Which ski pass do I need?
Note that children 0-9 inclusive ski for free, between 10 and 15 at 50% price, between 16 and 20 at a 15% discount, and seniors over 65 at 10%. On Saturdays, children under the age of 16 ski for free.
There are two main ski pass options. We have listed them below with costs for a six day adult pass as a guide. For the full price list please click here.
There is a SFr 5 deposit on the ski-pass which is included in the prices below.
1) International Cervinia. SFr 415. SKI AREA: Over 400 km
This covers all of Zermatt, Cervinia, and Valtournenche.
Worth taking if you intend to ski on the Italian side for more than 1 day, or if you would like the option of doing the occasional run there when in the Klein Matterhorn area. In our opinion this is the one to go for, since it would be a pity not to sample la dolce vita at least once, and the greater flexibility is worth the additional CHF 8 per day compared to the option below. On some days the weather may be better on the Italian side and this gives you the flexibility to ski wherever the sun is shining the brightest!
2) Zermatt only. SFr. 364. SKI AREA: 200 km
This limits you to all of Zermatt. The one to go for if you're sure you don't want to sample Italy. If you do decide to go across to the Italian side, you can get a day supplement for CHF 40, which brings the total cost for the 6 days to CHF 404.
Note that you should invariably get the International ski pass for children. Under the age of 10 the passes are free, but the supplement should you decide to go across is not. And they need passes covering Italy if in Cervinia. For children up to the age of 16, the extra cost of an 6 day international pass is CHF 26, but the supplement for 1 day costs the same as for adults, i.e. CHF 40. So probably worth getting the international ski pass for them.
And for the last category late teens and seniors we'll let you do your own maths!
