
Schwarzee
Despite being somewhat overlooked, Schwarzee is one of our favourite places to slice across the snow. Here's why; steep slopes weaving between trees, beautiful white powder and routes that will test even the most skilled skier. Need we say more?
Sunnegga
As something of a ski resort in its own right, Sunnegga offers ski bunnies challenging slopes and lashings of superstar style.
Gornergrat Railway
The Gornergrat Railway is where you'll find the cogwheel train; as a functioning museum piece, it'll take you up the mountain in old school-style.
Hohtalli
Hohtalli offers world-famous skiing for advanced skiers and snowboarders; adrenaline guaranteed.
Kleine Matterhorn
Get high at Kleine Matterhorn, whose top reaches 3,320-metres; with thin air and super-steep slopes, even the most hardcore skier will be kept on their frostbitten toes.
Toboggan Runs
The toboggan runs in Zermatt can be fun, but they're also used by skiers and snowboarders so check beforehand.
The T Bar
Found in the basement of The Hotel Pollux, The T Bar is where the apres-ski party's at with live music and a rowdy crowd of young revellers.
Papperla
Expect live music and a boisterous crowd that spills out on the street outside at Papperla.
North Wall
As the ultimate insider's hangout, the North Wall is where resort workers flock to unwind after long shifts tending to demanding ski bunnies.
Pizzeria Roma
Pizzeria Roma serves the tastiest, widest, fattest pizzas in the region. What's not to love?
Sparky’s
Cheap 'n' cheerful Sparky's offers mouthwatering meat and other cheap eats in an intimate, non-smoking atmosphere. Bliss.
Grampis
Far from gourmet grub, Grampis offers perfect pizzas; forget about high-end and enjoy this place for what it is.
Chez Gaby
Despite the lack of obvious kitchen, Chezy Gaby serves the kind of meat that would please even the most bloodthirsty of carnivores.
Hotel Bahnhof
Hotel Bahnhof is something of an institution in Zermatt, with a location beside the railway station and dormitory rooms that cater to the student crowd. Who said you can't ski on a shoestring?
Coeur des Alpes
Coeur des Alpes is a beautiful bed-and-breakfast, with cosy interiors and impeccable service.
