At the top of Hotalli expert skiers should head over to Rote Nase and Stockhorn for some of the most challenging runs in Zermatt. Beyond Stockhorn there is a slew of superb off-piste runs but some of the area is on a glacier and it should only be done with a mountain guide. Stockhorn itself offers some of the most challenging skiing in Zermatt, and the bump run at Triftji is world-famous. Bump competitions are regularly held here, including the end of season Tiftji bump bash that attracts an international field of competitors. The whole area is north-facing, so holds its snow well but it is only for advanced skiers and snowboarders. Again, the off-piste is very accessible, but beware of the dangers as the weather can, and does, change quickly here. The area also contains one of Zermatt’s most exciting red runs; the White Hare. It starts at the top of the cable car and then drops all the way down to Gant going via Grunsee. There are plenty of options to drop into the powder on either side of the run if you so wish.
