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.
Hohtalli
Hohtalli offers world-famous skiing for advanced skiers and snowboarders; adrenaline guaranteed.
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.
Swiss Ski School
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.
Summit Ski School
Those who come first win? Apparently so, as Summit was the first ski school to have opened in Zermatt and it's still flourishing.
Mountain Tracks Guides
Stay safe, improve your technique and explore further with well travelled guides.
Toboggan Runs
The toboggan runs in Zermatt can be fun, but they're also used by skiers and snowboarders so check beforehand.
Mont Cervin
Arguably the most lavish spa in Zermatt - if not Switzerland - Mont Cervin offers spa junkies 1,700-square-metes of awe-inspiring amenities.
Stoked
A little healthy competition is good, and that's certainly the case at Stoked; as the original challenger to the Swiss Ski School, this place shows amateurs how it's down with razor-sharp teaching techniques.
Chesa Valese
What Chesa Valese lacks in size it certainly makes up for in style, with a beautiful basement setting that offers a sauna, steam room, whirlpool and solarium.
Mirabeau Spa
Mirabeau Spa caters predominantly to the hotel of the same name, but is open to the public, too; the Finnish sauna is its crowning glory.
Brian Farqueson
Now one of the most highly respected ski guides in the area, Brian Farqueson will ensure you're more than ready to hit the powder.
Christoph Petrig
Ski skills need brushing up on? Contact Christoph Petrig, who'll have you up and on those slopes in no time.
Klaus Tscherig
Klaus Tscherig is more than ski-savvy; if he can't get you sliding down the slopes, nobody can.
